When Chris Porter was asked to contribute a track to the IWADON compilation album, he was busy transitioning from being a student at the University Of Michigan-Ann Arbor to moving to Japan. Arraning one of the shorter compositions on the IWADON Tribute Album, the victory theme from Mitsume ga Tooru seemed perfect. He picked up his guitar, picked out the notes and tried out a few different variations before finally settling on this one. The piece was mellowed out, the tempo slowed, harmony and rhythm modified, while keeping the key notes in place.

The musician considers Yasunori Mitsuda his absolute favorite current composer. Other game composers he finds inspiring include Nobuo Uematsu, Hitoshi Sakimoto, Masashi Hamauzu, Junya Nakano, Michiko Naruke, Motoi Sakuraba, Miki Higashino, Takeshi Kobayashi, Martin O'Donnel. Maurice Ravel is his favorite composer of antiquity. Other past musicians he admires include Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Gustav Mahler, J.S. Bach, Wolfgang A. Mozart, Peter Tchaikovsy, Gustav Holst, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Jean Sibelius.

Prior to IWADON, Chris arranged the track "Let's Play in the Orchestra Pit 'Geno'" for Disc One of Heavy Troopa Is Ready to Launch. The compilation included numerous remixes of music from Yoko Shimomura's Super Mario RPG soundtrack.
