Ethereal Hope Sample Flip Beat Video

I call this one Ethereal Hope.

This is my flip for a challenge on FutureProducers.com. The challenge was that the samples were provided 'already chopped'. Everyone flipped the same chopped samples in some very different ways. Check it out here.

Django Unchained Piano Freestyle

This one is an original. I made the sample flip beat first and added the piano part afterward. What you see in this video is me doing the piano freestyle (improvisation) over the basic sample flip and finger snap. The finger snap serves as the metronome, keeping time for me in the video.

Bounce Back

Bounce Back (also known as Bounce Back From It) is a repeating piano theme that bounces on top of a steady beat. This abstract, repetitive, robotic, mechanical, and somewhat dramatic music piece can be used for commercials, advertisements, or film music for those scenes showing actors building something or strategically planning and constructing. It might even work for a car chase.

I feature the piano repeating theme that doubles later in the verse to express going from working solo to having a little help building a project. I have the violin as an announcer backed by an underlying orchestral string section for the chorus, which sounds a little eerie and dark, but adds an urgent feel to the track.

Instruments: piano (featured), violin (featured), upright bass, drums (light), strings section

Original Composition: This is one of my original compositions. I am playing (or programming) all of the instruments you hear. I used Propellerhead Reason, my computer, and my Yamaha DJX keyboard to produce this track.
