virgill/jester over "vite and plack"

category: general [glöplog]
Hi all. I was reading a long-ago interview with Virgill that referred a very large falling out between him and Jester over the soundtrack to "Interference". Can anyone tell me what exactly happened?

Vigill rules, Jester sucks

No, I was just kidding. As long as I know, they always had quarrels about their surnames. Jochen kept calling Volker "Tripper", while Volker kept calling Jochen "Feldköter".

Virgill does music whereas Jester put some sounds side by side.

Well, people you are too much hard, Jester did some of the greatest "Amiga demo anthems", like the great music from Sanity's "World of Commodore" :)

YES, I know it's doskpopish-styled, and so much amigademosong oriented, but I think Jester's song was good too :)

Btw, I'm an ENORMOUS^BIG^FAN of "Interference" song :D

jester was good! virgill was and still is one of the very top composers the scene has ever seen (nice word play).. bar none. it´s not even arguable :)

I'm afraid nothing can beat Firefox & Tip music from Enigma demo by Phenomena :')

Enigma (or hyperbased), Stardust Memories (i'd like to pick f.ex Cyberride though as those two tunes are quite similar) and Vite and Plack are all great but Virgill is the only one of those that still keeps doing great (scene) stuff...

(*still waiting for the Enigma remix by FF that was promised to come out ;)*)

About the Enigma remix there's some good stuff in it

back then, I think it was just rivalry between two musical masterminds.

Please get Herr Tripper back to the scene! Anyone has his number?
I bet he´s still doing music...
One funny anecdote is that we both had the same telephone number back in the days. 14692. Just an other pre-number for the city we lived in. Ibbenbueren VS Bocholt. Coincidence or fate ?

btw, what am i missing? wasn't jester the guy who wanted to make #thescene all cool? did he do music too? is that special?
added on the 2008-08-30 22:25:15 by skrebbel skrebbel

skrebbel, the #thescene jester was someone else. (go backwards 15-18 years in demoscene history and you know what they´re talking about) /me wonders what all the fuzz is all about here ?
added on the 2008-08-30 22:29:53 by Virgill Virgill
yeah i don't get it either. i was just going to post a "so this is the official 'lets bash jester' thread?" when people started to post that jester is ok too :)

difficult! im too young for this

Virgill, thank you for remembering me that I'm getting old ;) Damn we've been more or less here since 1991 ...

yeah, get those "sound engineers from the 70s" in here :)

I bought the first Oddjob tape and I still have it!

@chromag: you mean the "minimal art" tape? :) an antique rarity, that´s for sure!

@sxrebbel: you don´t know jester? he´s responsible for soundtracks like this:
shame on you! ;)

btw. hi to dr.headcrash & dr.albarns :)

There's no denying, Jester was an incredible musician! His Elysium mod was particularly outstanding. Even if you didn't like his style, you had to admire his soundtracker skills. I never cared much for his Oddjob stuff, however.

Of course, Virgill is better, but that's because he is also incredible. :)

jester ftw :) Elysium and Flowerpower are just 2 great modules of him.
