Trying to find Andreas Spreen

Hi everyone, I hope it's ok to post this here. I am trying to find Andreas Spreen who wrote Space Taxi 3 in 1994. I want to sample the title screen music and would like to ask permission before I do. If anyone knows him and could perhaps put me in contact, please let me know and I can give you contact details to pass on. Thanks in advance!

Plan B:
Just use it and if he minds, HE will find YOU

well to be honest the game was written in 1994, and I'm a nobody, so he probably won't care if I use it, but I want to ask anyway out of politeness. If I can't find him I will probably use it and hope that in the unlikely event that he somehow hears it he would be happy about it, but I feel like I should make every effort to ask him first!

A quick google has found a few of his mods seem to be freely available so I can’t see a problem to be honest.

Just remember to give credit where credit is due. It's not just the authors that demand it, the audience also likes to know where creativity came from.

I found this interview to the composer

http://amp.dascene.net/detail.php?vi...tail=interview

In the end there's a link, perhaps it can be used to contact him

thank you all for the links, sadly I haven't been able to find him yet despite contacting every Andreas Spreen I could find and trying all of the links posted (none of the contact details on any of the pages worked). I am going to post on Reddit as a last resort as the track is done and ready to go out, and I would love to give him the opportunity to hear what I have done with his work
