New Track: Ocean

21. November 2009 15:33 by Hamst3r in Tracks

It’s been a while – a few months since the last track – but now I’m back with some uplifting chillout for that ass. So sit your keister down and relax, cause it’s about to get fed some zen.

The overall tone of this track is airy and light. The track is lead by the traditional Indian combo of Sitar and Tabla, resting on top of a hip hop beat, a simple bass guitar and several layers of ambience. Also within the mix are Russian vocals sung by my friend Larissa.

Anyways, check it out:

New Track: Three Square Meals of Stale Regrets

19. September 2009 15:35 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Do you remember the film The Italian Job? I’m talking about the 2003 remake, not the 1969 original. More specifically, do you remember the style of music it had?

Well, this is kind of like that. It’s orchestral film score style stuff with Middle East, Spanish and Jazz influences. There’s also a touch of electronic music in there too.

A strings ensemble, upright bass, horn and acoustic guitar alongside synths and clicky electronic drums.

New Track: Defense Mechanisms

14. September 2009 15:36 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey, got some new epic-sounding stuff here. This track is a continuation of the ideas I expressed in the tracks, “Chaos out of Nothingness” and “Ablation Cascade”.

There’s a moody cinematic quality to it all with influences being pulled from industrial and film score. The track is mostly comprised of synth drones, dissonant noise and drums. There’s also a piano, some strings and brass to balance it all out.

New Track: Influence of Mind

4. September 2009 15:38 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Influence Of Mind takes a little trip into Psychedelic Rock territory. Basically, I’ve taken some ideas from Pink Floyd and regurgitated them into my own thing. There are some other influences in there too, but whatever, you’ll notice the Floyd. :P

New Track: Astral Projection

24. August 2009 15:39 by Hamst3r in Tracks

This tune is a big change of pace from the last track. Where the last one was slow and somber, this one is upbeat and carefree sounding.

It was also written while people were watching via a live video stream. I’m going to be doing this more often, so if you’d like to see what goes on behind the scenes when I’m making a track, check out the live stream page HERE.

To find out when I’m broadcasting, follow or friend me on Twitter, Myspace, Facebook or Friendfeed. I’ll post a link when I start and then post the MP3 when I’m done.

I’ll also be uploading recorded bits of the video to Youtube after the live feed, for anyone who missed out. :)

Anyways, here’s the track that was put together during the feed:
