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

  • As my father work with computers, we've "always" had computers at home. And
    my grandfather also had an Sinclair ZX-81 (with 16 KB of RAM!!) that I could
    borrow. It must have been around 1980.

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

  • In the early 80's we had some IBMs and IBM clones (Columbia, Osborne etc.).
    Bought a C64 in '85 and an Amiga 500 in '87. Still got them both with all
    accessories, and they actually work!

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

  • I have played organ/keyboard since the age of 8, so.. combined with my
    interest for computers... what could be more natural?

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

  • Always used some tracker. Sound/Protracker. The last one I used was
    Protracker 3.

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

  • Propably "Daisy Chain". I belive it was my first "hit".

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

  • Isn't there always? Well.... I've always made music for myself, music that I
    like, so... not really.

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

  • In the first demos made on the amiga/64, it only was there to have some music.
    But in the later demos, it kinda tied the parts of the demo together. In a
    game, it is the part that really makes the atmosphere come out. I just HAVE
    to mention the music in "Donkey Kong Country" on the SNES. Especially the
    "underwater theme".... ahhhh... just love it.

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

  • Not active now. Hopefully I'll make some music soon. Bought a keyboard 2
    years ago, to learn how to do midi music, but I haven't done anything with
    it yet. But sooooooon... :)

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

  • Haven't heard much of the "scene" music, but from what I've heard it's the
    same as always.... 80% *blargh* and the 20% of music worth listening to...

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

  • Oh.. there are so many, but here are some (Scenemusic only):
    Ice (All three by Walkman/IT & CRB)
    Vertical Sex (B.i.T/CFX)
    City At Night (4-Mat/Anarchy)
    Anette (Heatbeat)
    Madness Took Me (Uncle Tom)
    and the list goes on and on....

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

  • Haven't even thought about it, but now that you mention it... :)

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Whoa... everything, but at the time of writing in my cd changer:
    Burlap To Cashmere
    Dollie DeLuxe (Norwegian Artist)
    Dave Mattews Band
    Bjørn Eidsvåg (Norwegian Artist)
    Skunk Anansie
    Richard Wagner

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

  • Friends. Friendship that has lasted till now, and I guess will last till I die.

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

  • Nope. But Ulf (Jackmix/Cryptoburners) and I actually attendend "The Gathering"
    in the easter of 2001. There has been some talk about starting up Cryptoburners
    again, and that would have been fun.

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

  • It would have been fun to hear from some of the dudes I swapped with 10
    years ago, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake - Germany
    Marcin Dudar - Poland (Don't remember his nickname)
