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 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: Secrets

7. August 2013 05:28 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Vocals vocals vocals. This one is a whole lot of vocals. It's also pop. Upbeat pop...but kind of relaxing too, if you can dig it. It's also about secrets. How mysterious.

The synths drive, the drums snap, the bass grumbles and the effects swoosh all around. There are also a few string and guitar bits thrown in for good measure. Oh and this is the largest vocal stack I've ever done, so yay for that.

Track Update: Falling Through The Air

1. April 2013 21:46 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey! Haven't done one of these, "look at the music sequencer" videos in a while.

I've also never done a reconstructed interface video like this before, taking a bunch of high res videos and screenshots of a program and stitching them back together in After Effects, so that's a first.


It's for the track, "Falling Through The Air", which you can download here:

New Track! Falling Through The Air!

21. March 2013 02:15 by Hamst3r in Tracks

What's this? What's this?! A new track! Chock full of fast beats, buzzing basses and vocals! I think I'm getting better overall with the vocal stuff, so I'm happy about that.

This track also marks the first time I've loaded up Buzz Tracker in over a year. 99% of this track was done in Reaper, but that one little last percent is a bunch of granular synth nonsense that I absolutely had to do with Buzz. Buzz is still the best for that sort of thing.

Anyway, check it out:

Also, guess what! Here's a teaser for the upcoming game Audiosurf Air featuring this track:
