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 3/4 time signature.

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

Empire of Sock: Episode 2

17. January 2014 01:17 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Barfquestion? Exactly. That's right, I've written the score for the animated series "Empire of Sock" by Dr.Barfquestion. He doesn't claim to be a doctor, I just like prefixing things with "Dr."

The first video in the series used two pieces I had already written titled "Everything Is Chill In Silent Hill" and "Rupture". The second installment in the series, which is embedded below, also makes use of "Rupture" as well as a new piece titled Exitium Aeternus.

I have it on good authority that the third installment in the series will make further use of Exitium Aeternus...and by good authority I mean intertwined weasels with bloodied mouths dripping through the cracks of my bedroom ceiling like ghastly vapors. I trust everything they say to me.

 

The new track can be downloaded here: THA-exitiumaeternus_eos.mp3

Enjoy!

New Track: Neon Glow

27. November 2013 03:45 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Doing my pop music thing again with big vocals and catchy melodies. Also trying out a more breathy voice and some falsetto layers for the verses. All this poptasticness is on top of some harsh grinding synths and a thick 808 beat.

There There's also a bit of a sci-fi theme going on with the lyrics.

New Track: The Stranger

29. October 2013 22:25 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Be wary of the man with no name. You will recognize him by the drum machine on his hip. He's also carrying a saxophone, a bouzouki, a violin, a grand piano - not sure how he gets that one up on his horse - a slide guitar, a ukulele, a waterphone, a vibraslap, a didgeridoo, and a few other assorted odds and ends. The dude is kind of weird, I mean I don't know, just be careful if he rides in to your town.

This track is a mish-mash of sounds, but I think they work together quite well. What started off as a mostly Greek Folk music sounding piece turned into hip hop, got darker and kept taking on new non-Greek instruments until "The Stranger" happened.

Ivan Ives - Mannequin

24. September 2013 21:08 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Sometimes I make hip hop beats. Sometimes Ivan Ives spits over them. This is one of those times. It's a track full of big strings, big brass, a bassoon, an oboe, some drums and a cowbell that goes donk.

 

I think my track kinda sticks out as the odd man out if you listen to the whole album, but hey, that could just be me being overly self-conscious about it. Regardless, as a whole, Stranger is quite a good album and definitely worth a listen! So, check it out:

 

You can preview and purchase Stranger from the Ivan Ives Official Site, iTunes or Amazon, and you can find more Ivan Ives over on Twitter, Youtube and Facebook.
