  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Is it very dull to say that my style adapts to whatever kind of project I work on?

  10. A: I work as hard as I can to bring out the dynamics and feel from everything I take part in.

  12. A: Kristian Fanavoll Tvedt, Lars Harald L. Elnes

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?
