companies to accelerate the use of audio and music in computers.

I was desperate really for people not to accuse me of coldness.
It was taboo.
- Thomas Dolby

I started looking at small companies that were running
a sort of virtual reality cottage industry:
I had imagined that I would just put on a helmet and be somewhere else -
that's your dream of what it's going to be.
- Thomas Dolby

At the same time, one of the things I noticed was that
the moment there was any kind of audio attached to virtual reality,
it really improved the experience, even though the
audio didn't feel like a sound engineer or composer
had been anywhere near it.
- Thomas Dolby

The other thing I felt was that the philosophical concept
behind the experiences also looked like it had been
designed by technicians and not by entertainers.
I felt I needed to grab hold of it and try and push
the envelope as much as I possibly could right now.
- Thomas Dolby

Then I have a head mounted display which actually was
designed for the military to do synchronized building
entries and that's looking down at my hands,
so projected on the big screen behind me,
you can see my hands as I'm putting the tracks together.
- Thomas Dolby

I was very pleased to find that once I had records
out music videos were starting to happen,
so I directed some of my own music videos and got to
experiment in other areas of expression.

It was supposed to be a year or two just to refresh my batteries,
but I moved to Silicon Valley in the early 90's,
and one thing let to another, got very involved in high tech,
and formed a company and it ended up doing pretty well.
- Thomas Dolby

The hardware manufacturers, game designers,
cable companies and computer companies and,
in fact, film studios are going to ensure that this thing marches on.
They know that they are going to make an enormous amount of money from it.
- Thomas Dolby

From a technical point of view, there seemed to me
to be absolutely no reason why -
with the existing technology -
we couldn't do very high quality audio,
because whereas the boom in digital graphics is ongoing,
the boom in digital audio has already happened.
- Thomas Dolby

So I'll set a cycle in motion and pop it into record
and I'll lay down a drum pattern,
a bass line, a keyboard and guitar part,
and once the groove is going I launch into the song
and sing my song over the top.
- Thomas Dolby

- Thomas Fuller PHOTO

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...
They offer sufficient proof that everything
can be taken from a man but one thing:
to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
