This, along with Drum Solo, was one of my final Nucleus tracks (Nucleus Software was the group I was a member of which did coding, art, and music projects, all organized on our local BBS, R-Squared). After this, I would create a music-specific division of Nucleus called Quasar, which I’ll have more to say about when I do a write-up on Flight Through the Clouds.
This was my second track composed in Impulse Tracker format. After this, I stuck with IT (the tracker) for good, though I did compose maybe a half-dozen more songs in S3M format.
Unlike Drum Solo, this song is actually reasonably good - probably the cleanest-sounding track I had made at the time, and one of the first times I made somewhat effective use of percussion. I’d go so far as to say this was probably my best song at the time I wrote it, though I would very quickly surpass it. The limited sample set most likely came from Subliminal’s songs (the guitars were from Burning <8:15> Subliminal), though the percussion (namely the snare) may have come from Pinion’s + Positive Force -> -pn.
Though not my first IT track (the first was Here Am I! Now Grovel!), it was the first time I discovered how to use some of its features, namely the Note Off command and New Note Actions. I took advantage of this with the lead.
The song structure itself is very simple. A drum intro, lead-in with guitar, and then the main sequence, which I repeat twice, and then bring the song to a conclusion. I feel like the guitar intro may have been an imitation of another song I listened to at the time, but I don’t remember which one (probably one by Subliminal that is not on the mod archive).
Overall, it’s to-the-point, simple, and reasonably good given my scant experience. Comparing this to my earliest Nucleus songs - CP/DP, Cellular Magnetic, Aquatic Jive, and the aforementioned Here I Am! Now Grovel!, it was clear that I had learned a lot in just a few short months.
