The Big A of Phenomena - / -Phenomena Homepage and Amiga emulator page
How did you come up with your alias ?
The fact is that I don't know myself. Sometimes things just happend :)
City / Country:
Falun, Sweden but lives since 2 years back in Stockholm
What was your first computer, and when did you get it?
C64 ... Around 1985-86 i think.
How did you get into the scene and what groups have you been a member of ?
The whole thing started when I'we got my A1000 in 1987. With some disk
swapping I started to make friends around Sweden. And one guy
called Megaman (Andreas Tadic, who made Project-X and Alien Breed) and I
started Crack Force Five. After A while we merged together with The Gang and
Jetspeed and formed TRiANGLE Amiga (not to be mixed up with trinagle
c64). So the years passed by and we made 3 megademos (gigademos) but the
big bang came when the new group Phenomena asked us if we could join their
forces. With some struggle the best members from triangle joined
Phenomena and now the demo industry was in full effect.
What was the proudest moment in your career ?
The demo competitions, I'we never been so nervous like when the
deadline was approching.
For what specific reason(s) do you think that you are remembered ?
Don't much people know me, I was often in the background making
track loaders, spread the demos and organize the group.
What made you stop the scene activity ? (and do you remember when?)
I quit the computer scene in 1991-92. I was tired and wanted to live
a normal life with cars and girls.
Thinking back on the good old days, is there anything you regret?
Well, making so lousy demo parts, I'we should have been better.
But maby coding wasn't my strong side, I liked the organizing part
