Here follows some info about my origins in making music...

I liked a lot listening to music, and using computers, since I was a small child. I took a year of piano lessons, when about 10 years old, but for some reasons I stopped. Later, when 15 years old (1991), I began experimenting with an assisted composition program (as I call it), with which I was able to "paint" notes with a mouse, with the computer facilitating the process in some ways that I now don't remember. Then I discovered that other programs (called "trackers"), while being more difficult to use for me, who had little experience in composition, produced more interesting results, starting from the "quality" of sound. I was using Commodore Amiga computers at that time.

Those days internet was not yet widespread, but I soon discovered the world of BBSs (Bulletin Board Systems), which were computers connected to the phone line, usually set up by amateurs, which usually only a few users could call at once (each visiting user needed a separate phone line at the maintainer's side). I uploaded my works there.

At that time I was known by the alias of Stun, and was active in the so-called demoscene. I joined some groups (chronologically Mystic, Biosynthetic Design and Nah-Kolor) and worked together with designers, programmers and graphic artists to create so-called demos and intros, in other words kind of real-time processed multimedia creations, which aren't simple animations to display on computers, but programs which calculate the effects while watching and listening. To get the idea watch the videos here: www.demoscene.tv (note that this site displays video recordings, not the original programs). You can find some productions of this kind, to which I have participated, on my YouTube channel.

Visit the Aminet website above to download the original tracker music modules. You will need a compatible audio player software (which supports MOD files). Alternatively you can stream some of this tracks from my SoundCloud playlist above (no special software required).
