Interview with Salami / Nothing ^ Ethos9

Cremax/Nothing


1. Can you tell us about you and your group?

A: Well, I'm very busy at the moment, working on a sample gen which uses mxmplay.. Well, it works but sounds quite lame :> I'm also quite interested in surface contouring.. My group.. well, i'm in nothing, probably still in ethos9, well.. I really don't care about names.. :>


2. What do you think about the progress nowadays in the demoscene?

A: Hmm, it's getting much better, I think the biggest progress was since tbl released jizz. Also win32 rocks, the tbl guys show that in a few years when noone remembers what dos was the scene still may exist.. win32 intros/demos rule!


3. Do you think 3D is making a better scene or boring one?

A: Hmm 3d is nice, you can learn and learn and learn, forget what you've learnt and do it much better, you can't stop optimizing, well I love it.


4. What do you think about making demos under windows?

A: Ohh.. I love them! Look above :>


5. What platform you think supports the demoscene better? Do you think DOS will survive?

A: No, dos was cool, but hmm it's a waste for the new hardware, also you can't support all soundcards..


6. What you think about hardware "support" on demos?

A: Hmm.. 3dfx demos get more interesting, since 3dfx released the voodoo2.


7. Which is/was your favourite party (if you attended one)?

A: The Party 6.


8. What is your favourite demo?

A: supertelevision.


9. Would you want to contribute to the demoscene with anything?

A: Yeah! :> Be prepared.


10. What do you think about diskmags?

A: Well.. The articles get worse and worse.. Hugi11 will get cool.. Be sure to check it out :>


11. Are diskmags still necessary?

A: Yeah.. for those dudes who can't be every day on irc to get the latest news.


12. What do you think about other media like irc, newsgroups, online-mags?

A: IRC, hmm it's ok.. But too many splits, nukers, warez, porn (ohh, did I say porn lammas?? Hehe.. Okay, forgot this word:) lammas.


13. What groups do you consider "well-known" and in some way contributed to the scene?

A: Orange, Cubic, Doomsday, Triton, CNCD, Dubius.. puhh hmm.. many more.


14. When do you think to release a new demo from your group? (we would like to know :)

A: Ohh, I hope for Wired.. Well, depends on the other lazy bones.


15. One last question, what are your favourite music bands? ;)

A: Bands? Ohh.. well.. I like ltj bukem, sven všth.. Well, I'm tired..
