I mean, what? Is that what this is? I don't even know what that collection of words really means, I just typed it out without thinking. All that brings to mind is some sort of breakfast sausage with sedatives in it. That aside, I do have this new track for you to listen to!

It's an uplifting track with a whole lot of stuff going on. It starts off with a piano and some slow swelling strings, building up into a big beat with a bunch of chops and stutters. After this it drops you into a wall of sound with big guitars, more strings, and an e.piano. There's also a violin doing it's soloing thing and then a new synth and an 808 and...okay, how about you just listen to it?

Misc

In addition to this here music making, I've also been toying around in Unity, seeing if I can figure out how to make something video game. I think I can, it seems pretty easy so far, at least the easiest programming has ever seemed. I've picked out my simplest engaging game idea and will hopefully have something to show for it in a year or so if I don't give up.

I'm also left handed and have been practicing writing with my right hand. Feels super weird, but the writing is becoming legible. Soon, I shall be able to write with both hands simultaneously and nothing will be able to stop me. Well, nothing writing-based, at least. Maybe some sort of writing-centric super villain that shoots out mechanical pencil leads. Dr.Graphfight. I don't know.

Okay, I'm done now.

Dem some hot beats, y'all.

Quite well done again. I should really show you off more to my friends, the reaction is generally pretty positive.

You know, if you had a CD of all your music I would buy it... if I had any money. Luckily, you make it possible for me and everyone to listen to your work anytime! Quite wonderful it is.

<3 Thank you! <3

I wish it were, but I think the programmer of the ezmuze series is pretty burnt out on it. I gotta learn to do this programming thing, it would be better that way.

I couldn't resist taking a peek, and I'm glad I did! That was an amazing experience listening to that. The song takes you through a variety of phases; it really shows off all of your production talents. Great work. MORE! MORE, I SAY!

@mrfluke: Thanks! I'll look into that as the scripting in Unity is C#.

Woo! MORE, you say!? Well, I've got plenty more over on my Youtube, my website, and a bunch of other places around the web like Grooveshark, last.fm, and earbits. Those last three being sites you can stream from, even via one of them fancy phones if ya got one. There be hundreds of songs, in lots of different styles and genres, so go forth and gorge yourself until your ears give out.

As for new stuff, I post a blog here with each new thing, so keep a look out for those. I have no idea what or when the next track shall be, but when it is, it shall be here.

Thanks for listening. :D

Your production seems to have come quite a ways from the music I remember listening to a couple years back. It was pretty awesome before, but it's super tight now.

Very cool, man.

#15 Posted by TehBuLL (597 posts) -

Fucking top notch! You've always been great but this has alot more...I don't know...emotion than your previous stuff I heard. Eh that isn't right, all of your stuff has been great but this is on another level.

#16 Edited by Hamst3r (4462 posts) -

Thanks again. :3

Speaking of better production, I do kind of want to revisit some old tracks and update them. Got a few in mind that I think would really benefit from an update - make 'em fressssssh.

That. And beautiful even. Would listen again, and I am. Right now!

Hot-but-still-relaxing-banger was my nickname in college.

No it wasn't... It was actually "Probably-a-deformed-virgin" ='(

By the way this song is awesome!

Fucking amazing Hamst3r your songs are always legit this is one of your best yet I still hope you do more vocal stuff in the future, Passing Through You is one of my favorite songs period.

#26 Posted by Hamst3r (4462 posts) -

@evilsbane: Thanks! I'll definitely be doing more vocal tracks! I've done a few since Passing Through You: Secrets & It's Gonna Be Alright, albeit they're very different from Passing. But yes, there will likely be more like Passing in the future. :D
