Thomas Egeskov Petersen - Laxity (Kethrens)???

Post by Wendell » Thu, 15. Jul 04, 15:26

Hello,

Just looking through the X2 music track and it mentions Thomas Egeskov Petersen. Doing a search for Thomas Egeskov Petersen mentions Laxity beside the name. Is this the same Laxity that used to do the music for a group called Kethrens in the old amiga demo days?

He may even be a contributor on here (you cant tell with the names etc) but if not then I'm sure one of the admins like Steel or BurnIt! could answer the question.

He is also called PetersOn somewhere in the credits or in the manual. But since Egeskov sounds rather Danish, PetersEn is probably correct.

Another bug, I suppose.

He is a forum member. He hasn't posted, but he's been around occasionally. Here is his Profile if you want to send him a PM.

The other music composer is Alexei Z.. He is around a little more often and has his own website, here.

Cheers CBJ. I've sent him a message - by the sounds of it it will take a while to get a reply :)

To clear it all up. Most of the music for X-BTF and X-Tension are done by a Danish guy called: Thomas Egeskov PETERSEN. Thomas' nickname is Laxity, but he is NOT the Laxity from the former Amiga demo group, Keferns.
Thomas Egeskov Petersen came up with that nick back in the C64 days where he was a member of different demo groups like: Wizax, 2000AD just to mention a few ones he joined. He is known for his awesome contribution of SID music and have done lots of demo and games music on all kind of platforms over the many years.

How do I know this? Thomas is a good friend of mine, and I was the one who hired him for doing the music for X-BTF and X-Tension back when I worked on those titles.

PS. Thomas also did some of the music for X2.

If he did the music in xbtf, I really wish egosoft would hire him to do more music for x4. Probably they won't and just use Alexei which he is good at music for sure but Thomas's music IMO is more favourable to my ears. Still can't get xbtf main menu music out of my head. :lol:
