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

  • Ahem, back or kinda "late" in the 80's i saw my friends Stavros Fasoulas(*)
    and he was carrying the newest thing with him. Zx81 with 1kb memory. WOOOO!
    t0t4l 0wn4g3 ;) well, after i drooled (after that first shock) about 6 weeks
    around every comp-seller i managed to get my hands on a shiny vic-20. HA! i
    beated him, this has 3kb memory and a module called THE COUNT (tm). well
    after 1 month (yes) vount was finished and then the time to me started. I
    started typoing something in my computers. bleh rest is normal history. vic-20
    (few copied moduls direct to tape), c64 (hacked games (thrashman willy (?)),
    music and poor demos made, first games in ctape (loading 30mins) heeeeeeeeeeh.
    (how in hell we managed it then?), first floppy-turbos "pink floyd", ahem, and
    forbidden forest. (shivers;)). then c128, amiga500, amiga1200 and "shamefully"
    nowadays a sucky winblows pc. O:)

    meaning, you just cant live without it. thought with sfx you can cover it.


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

  • leisure. like 1 song a year. RL is grabbing me :)


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