Profile

January 16th, 2021.

Under the dark grey cloud that fills out the sky, a curtain of snow covers the town, frozen in a semi-lockdown-to-be-turned-soon-into-a-full-one-quite-soon by a barabaric virus called Sars-CoV-2, that changed our lives from it's already not always as happy as I expected it to be everyday life into a bad, long-haul remake of Contagion,Outbreak or World war Z.

I'm sitting in front of my computer, out of inspiration.
My fuel for inspiration is hope... what hope is there in such a situation ?
My eyes wander pointlessly on my keyboard. They vaguely stare at the dot, then they more or less focus on the M, followed by the O and the D.

Suddenly, my mind starts associating all those elements. A dot, an M, an O and a D, this gives us... .MOD ! .MOD . The good old 4-channels Amiga module file extension !

As soon as that idea reaches it's way into my brain, it unleashes a tsunami of memories, taking me back to the past to those wonderful teenage - early 20s years, a time full of life, colors, friends, love, hope, and lotsa music. A time painted with summer sunlight shining on a world made of not-yet dead dreams, a time I felt...
Oh no... it was a time I felt...
...I felt alive...

As nostalgia takes over, fantastic melodies break free from the cells my soul locked them in. The second after, my head turns to the right, staring at the old drawer where a pile of old backup-DVDs are gathering dust. The drawer has a notice on it : Tracked works, 1994-2004.

Immediately, I stand up and reach out to that drawer. Inside of it, the DVDs that contains all the quintessence of those magic years.

Almost in tears, I remember those days when I used to be know as Toal Nkor before changing my nickname into it's shorter form, TNK, as the previous one was definitely too long, a time a beautiful green-eyed brunette called Corinne made my days shine. A time I wish I could go back to...

Unfortunately, my only hope to get a bit closer to those golden years is to open up my archives and upload all the previously unreleased material, or the released stuff that didn't make it to that modarchive.org.

That's my decision of today. No more "No spread" folder. I'm opening up my archives... and thus my heart !

Have fun with my oldies !




What did I become since those days ?

Almost twenty years passed since I composed most of the stuff that will be released here were composed. Sometimes even more. For sure many things changed in my life since those days.

I don't do much music anymore. Altough I composed until recently (using Cakewalk's Sonar X3 + lotsa VST intruments), I finally noticed that well... you have to be young to be accepted as a musician. I was back then, but the magic of youth has that nasty tendency to vanish over the years...

...so nowadays, I express myself more as a photographer (galleries here and there), and since 2019 as a novelist, since I published my first novel called C'est arrivé en avril ("It happened in april"), a sci-fi novel full of explosions, chases, mysteries, conspiracies, and maybe some aliens lurking here and there... unfortunately, it's only available in french (shall you know a publisher who'ld like to translate it and publish in in some non-french speaking countries, feel free to contact me).

More novels are expected in the upcoming years. Three more are already written, I'm working on the fifth one (A techno-thriller called Le protocole Belenos ("The Belenos protocol")).




Don't try to mail to the old addresses published in the 90s, or you'll have to wait for more than a life to get your answer...

To reach me in the 2020's, you can get in touch :

- Via my Facebook profile.
- Via my Author website.
- Via my Photography site.
- ...or on my Twitter account.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !
