  • 1-How did your interest for computers start? Which year was that?

  • My interest in computers started around the year 1985 / 1986 when i first
    heared of the good old cbm64.

  • 2-What machines did you previously have? What did you do with them?

  • i started like many people with the cbm64, (which i still have) and i the very
    beginning i only played games on it and didnt do much with it.

    later on i started to get interested in the music coz i heared the goodies from
    Rob Hubbard and others. some time later i med other guy's who had the mighty
    cbm64 too and saw they did other things with it than just play games.
    i joined a group called The Dream Team 7007 and started write music.
    after some years the Amiga came and we thought it was time to gow with the
    flow and cintinue our destination on the Amiga.

  • 3-For what specific reason did you end up making music rather than gfx, coding?

  • i started compose music coz my group needed someone who was able to do it.
    we had our coders and gfx guy's and the only thing they where missing was a
    musician. i gave it a try and i liked it.

  • 4-Which composing programs have you been using? Which one in particular?

  • on cbm64 i used soundmon and rockmon and on Amiga i used Soundtracker,
    Protracker and Futurecomposer.

  • 5-With which module did you feel you had reached your goal?

  • i think i reached my goal with Perceptionized 1 to 10, unfortunatly i dont
    have those tunes anymore.

  • 6-Is there a tune you would like not to remember? For what reason?

  • hehe yeah there are a lot of tunes i would not remember, but i had fun at
    that time to make them. the reason for it is that they are so bad.

  • 7-In your opinion, what's the value of a music in a demo, game?

  • the music in a demo is the most important thing if you ask me coz when i hear
    bad music in a great programmed demo i dont look long to it coz the music is
    anoying me and i hate looking at a demo without music.

  • 8-At present, are you still composing? For professional or leisure purposes?

  • at the moment im not composing anymore, didnt even try as long as i have a PC.
    Maybe in the future i will give it a try again.
    after i dropped scene i started to play in bands so i had no time for it.

  • 9-What do you think of today's pieces of music such as mpeg,wave,midi,etc...?

  • well midi and mod's still rock, i still collect all i can get on the www

  • 10-Could you tell us some of your all times favourite tunes?

  • i have lots of tunes i still like and that are still my favourites, i cant
    name them all coz thats to much.

  • 11-Are you planning to make an audio cd with some of your music remastered?

  • im not planning to remaster any of my tunes coz that would be a waste of time
    and waste of the cd :P

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • i listen to lots of bands but some of my favourite bands are :
    Extreme, Steelheart, Bon Jovi

  • 13-What does/did the amiga/c64 scene give you?

  • The cbm64 and Amiga scene gave me the best time of my life, i still mis it
    and im glad i was a part of it.

  • 14-Are you still active in the scene these days?

  • hmmm well im still in scene but not like it was in the old day's.
    im not in any group at the moment but i like the things i do now and dont need
    a group for that ;)

  • 15-Anyone to greet? Anything left to say? Feel free...

  • yeah i like to greet some old friends i had and hope to findout what they do
    and if they are all okay. i would like to send some hello's to:

    Marc P (panther), Predator, Mike the revolution, DR.awesome, icu2, all of EOC
    1999, all of Horizon, all at subway / dream team, and all i really cant
    remember but who remember me...
