The starting motive of this piece just popped into my head. I wrote it down and called it “mystery battle”: it sounded like an RPG battle theme, yet mysterious and forboding. I decided to use it for Peoplemon, my project to make a mysterious, forboding version of Pokemon. From there I fashioned it after the complicated Game Boy music from that game’s battle scenes. It is a kooky, complicated piece that sounds like madness, hence the name.
