I learned music from my grandfather when I was 9 years old. I try to learn playing piano by notes but I discovered that it was a lot easier to play without looking at the notes. I moved to Sweden in 1981 because of family changes. My two sisters and my father left back in Finland and sometimes I visit them and they use to visit me too.
My music career started when Amiga 500 was released and when I discovered Soundtracker 1.0, I thought that it was really awesome to make music on the computer at this time. I only play keyboard today, but I also can play a bit guitar.
I met a friend that had an album of Laserdance and I started to like them because noone sounded like them. I was fascinated by the sounds they have aspecially the bass and athmosperic sounds but my favorite sounds was the synthbrass.
My favorite artists are Laserdance, Koto, Rygar. I like the atmosphere and sounds.
A friend of mine also known as Mindwipe knew MindXpander who had contract with Hypersound so it was this way I got in contact with Hypersound for the first time.
Inspiration came from me within and from Laserdance.
I had but those are not released. I like mostly uptempo style.
Most feedback I got from Distant Fantasy and that was really a surprice and nice to see even if I could do a better version of that today. Maybe I do. :)
I think I saw Gustaf Grefberg at some Demoparty in Sweden a long time ago. But I have no contact with him today. David Lilja is my friends friend which I got to know as MindXpander.
No I didn't visit them, I'm aware of those forums and sometimes I visit them.
Yes a bit co-operation, he recorded some of the synth leads in the song.
At that time I used: Clavia Nord modular, Roland Juno1, Roland Juno106, Roland SH-101, Roland JV1080 expanded with dance, ambient, techno cards, Yamaha Digital Mixer board ST1.
Check out www.paralyze.se I add some pictures there later.
It was partly live and partly playback. I composed the song with a little help from Mindwipe. The song was popular after the performance. Many in the school where we performed liked them.
I like both of them, but I have the admit that the feeling of playing an old hardware synth with your fingertips beats any software synth in the world.
I decided to put this name because I was doing so many different types of music and wanted to market the paralyze name because I wanted people to discover the paralyze.se website. I didn't have any more plans than that.
I have made too many Amiga songs and the plan is to some day release many of them but I'm not sure when. The songs are not published yet.
I have not earned so much. The fun of making it keeps me going on.
Timescape Instrumental version. I think I really got an special sound with help of juno 1 filters which make the sound cool in the last part of the song, if you don't mind to say it to myself and when I hear the last melodie in the song I use to think back in the first time when I heard Laserdance, it sounded similar like their melodies.
After that I got married and my music composing had to rest.
I'm currently planning to rebuild my homepage and soon an paralyze.se app is coming into the market, so keep looking for news soon! Sometime in the future I plan to release remakes of my synthesizer songs.
Yes that was the first music video and a second one is still coming.
Well due to my family situation it is difficult right now but you never know, LOL.
Music video 'Infinite' will be released some time in the future. Similar to the Away Mission. Perhaps I release it when I reopen paralyze.se to get some visitors!
I'm reconstructing my studio and it's kinda messy right now, LOL.
Always rhythm first, It would be difficult to make melodie without rhythm, because it sets the tempo of the song. Sometimes I can do melody first but not often.
I haven't made a song for a long time so I have to pass that question.
Good rhythm and strings and a good melody is a good start. I used to start with Laserdance bass sounds and then brasses to get an start.
That is really true, the sound of an analogic synth is so much natural and the filter sounds really better too. But some digital software synths sound really good too.
No I haven't had much time for now.
Some of them are quite good some are mediocre.
For now I'm sadly to say not so active, but I plan to release songs when my app is ready!
To release some old work.
I like to listen mostly to trance music, ah.fm (afterhours.fm)
Yes I think its quite easier to get in contact with other musicians, and to get some credit for what you have done, which is good because that keep you wanting to make so many more tracks.
