New Track: The Reapers

4. March 2010 14:54 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I’ve spent a good 50 or so hours in the Mass Effect universe; having played the original and the recently released sequel. The music in both games is fantastic.

There’s a particular piece of music in Mass Effect 2 which begins with low brass drones and percussion with snares and anvil strikes. That’s what inspired this piece.

I guess you could call this a tribute to Mass Effect. :)

New Track: Corona

2. March 2010 14:57 by Hamst3r in Tracks

This is the final version of the track that was written on camera below.

It’s still an upbeat jazzy electronic pop thing, only now it has a more dynamic flow and some ideas pulled from Trance. :)

THA Studio Sessions #1 - Corona

1. March 2010 15:12 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey!

I’ve started a series of videos called “THA Studio Sessions” which are about my music writing process. Basically, you can watch me write a track from start to finish. Clearly, not the most exciting thing in the world, but possibly beneficial to those of you wondering how it all goes down.

The first installment of this series is a track codenamed, “Corona”, a sort of upbeat jazzy electronic pop track. The video is about 4 hours and the track is mostly done, only needing some additional mixing and duration added.

New Track: After The Last Sunset

11. February 2010 15:24 by Hamst3r in Tracks

The sun has set for the last time and it will never rise again. Make the most of this bleak situation and enjoy what precious time remains. The end belongs to those who believe the sun will rise again. As the last pocket of heat dissipates and the last plant dies, the stars of distant planets mock us from afar.

This is a piano solo I wrote around the idea of the sun dying and the time spent until the earth dies. :)

First Track of 2010: Nihilist

4. February 2010 15:30 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey!

It’s my first track of 2010! :D

I haven’t felt all that inspired this year so far, but I got “California Dreaming” stuck in my head earlier today, which lead to me having, “The Sound of Silence” stuck in my head as well. Loop 20x Great.

So, I started writing a slow pop folk piano ballad to get it out of my system. What I ended up with is definitely not a pop folk piano ballad. It’s an obnoxious sort of Chiptunes + Film Score + Rock kind of sound. Dunno really. I don’t like to get too crazy over genrefication.

Anyways, check it out:

Enjoy!

P.S. REMIXERS: I’ve put together a remix pack with beatmapped stems, loops and oneshots. Send me some awesome mixes! THA-Nihilist.zip
