Multi-instrumentalist and Composer
My name is Scott Hampton and I am a composer and performer with over twenty years experience playing trumpet and guitar, plus a few other instruments I’ve picked up over the years. My music has been licensed on hundreds of television shows on networks including NBC, The Food Network, Bravo, HGTV, Travel Channel, MTV, DIY Network and TV Land. Performing as exaltron around New York City and touring nationally, my sound takes the legacy of jazz and funk to new places through the use of live looping and advanced electronics. As a composer, my sound still revolves around the groove, while delving into the language of classic film scores, especially the grittier funk of the 60s and 70s, as well as forays into straight-ahead jazz, latin, middle eastern, afrobeat and 80s electro.
