The author was born in Transylvania, Romania in 1971, as a member of the large Hungarian minority there. Grew up during Ceausescu’s dictatorship, having spent the first 18 years of his life in a society shaped by the Communist regime.
His home town, Marosvasarhely (or Tirgu Mures in Romanian), provided the childhood decorum - and it was among the first cities, where the 1989 Revolution swept through, before it crossed the Carpathian mountains and ignited the capital. After the Revolution, it was the scene of the ethnic pogrom organised by the extreme right.
The author graduated from high-school just after that pogrom, and in summer 1990 started his University studies during which he published, in both Hungarian & Romanian languages, series of articles and essays on electronic music and multimedia arts. Later obtained his PhD in the UK, where he has been working since.
