Blue Portals Music

2. October 2011 13:15 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Back in 2010 I made some music for a Portal mod titled Blue Portals.

Once the mod was out, I totally forgot to release all this new music. Two of the tracks ended up being released as regular tracks and the rest just sorta got ignored. Well, here they are, the missing tracks!

If you’ve heard the prior Portal-Themed music tracks I’ve done, you may notice that System Error is an oldie and Quarter-Mile is a modification of that.

This music also differs from my prior set of Portal-Inspired Music in that the lead designer requested that the music be less ambient and more melodic, sometimes calling for drums and organic instruments.

1. Materializing Cats in Space
2. Simply Think
3. Empty Chasms
4. Grinding Gears
5. Tea Party
6. Portal Dust
7. The Overseer
8. Where The Nightingale Sings
9. Quarter-Mile
10. System Error

New Track: The Solution

1. June 2011 13:26 by Hamst3r in Tracks

A few months ago, a guy named Eisen Feuer asked me to make an end credits theme for his Portal-themed fan film titled, Outside Aperture. Only 1 minute of music was necessary for the film, but I didn’t want to release an mp3 that short, so I’ve extended the track to 3 minutes.

The track has a lot of layers going at once; with bells, multiple guitars, multiple drum sets, sitar, tabla, piano and synths stacked on one another.

New Track: Where the Nightingale Sings

10. July 2010 14:06 by Hamst3r in Tracks

There’s a mod in the works called, “Blue Portals”. It has an area with a Japanese garden sort of aesthetic. I was tasked with writing a calm music track to accompany the visuals.

The main instrument in the track is a Khim, which is essentially a smaller version of the Chinese Yangqin. There are also some flutes and tuned gongs, as well as a little bit of synthesis. It’s a very simple and sparse arrangement overall. :)

Aperture: Déjà Vu Soundtrack

21. June 2009 16:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks





Hey! Got 8 new tracks for you today, which equate to a little over 15 minutes of music. The music is overall very ambient with the exception of the last track.

This is the soundtrack for the Portal modification titled Aperture: Déjà vu. Information about the mod can be found on ModDB.

This music differs from my prior set of Portal Inspired Music in that the lead designer requested that the music be less melodic and more ambient. So I’ve used more evolving and noise-oriented sounds to keep the music interesting without a lot of melody going on.

This set of music has also been mixed louder than the previous set, so it should fit better in your music collection. :)

1. Deja Vu
2. Coil
3. Cyclical Chambers
4. Soul of the Machine
5. Administrator Access
6. Redundancy
7. Paramnesia
8. Why Did You Come Here

New Track: Chell's Revenge

19. July 2008 18:43 by Hamst3r in Tracks





Guess what? The freshness seal. It’s unbroken. That means this beat will be fresh when you open it. Mmm…delicious beats.

This is a “Remix” I’ve done for the Chell’s Revenge series of Portal maps by generalvivi. I’ve taken some of the dialogue from the first episode and put it to a kicking drum and bass beat.
