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

  • I'm not sure,but i think it was the year 1984.Many People was talking about
    a great new Homecomputer called C-64.This Computer was comming up very popular
    that days. Then i meet a friend and i was very impressed about that what i saw.
    2 month later i got my first homecomputer, and erverything started....

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

  • My First Computer was a C-64.First i was playing Games and then i got Koala
    Paint and i tried to draw some Pictures,but first they really looked bad.....
    In the Year 1987 i sold my c-64 and left for Amiga. I got D-paint and my first
    Tracker Programm,i'm not sure if it was "Startracker"?? I can't remember it.
    On Amiga i startet to compose some Tunes and also i tried do make some Graphics.
    Today i have a Pc and my loved Amiga.

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

  • As i was a small child,i started playing some instruments. Today i'm playing
    guitar and that's why i want to make music as i got my Computer. When i was
    found by some People of "Abandon" i started as a musican and Graphican.
    I have made Gfx and Tracker music over Years,but later it was clear,that i
    was more talented in doing Graphics.But i always like it to make music......

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

  • I used Futur Tracker,Digi Tracker,and almost Pro Tracker and for multichannel
    Tunes i used Fast Tracker.I can't remember all tracker Programs,there was
    so many...

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

  • I think there was some nice tunes in my Past and i was happy as i released my
    Music Disk,and there was the Title Music for the Game "Marvins Marvellous
    Adventure" but i think the Time has not come that i can say i have reached my
    Goal. Maybe some day,we will see.....

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

  • I think there was many....:)

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

  • I think the Music is very importand for a Demo or Game.
    If you remember a Game or a Demo,than you remember only Games/Demos
    with the Best music.

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

  • In my last years i always was drawing Gfx,but i will start soon Composing again,
    but for leisure purposes first.

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

  • I think mpeg is a nice Medium and it's not so complicatet to make as to work
    with Tracker Programs.Guitar Tunes was very Complicatet to make with tracker
    Programs and mpeg is a big welcome to people who wants not to work with
    "Small" Samples ....

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

  • Yes.
    Dragon's Funk (Moby) and many more(Arte)
    World of Fantasy (Lizardking)
    When the heavens fall (Purple Motion)
    molecules's Revenge (Jester)
    Always a lot of Virgill's Tunes
    I cant listenig all here,because there are so many.......

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

  • I think not,maybe i will make new tunes,I'm not sure.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • My favorits Bands are Offspring,Rage against The Machine,Limp Bizkit.

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

  • I loved the Amiga/c64 Scene.And without that i never become such a talentet
    one. Thx to all who are still in Scene.......

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

  • Yes Sure,i'm still in Scoopex these days.

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

  • Thx to all for the nice Partys/meetings i had in Scene since i started.
