Well, first of all, this is not a real “bio”...

Nothing like a long list of references or something similar here... Honestly, I prefer to talk about me, my feelings and my thoughts. Otherwise, my music speaks for me, so the “media” section is the better way to meet the Peter Hamer’s world ;-)


I’m a musician, composer, guitarist and audio technician.

I was born in the old fashion cassette tape era and I started to play guitar at 9 in a big band with a lovely instrumental repertoire (In The Mood, Apache, The Entertainer, El Bimbo, …).

This experience has strongly influenced my insane music concept for the rest of my life.


I played in a lot of bands, both instrumental and with vocals, ranging from funk rock to ambient/post rock to progressive.

I’ve always been looking for some new beautiful sound to store in my arsenal and this compulsive search continue nowadays: something you could sculpt, stand still and admire...

Pete Hamer - studio


Only a few here, but many more indeed:

  • 70’s rock music (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, …)

  • 80’s music (I.N.X.S., Depeche Mode, Living Colour, …)

  • Progressive rock from every decade (Yes, Rush, Porcupine Tree, Haken, …)

  • Soundtracks (Goblin, Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, …)



I love to learn something new every day and constantly improve what I’ve learned. These are some of my skills:

  • composition

  • sound design

  • audio editing

  • virtual orchestration

  • guitars

Peter Hamer - 8 strings guitar


I live in Torino (Italy).

In composition I’m more on the sad themes. Well, in life I’m cheerful and optimist but I love to portray the transition between a sorrowful moment and a better one. Is a sort of picture: you in the storm and a far light that you can barely see...


I like obscurity (otherwise how would I pass so many hours in my dark studio?????). Well, again, not that I hate sunny days, but we live in a universe where the most part is empty. No light, no air, no hamburgers ;-)

So I think we’ve to deal with this vacuum around us and give us a reason for that. So probably the sense of emptiness we feel during our life is nothing but the “universe fingerprint” inside us…


Bachelor of Science degree in Maths, I love nature, aerospace and - of course - music!

I think that nature, math and music have an intimate, strong, invisible link. You can feel this “perception” in such a different ways...


And so: what’s my meaning of “soundtrack”?

Well, I live in a constant soundtrack life. In every moment I could hear a melody somewhere in my brain, sometime I discover myself playing a rhythm with my teeth, my legs or my arms. So I constantly perceive a “motion” around me that comes “from me”.

When you are “inside the movie”, soundtracks suggest your heart rhythm and your breath. They go inside your subconscious and take the lead of your soul. They make you cry, laugh, scare, hate or fall in love.

Soundtracks lead emotions from the depths. They don’t “create” artificial feelings, they are so real as to be able to uncover your unique, confidential and remote thoughts.

And so am I when I compose a soundtrack: simply...naked.


If you’re not bored enough after reading my surreal bio, feel free to share any thought on my social channels or through the contact form in my website. I’ll be very happy to reply!


Enjoy your life and, if you like, my music too ;-)
