There's not too much to say about this track, except that it is mostly experimental. The track was actually completed in 1994, but some of the ideas in it were written in early 1993 when I was still in high school jazz band. We played a few rock and latin tunes during those years, so you could say the influence for this track stemmed from that.
Technically, this is one of my earlier attempts to layer instruments in order to create a "more than 4 channels" sound.
The trumpet chords were made by loading the trumpet instrument from Deluxe Music into MED and using it to play a "chord track" which was recorded to an audio cassette. The audio cassette was sampled back into MED and each chord was cropped out and looped manually. This same technique was used to create the mixed bass & piano instrument.
It was alot of work, but it was an effective way to thicken the sound of a 4 channel MOD.
