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.

New Remix: Quake Theme

5. September 2013 21:16 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Do you remember the game Quake? It was a first person shooter released in the mid 90's by iD Software. It was really something special and had me hooked immediately, especially the all of the multiplayer mods that people were making. I still occasionally listen to the music from Quake, which was done by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, with the theme song being the real standout of the bunch.

 

So, I've done a remix - or more accurately a cover - of the theme song to Quake. I wanted it to start out sounding very similar and then break out into some fresh guitar riffs and new melodies. Big drums, big guitars, big booms abound. It's a whole lot of stuff going on, packing quite a punch.

New Track: Facemelter

25. June 2013 09:49 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Well, here's a style of drum track I don't do often. It's dancetastic. It's danceable. It's also rock. Like, Electro Rock shoo-bop shoo-bop. There's also a marching band in there...and African percussion...and stuff.

It's got synths too. Lots of synths. Ones that sound like bees and stuff. Oh and guitars, for the rock stuff. You know what, you should just listen to it.

New Track: It's Gonna To Be Alright

28. April 2013 09:15 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Doing my best to channel all of the ambient and shoegaze rock I've heard into something hopeful, uplifting and relaxing. Doin' it up with toy pianos and slide guitars. There are also some washed-out vocals mimicking the lead guitar line and delivering a few choice words. Actually, that makes it sound like they're bad words, but they aren't, they're simply simple and sparse.

So it's okay, it's gonna to be alright. Let the music take you away like a soft fluffy pillow of reassurance.

New Track: Cerberus

15. April 2013 04:47 by Hamst3r in Tracks

A mixture of ideas from film score, post-rock and metal. After what I think is the longest build-up I've ever done, the track drops into some metal chugga chugga widdly weeooeoo and continues to build, getting darker and darker in tone before breaking into some orchestral stuff.

 

This track was written on camera, so there's video of the music writing process right here: THA Studio Session 2.
