    Date of birth: 1975

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

  • My father was a mathematician. My friends had c64 for playing and often
    played with them 198x.

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

  • I got my first computer c64 as late as 1988, about 2 years I used it mainly for
    programming with basic and assembler. 1990 I bought Amiga 500 and continued
    68000 assembler coding with it. Also found some nice tracker-programs...
    I was computing with amiga about 3-4 years, then I get bored in all something
    to do with computers. Two years ago (1999) I bought a PC, and now coding
    sometimes websites, but no time for doing music etc...

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

  • I did all of those activities. Doing music was also a easy choice because I
    was playing violin many years as a child.

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

  • Different trackers mainly, but sometimes future composer, in which wasn't
    needed digized samples.

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

  • I have never reached my goals (in any areas of life :-). Did I ever even
    finished any modules I did? So, maybe later...

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

  • I'd like to remember something but simply can't :-) Too long time ago...

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

  • I think music is an atmosphere that's affecting on emotions more than other
    arts... without music there is silence, that's like a death. But on the other
    hand, silence and death is important to become feel who you are.

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

  • Only inside my mind sometimes...

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

  • Later there was much more technical limitations to music on computers than
    today, and that's why past time was very special. I think classic
    computermusic was somehow more mentally striking, being like very simple math
    algorithms told as a music... just becoz of tech limitations. BTW personally
    I have never listened/composed techno, I think it's for dancing, not for

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

  • Well... I think some pieces from c64 games/demos and from Amiga by
    Strobo/Stellar & Stargazer/Sonic have been quite cool. Find out Stellar
    website for Strobo's music+gfx!

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

  • --

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Nowadays I am listening to things like "melodic and peaceful" classic music
    and some new age & etno things, ambient.

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

  • It was a very nice time for me; young people from all countries working
    together something very creative and innovative!

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

  • --

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

  • Just howdy to all who remember me. Life is a strange being.
