First track of 2011: Active Grid

12. January 2011 13:45 by Hamst3r in Tracks

So like, the grid, man. It’s active and stuff and we’re all connected. That’s like, deep or something, you know?

All that aside, this is a cinematic orchestral piece that starts off uplifting then goes dark in an Inception / Tron sort of way. Strings, brass, percussion and synths. A whole lot of that sort of stuff, all going at once. It has been described as, “bacon”. I like bacon.

The Giant Bomb Community Song

21. September 2010 13:53 by Hamst3r in Giant Bomb

So, there’s this website, Giant Bomb, which is my favorite gaming website. I find their videos and podcast to be quite amusing.

There’s also a good community there on the forums.

About a month ago I start a thread requesting voice recordings. A week into the project I had the song pretty much done and determined that a video would really seal the deal.

Here’s the end result:

New Track: Materializing Cats in Space

4. August 2010 14:03 by Hamst3r in Tracks

So, like, you know, cats…and stuff. I can generate them with my mind and make them materialize in space. Don’t ask me how it works, I don’t know.

Anyways, this track is a lot of heaviness going on. Pounding synths, drums, guitars and other noises stacked like delicious pancakes.

New Track: Murder Taxi

15. July 2010 14:04 by Hamst3r in Tracks

That is one murderous-ass taxi, man. It’s like…like some sort of Murder Taxi.

You know what I mean?

Murder Taxi.

Anyways, this is a funky electro something-or-other type track. A phat beat, beefy synths, slap bass, distorted clavinet and lots of little filtery sweepy effects.

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. :)
