The first time being introduced to a Nintendo 8-bit console, he was amazed by the quirky sounds coming from the soundtracks. He got his first computer when he was 13 years old. A few years later he joined a group of newfound friends who also loved computers, staying up all night, programming and drinking Jolt Cola.
While as the Internet era was seamlessly evolving, he spent much of his time being online dialing up databases (BBS:es) to download files. Among those files were so called .XM .S3M and .MOD modules (Chiptunes) which sounded just as they came from a Nintendo or Commodore 64. It was love at first listen."
"Eric Alexander Bulér Forrest, better known as Zalza, born on March 18, 1982 in Falun, Sweden, is an independent chiptune artist, composer and music producer. Zalza's known in the computer / demo scene in which he has participated as a composer in Cracktros and Chipmusic disks of demo groups such as Razor 1911, Fairlight, TQL, Rebels and Titan.
In 2010, he starred in the Data Airlines release "The Knife - (Data013)" with his cover of The Knife's "We Share Our Mother's Health" and followed up with releasing his first full-length album, "Back To The Chipland". That same year he also was established as a composer of the soundtrack of an Internet phenomenon (Meme) called "2204355 - Awesome Rainbow Chicken Dance" which became Google's Easter Prank in 2010. It featured Zalza's quirky chiptune-interpretation of the soundtrack of the '80s TV series Alf. Soon thereafter he released the single "The Original 2205355 Song (Alf Theme Chip Remix)".
In 2012 he released the "Zalza vs. The World" EP's, a collaboration with renowned chiptune musicians around the world that resulted in three EP-releases and a chipmusic disk which was presented live in Saarbrücken, Germany at the demo party Revision in April 2012."
