I became acquainted with eletronic music as a child listening to artists like Jean Michel Jarre or Vangelis. It was through electronic, techno, trance and listening to Hallucinogen's "Twisted" album that I discovered psychedelic trance. Hallucinogen, S.U.N. Project, Space Tribe, Pleiadians - these were my beginnings in psychedelic sounds.
Creating music… I took my first steps on an Amiga computer using tracker type programs - protracker, digibooster. As an Amiga owner I was known as "Timer" on the so called Amiga Scene. Writing music on only a few channels was quite a challenge. It was not until I switched to a PC that I felt the power and possibilities of creating music provided by programs. Creating sounds in real time + effects in real time was what I had been lacking with my Amiga. I started writing psytrance right after discovering this genre, because I had always liked trance. I prefer Goa-trance, I love melodies and to me it is the part that has meaning and is capable of staying in the listener's memory. That is why I pay so much attention to this element. Some of my pieces were inspired by Hallucinogen's works, and he himself continues to inspire me to this day.
I decided to invest in equipment in order to improve the process of production and the quality of the sound. Currently, I have the following hardware: a PC + ESI Duafire, Alesis M1 active MK II, M-Audio Evolution MK-449C, BCR 2000, Waldorf Blofeld.
