After realising at an early age that he was not made for formal music theory and education, Hammarstrand bought an electric bass and formed a dub reggae band at high school.
This DIY experience formed Hammerstrand’s musical education and allowed him to learn all the instruments in a band.
After learning sound engineering, Hammarstrand worked as a sound engineer, sound designer and composer in the fields of broadcasting and music.
Hammarstrand’s influences come from bands like Fourtet, Amon Tobin, Flying Lotus, Air, Massive Attack.
Hammarstrand has composed music and sound design for commercials, events and exhibitions – for brands such as Adidas, Cacharel, Louis Vuitton, and Swarovski.
