Not By Sight - Life Story Music

2 Corinthians 5:7
New International Version (NIV)
For we live by faith, not by sight.

"Not By Sight"

From the "Vision" collection

This piano freestyle (improvisation) is my expression of my thoughts and feelings about living through the loss of my eyesight. In Christ, I have peace that I nevera had before, even in the midst of trouble.

Inspiration is what you are watching in this video. The Strong Creator God is inspiring me to play the piano parts without any prior rehearsal.

I am amazed each time I watch this video because I know how limited I am. I don't play piano and I cannot go back and perform these piano parts. I started making these video recordings to capture what happens when I am "in the zone" - what I call the Grace and Peace Zone.

I cannot fully explain the experiences of creating the music with all of the instrumentation and its arrangement.I praise God for the experience of knowing Him through music in this way. He uses my limited abilities and reveals His power to inspire far beyond what I can imagine.

RnB Dance Beat, Sample Flip for Lease or Purchase

"Contact" Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Contact is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat. 

"bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat."

This is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece. This short version uses various horn and bass chops of a blue-eyed soul sample.

Great fit: playing this track while driving on long road trips.

The Delivery

"The Delivery" Film Music Soundtrack - Original, Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M. James

The Delivery is a dark, eerie scary movie music piece. 

"dark, eerie scary movie music piece"

This is a dark, eerie scary movie music piece that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece for a scary movie or horror flick. This short drum-less piece uses sparseness and intentional broken riffs to heighten anticipation and uneasiness while focusing the listener on an eerie melody.

Great fit: playing this track while watching dark videos or images - or movies like Underworld or Batman.

image for Welcome Back (Piano)

Welcome Back (Piano)

Dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano.

"Welcome Back" Piano - Original, Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Welcome Back (Piano) is a dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano. 

"dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano."

This is a heavy instrumental music piece that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a TV Drama theme song. This shorter version is drumless and focuses the listener on the piano theme, using supporting percussion.

Great fit: playing this track while watching dark videos or images - like Underworld, Gotham or Batman.

"Chill" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James 

Chill is a smooth, laid-back track featuring a lighter piano than I normally do. Think "Art of Noise" on this one.

"Smooth, laid-back, piano instrumental music like Art of Noise."

I wanted something that gradually builds, with a real slow and controlled emotional tug. At the same time, I wanted to still include the beat in such a way that signifies my style - cracking snare and thumping kicks. The drums are more rhythmic with stutter kicks and sychopated percussion elements to enhance the overall movement.

I love playing this track while watching  videos about the universe, space, galaxies, etc.

"Blacks" Original Piano Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Originally named "Black's Theme", this is one of the original piano beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "Christ Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com.

One of my soundtrack pieces, the idea for this song was sparked by the piano "hook" melody (chorus). I wanted a strong, intense feel for this one and builr the orchestration to really carry the trackeven without the lead piano. The piano is all improvisation added after all of the other instrumentation and song structure was completed. 

Without the lead piano, this could be a great story rap bat for a skilled storytelling rapper. This could also be a nice fit for a film, video game (end credits) or commercial ad.

Arise

Arise is moody instrumental music and a cool song to wake up to. I would call this "wake up music" because it is slow music that has a nice feel to it, and it is strong enough to get your eyes open.

This track features the harp, and electric guitar and strings along with a strong drum beat and bass line. It would fit nicely into a project needing cinematic sounds, or as part of a soundtrack to a film.

How To Make Drum Tracks While Making Beats Using Reason

Learning how to Make Drum Tracks While Making Beats is a basic skill that you must master as a music producer. Hip-Hop music producers, especially, have to master different ways of laying drums and manipulating drum tracks in order to get the right motion and feel for the music style they want to create when they make beats. Using Propellerhead Reason music making software and my Akai MPD32, I make beats and Moody instruMental Music, and I have learned how to make drum tracks while making beats.

Here is a message from one of my subscribers asking for pointers on the subject of laying drums in Reason while using the Akai MPD32:

My name is Fernando and I've been watching your videos for awhile now, and they've been helpful. I could see and hear that your a lover of soulful music and so I am. I'm new to beat making and I'm just starting out. I also have an Akai mpd32 and the machine is amazing. I can assign the samples to the pad, the only thing that is giving me trouble is laying drums over it. I forget to mention that I'm using Reason 4.0. I have the creativity, the only thing that is holding me back is the technical side. If you have time can you give me a few pointers on what you do, that would be helpful thanks.

I also wanted to point out in one of your videos I thought I seen a Wayne Grudem 'Systematic Theology' book. If it is, its a good read. I'm also a Born Again Christian, so other then music we also share something, and its the Love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Do you also listen to Christian hip-hop? (Shai linne, Flame, Steven the Levite, Timothy Brindle, etc) I hope to hear from you soon.

Grace & peace,

Fernando

Sunny Days

Piano Instrumental Music, Hip Hop, Original Music

Sunny Days is another one of my piano experiments in making moody instrumental music. (I should just call it piano music, but I'm still working on the whole piano-playing thing.)

My music compositions process was pretty much the same as always. First, I constructed the beat. Then, I developed a chord progression and bass line. Next, I developed melodies through piano improvisation. Finally, I wrapped the whole thing with orchestral instrumentation.

The final result of this piano-featured instrumental music reminds me of an interesting cross between part of the "Sesame Street" theme song and "Can You Stand The Rain" by New Edition (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis).

My Favorite Part is the piano. The different expressions I came up with in the two verses are pretty cool, and the way I changed the mood in each verse is nice, too. Like a lot of my moody instrumental music, this song has a big ending that contrasts the beginning verse. You gotta listen to the whole song to get the changes.

I named this song "Sunny Days" because the music reminds me that storms and cloudy days don't last forever. I want to encourage people who listen to this moody instrumental to really appreciate the sunny days in life. Troubles don't last always. Dark storms give way to "Sunny Days".

Epic Story Rap Beat, Cinematic Music

Bedlam

- a scene of uproar and confusion.

I don't know why I named this beat Bedlam. I think it was because there was an OU/OSU football game being advertised at the time I was making it.

Anyway, this experimental Hip-Hop beat has a little bit of a feeling of uproar and confusion. The beat drives hard and the instrumentation at the end gives it a good accent.
