  • Q: "Is your music commercially available?"
  • A: "Some of my work is available for download on this site for free. The main reason for producing this music is that I am enjoying it - or, more exactly,  that I feel 'I have to let it out' (sometimes enjoyable, more often quite a painful ct). So I don't intend to make any profit with it. If someone out there likes my stuff, I am glad. If not - so what? I would have done it anyway. If you are interested in particular releases that are not available for download, just drop me a line."

  • Q: "What equipment are you using?"
  • A: "I started with a MOD Tracker on a PC in 1992 Then, in 1994, came the Sound Blaster AWE/32... bla bla bla... boring. My oldest mate is my Yamaha CS1x which I bought in 1997. I've been using Korg M1, Waldorf MicroQ, Roland MC-303 and several other pieces of hardware before I almost completely virtualized my studio back in 2004. So today I'm a heavy user of VST instruments. My master keyboard is a Yamaha CS6x. For programming,  I utilize a small master keyboard, the Arturia Analog Experience. For acoustic recordings, I use a Beringer small membrane microphone. Furthermore, I'm guilty of stealing various samples from numerous sources."
