Then started writing music using Cubase and now hacks around with Reason, Acid, Renoise and whatever makes a nice bleep. He loves all electronic music because it pushes the boundries of what people think music is.


Why F8?

F8 is the name chosen after migrating from using the name U4ia. He used to write music on an Amiga years ago. Its just fate. You can’t change fate.

    Jim - do you remember an old track called take a trip from me? It was used in a PD Amiga game called Scavenge - great game... great track... I'm trying to find the game (full version) and have a facebook page for it (Scavenge Amiga) - I wondered if you had a memories of writing the track I could add to my page? - peter
