Biography

Czech Republic (1986 – present)

František Fuka aka FUXOFT
nationality: Czech Republic
homepage: http://www.fuxoft.cz netlabel: http://amenorea.c8.com

In 1986, when Spectrum 128 became available, I started experimenting with computer music (“computer music” back then meant “something sounding almost as good as the oldest Kraftwerk stuff, but in mono”). This carried on into my work with other computers: Namely Commodore Amiga, SAM Coupe, plus other machines here and there. You can get all my music for Spectrum’s AY8192 chip (the same that was in the old Atari ST) from this archive (the player for Windows is included). If you don’t remember those times, you probably won’t be physically able to endure the sound, but remember that this was cutting edge stuff. I basically created my own interpreted programming language for storing music (it had loops, subroutines, variables etc.). Recently, I also created some remixes of old 8-bit tunes using rather nice FL Studio music tool. You can get the remixes here. The fact that these remixes usually started by rendering 2000 bytes of original music file into 50,000,000 bytes of samples (and manipulating those) is rather ironic.

As anyone interested in computers, I also became interested in BBSs (bulletin board systems) and later the Internet. Even today, I work on several websites (for example, I am one of the founders of www.kompost.cz no-brow humor site). But, as you can see from the page you are currently reading, it would be a stretch to also call me “web designer”.
