    Date of birth: 7.2.1986

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

  • My parents bought a computer the same year I was born (1986), so I've lived my
    whole life with computers.

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

  • Like washing machines? Nah, I've always been a PC-user, but I've also a C64 and
    an Amiga, but I don't have any drives for C64 and the Amiga's floppy drive
    doesn't work...

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

  • My dad plays almost all the possible instruments and my oldest brother is a good
    musician too, so I think my choice was quite obvius. I'm interested in drawing and
    coding, too, but not even close as much as in making music.

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

  • 1993 Scream Tracker II (I think...)
    1994-1997 Scream Tracker III
    1998-? Impulse Tracker II

    I'm not so sure about those years... It was so long time ago.

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

  • None of them. You can always make something better.

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

  • I don't release songs I don't want to remeber. But I'm not saying I haven't
    made any mods I don't like...

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

  • You don't do anything with a game/demo that has bad musics and you don't do
    anything with good musics in a bad game/demo. That's my opinion.

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

  • Yes, I'm, if you really want to call it 'composing'. I mainly make music for
    leisure purposes but also sometimes for small freeware and shareware games.
    I'm also interested in making music for demos.

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

  • I prefer mods more.

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

  • Purple Motion's and Skaven's all songs.
    Lizardking - Desert Dawn
    Bruno - Uralvolga
    Ukulele - niinsoma sunlight
    Dune - Sonni (from Caero)
    Heatbeat - Action-1
    Jester - Stardust Memories
    Groo - Abiturientti etc.
    The list is endless.

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

  • I'm currently making a song for a cd. It'll include all kinds of funky stuff
    from various Finnish trackers. We're making it just for fun. I don't have any
    interests to make a real commenrial cd.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Not much... Absuoluuttinen nollapiste, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Ozric Tentacles,
    YUP, Lasse Mårtenson and some others.

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

  • C64 scene didn't really give me anything, because I'm too young for that, but I like to
    listen to SIDs sometimes. Maybe I'll start making them someday... Amiga scene means a
    lot more to me. Many of my idols are/were in the Amiga scene.

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

  • I haven't even started yet :)

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

  • Hellos to the whole TPP crew and the people at my favourite IRC-channel.
    Also big hails to my idols and especially to my brother. Without them you
    wouldn't be reading this right now...
