New Track: Sthaga

9. August 2015 15:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

You know what I like? The music of 1997. Big Beat. Some of my favorite albums were released that year. The Prodigy's Fat of the Land, The Crystal Method's Vegas, The Chemical Brothers' Dig Your Own Hole.

Well, this new track is inspired by all that sort of stuff. Big Beat mixed with Indian sounds and themes. I tried to find a good mix between acoustic instruments and synths, so that the track wouldn't be dominated by either one.

New Track: Riders of Vengeance

22. July 2015 21:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Cowboys. Outlaws. Bandits. Gunslingers. Bounty Hunters. Rustlers. You know what I'm talking about. The Frontier. The Wild West. The Buttery Convocation. Okay, maybe not that last one.

Anyway, I like Westerns. I like Spaghetti Westerns. I like the iconic imagery evocative of the lawless western frontier. The Western setting has always been one I've enjoyed in film and music. The sound of the west is magical. "Riders of Vengeance" is my latest foray into that sound space.

Previous excursions include "Lonestar" and "The Stranger", both available on the music page of this site.

New Track: Lies The Trapper

11. June 2015 07:01 by Hamst3r in Tracks

In wait lies the trapper. Patient. Focused. Animal. A little metal ditty in the vein of some of my favorite weirdo bands, namely Mr.Bungle and Dog Fashion Disco. I like that sort of stuff, and I have occasionally pulled inspiration from that genre in the past, but I've never really done a whole track in that style.

Well, here you go. Metal + trumpets, saxophones, cuicas, bossa nova rhythms, sudden change-ups to smooth jazz, tuvan throat singing, and other such nonsense. Hopefully such sonic vacillation tickles you as much as it does me.

Music for the iOS game Treads!

25. May 2015 12:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

So, there's this game you can play on your iPhone - and probably your iPad too - assuming you have an iPhone or an iPad. It's called Treads. In it, you are tasked with simultaneously driving a tank and manipulating it's turret. There is much shooting, exploding and crushing.

While you traverse and perpetuate this horrific pixelated battlefield though, you get to listen to some bumpin' tunes. Hamst3r tunes! Stuff with big orchestrations, big booms, rippin' guitars, chiptune noises, electro synths, impact wrenches, tuned servos and all manner of noises.


I made three tracks for the game, but I only think these two are really worth posting, being the main level music and the upgrade garage music. The menu screen music is just a couple looping chords and and not much else. These though, these are some bangers.


Go check out Treads for yourself, it's fun:

New Track: Bullet Hell

16. July 2014 23:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

pew pew pew! Bullets! Everywhere! Far too many bullets! It's like some sort of bullet hell in here or something!

This is my take on that particular style of Fast Rock plus Orchestral plus Electronic mixture so often used in anime and anime-themed video games. Blasting along at 180 BPM, this track features a set of 4 main guitars with even more secondary guitars on top. Lots of guitars. Yet, there's still room for drums, lead synthesizers and various types of string and brass instruments. Oh and some harpsichord, piano and epic choir as well. Gotta make use of all those silly sound libraries I have of people shouting. Lastly, there's also a bit of Super Meat Boy in there too. Anyway, best to let the music speak for itself...
