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: http://goo.gl/LwjLem

New Track: Departures

2. April 2014 07:06 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Flexing my indie rock muscles this time, with some bouncy guitars and toy instruments on top of a slammin' 4/4 drum beat. That happens later in the track though. Before that, we dive into a nice bed of ambient guitars, commodore 64 noises, and music box melodies in a 6/8 time signature.

There's a lot of stuff going on in this track, it goes places.

Remix: Going Down The Fast Way

Rise of the Triad. It's a video game from the 90's. It's being remade...so, how about a remix of my favorite track from the game?


Pew pew pew!

New Track: Turboprop

15. May 2010 14:16 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Turboprop! Yeah, more airplane terms, because this is for Biplanes HD, dawg. You know, planes.

Anyways, upbeat chiptune rock is the flavor of the day, though this one gets a bit heavier around the middle. A bit more evil there too.

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:

Download: THA – Nihilist (right click, save as)

or stream it on THA Radio.

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
