My best estimation is that I would have completed this shortly after the CPDP class ended (my computer programming class from the summer of 1996). All songs prior to this were part of the Nucleus “catalog” but aside from the copyright I put in them, there’s nothing to indicate that I was a member of Nucleus at the time. Based on the song quality and comments in songs shortly after the class, I think I probably completed this song just after the class ended, but before I composed anything else for Nucleus. So that would put this right after Willy Universe and right before Echo’s Call Remix.
Now, this was my first song composed in Impulse Tracker, using the IT format. I actually had downloaded Impulse Tracker before Scream Tracker, but only downloaded it for one reason: I wanted to listen to a track of Magus’s Theme from Chrono Trigger, which was in IT format, and MOD4WIN couldn’t play IT. So I downloaded it and listened to the track. Here's an example of the song - it isn't the one I downloaded but it's close to it.
Later, after I had started composing in Scream Tracker, I realized I could do it in Impulse Tracker as well. Without giving much thought to it, I decided to try it out. At the time, I didn’t notice any particular difference since I didn’t really know what instruments were capable of (compared to samples). So, I ended up with this short, low-quality track. And a boasting, over-the-top title.
This could fit right in with the CPDP songs due to its length and quality. The main theme isn’t the worst, but it doesn’t go anywhere. The interlude with the square wave, however, is jarring, out-of-tune, and pointless. Overall, this was one of my more forgettable songs, and while it’s not as bad as Cellular Magnetic, it’s certainly not one that I would demand people to grovel to me over.
