An Interview with Neil Brennan

Not much came out of Australia game wise. If you can come up with more than an handful of publishers then you certainly know your stuff. There was one company that managed to break the curve and hell what a company it was. Melbourne House along with the developing arm of Beam Software was well regarded as a company that delivered quality games. The Hobbit, Castle of Terror, Way of the exploading fist were just some of many great games to come from this legendary company and with a great company came a great musician, Neil Brennan. Neil has kindly taken time to have a chat with us about his time as a musician, a game composer, and a computer programmer.

An Interview With Warren Pilkington (2020 Edition)

Warren Pilkington (Waz) has been involved with the c64 scene for decades in various ways. He's provided content for several magazines. He's a former member of HVSC and has ripped many c64 SID's for the cause. He's also an accomplished sid musician. Yet, he often goes under the radar due to his humbleness. In this Interview I've enlisted the help from well known contacts. LaLa, Dan Gilgrass, Barry Thompsn (Tomsk), Peter Clarke and myself fire away the questions in extraordinary in depth interview.

"SID Chip Club" - An In-Depth Discussion About the Album and About the LMan Behind It

After a highly successful Kickstarter LMan has recently published a new album called SID Chip Club.

An Interview with Martin Galway by Claudio Sánchez

by Claudio Sánchez

Hello, I'm Claudio Sánchez, member of the forum of Lemon641, a site dedicated to the Commodore 64, one of the most known computers in Europe and USA in the eighties. Also, webmaster of The C64 Inventory2, a site with the goal of having an inventory of all existing C64s around the world. In both places you will find me as Tokafondo.

Here we have an interview with a C64 music legend, Martin Galway. He is one of the most known music composers for that machine. His work is seen in many games for that machine, and today in modern PC games like some titles of the Wing Commander series. Today he is working for Digital Anvil, a company that has a deal with Microsoft for producing games under that company's seal. After reading a lot of them available in many sites, and seeing that most of them have the same questions, I tried to have a different approach to the life and work of this man, whose name is one of the first that arises when people talk about C64 music.

An Interview with Bastian (Interview by Bart Ten Brinke)

by Bart Ten Brinke

Whilst I was looking at ever bigger getting interviews section of Remix64, it struck me that nobody had yet interviewed my favourite SID artist: Bastian. And since Bastian is one of the few artists who is actually making Commodore-ish songs that apear in the hitparades, I decided it was definately time to do an interview with him! And after a lot of e-mails back and forth, this is the result 😊
