    Date of birth: 1974 29th Of June

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

  • My mom and dad bought me and my brother a C64 in 1984, and then in
    1986 I bought myself a C128D, and in 1988 I bought a Amiga 500 which I
    remember was so damn cool! :), with the graphics, games, and the music.
    So you could say my interrests for computer started in 1984.

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

  • C64:playing games
    C128D:playing games, did some programming(simple stuff, scrolls and so on)
    A500:Games,swapping, music.
    A600: Games, swapping, some music.
    A1200: Games, swapping, some music.

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

  • I have played drums and piano when I was younger so it was a natural
    thing, then I also come from a musical family, my older brother plays
    the piano, my mom plays the piano, my grandpa(on my mothers side)
    played all kinds of instruments, and all my grandmas brothers played
    all kinds of instruments, so as you can see is it pretty genetic;)

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

  • Protracker, none above that program!.

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

  • None, I'm a competitive person so I'm never pleased, I still dont
    think myself as a musician or a famous ex. scener, but to pick a
    point, I think it must have been "Gerimax"(I think it was called that,
    I remember Henning B did a remix of it, stimmt das Henning, oder?.)

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

  • Alot of tunes :), just because I just can see them as seroius songs as
    the other real musicians have made.

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

  • To give the feeling, music is making us creative as well, and it
    stimulate our cortex where feelings and senses are representive.
    Try to watch horrormovie with out sounds, how scary would that be

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

  • I'm sorry to have to say I'm no longer active in the scene, neither do
    I compose music, but if someone has my songs, make a remix of 'em
    and send them to me, perhaps we can release it again. I also have to
    find a great program to make music with, Fasttracker is great so I
    think I will stick to that until I find a better, if I would start to
    compose music again will say.

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

  • I think they are great, really guys!, you're making a hell of a job!.
    I really hope to see some names in the record buisness soon, 'coz
    if it were'nt for all the modules that have been released I can assure the
    music would'nt have evaluated as it has done, for instance, think about
    Bjorn A Lynne, Virgill Of Sanity, Chromag Of DCS, Soul Of DCS, and all other
    guys(you're too many to count) that do thier own type of
    music, not that ordinary technomusic, what I want to say with that,
    is that cultures have been mixed and a new kind of music have been created,
    that's my theory anyway.

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

  • Cebit '90 by ? of RSI

    Total Triple Trouble by Static Of Rebels

    and then all the songs from Chromag of DCS, Clawz of Complex, Soul Of DCS,
    and Mel o Dee of TheShining, I'm sorry guys, I cant remember the names of
    all the great songs you have made.

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

  • If someone give me an offer, yes, and then would I make seroius music,
    but I would like to make it with someone, so we can mix styles.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • I mostly listen to "chartmusic"(MTVmusic), so mostly dance, soul,
    r n' b.

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

  • Friends, alot of info from other parts of the world, how other people
    live and learn, for instance had I contacts reaching from
    United Arab Emirates all the way to Norway(just teasing guys;)).
    I remember I swapped with a guy that called himself Rod/Polaris(Hi
    Stanjoe!), and that guy lived in Split/Croatia under the Bosnian war, he was
    one of the guys that really got me thinking about becoming a UN-soldier,
    since I could see how close the war was to me allthou I lived in Sweden.

    The scene also gave me the chance to be created with the music, and to do
    something else when I got home from school, to relax with before I did my

    I'm sorry to have to say this, but I have lost my addressbook to you all
    guys that I knew,so if anyone of you guys that I knew sees this, just
    contact me!, and spread my address via email, I rather see that one to many
    get it, than none at all.

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

  • No. I "accidently" got a peak at Nico Barbats site:www.scenet.de so I sent
    Nico a letter since we are old Friends, and I had lost his address, but
    found his email so I could write to him, which is
    great, 'coz I missed the guy ;)(hi Nico:)). So if there are any more guys
    that know me, just contact me, my email is in the www.scenet.de and look
    under "emails" - A(dder) for my emailaddress.

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

  • I wanna greet all my old pals in the scene, but especially
    Karsten Buhm who let me start the Swedish X-Trade, and that Karsten(Scuba of
    X-Trade) made so darn good graphics that we could release and get a name of,
    Karsten if you see this please do contact me, or if anyone who knows a
    person by the name of Karsten Buehm, give him my address!
