The construction of goatrance in the 90s and studio setups fascinates me.
One small bit of info on the net is your quote in The Local Scenes and Global Culture of Psytrance book. Could you expand? Did you have a typical writing / workflow process for trance tunes?
How important was having the sampler do melodic duties?
And could you talk about the importance of the Kurzweil k2000?
Did / do you prefer writing a tune with a synth per track? Any tips for writing a track with less than one synth per track and layering it to write a tune?
Multitracking was somewhat rare for 90s goa no?

I've not heard of The Local Scenes and Global Culture of Psytrance book, so I have no idea what they quoted. Can you point me to it?
My dabbling with Psy-Trance was brief and half-hearted. I was fascinated with it as an art form from 1994 to about 1996 but after that my interest waned quite quickly. You'd be better off asking somebody who was better at it than me.
Hello Ott! Are you more of a coffee or a tea guy? Do you experience negative consequences of being overcaffeinated? I just freaking love coffee myself, but not sure if it significantly affects my mind and perception in negative ways. It's possibly the last addiction I cannot beat and cost/return ratio is so blurry to me that I need an external advice from a man I cannot respect more.Ott responded on 11/24/2019 Next question
When performing on stage, have you ever felt tempted to 'go full rock star' and smash all the musical instruments ?Ott responded on 11/24/2019
