This was my very first mp3 demo soundtrack, and also first done using Acid 3 (then developed by Sonic Foundry). I used Mel Function’s PC over a couple of session to write the song, for not having a PC of my own at the time. The bassline was recorded from my Yamaha CS01 synth; it’s LFOs didn’t run in sync with the DAW so I timed them roughly with the beat, then chopped up recordings into some loops that about synced with the drums. After Curly Brace showed an early version of the executable (building with the huge pistons / heavy machinery) I wanted to add sth ”industrial” to the song, and then came up with the idea that using a few samples from a cartoon show would be a fun twist to that theme.
