Christoph Thür (Ovelin) – Interview (Part 2)

The second part of the interview I conducted with Christoph Thür from Ovelin, the creators of the super-cool WildChords for iPad. You can read the first part of this interview here. And this is my review of WildChords. Enjoy, and share!




When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I always loved those evenings at the scout summer camp where we were singing next to  the fire. I think the first album I bought with my own money was Keep the Faith from Bon Jovi.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

No, I am still a total guitar beginner. Though improving fast now that I play with our own game. Once I performed in Sweden in front of 700 people or so, and the audience went wild! Admittedly, it was at a conference, and the people cheered for the game, not my guitar skills. Still, I felt a bit like a rock star!

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

Amongst my favorite bands are The Ark (SWE), Poutatorvi (FI) and Absolution (CH). At home I usually listen to Radio paradise, and when on my own, I listen to heavy metal music.
