"4 Down" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James
This is one of the original compositions in my Moody instruMental Music collection "CMA Beats" available for download here at TaurusBeats.com.
4 Down is a four-on-the-floor dance track that features piano and lush orchestration to create a mood that is serious, intens, romantic and impassioned.
For this composition, I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. Be sure to check out my Reason Beat Making Video Tutorials, where I show you how to make Moody instruMental Music and sample flip beats.
Made for Computer Music Academy (CMA) Homework Assignment #64
Weekly Homework Podcast #48 | Beats | Computer Music Academy
Your assignment this week is to create a Four on the Floor track (organic or sample based) within your own genre. Your 4 kick pattern should be the first thing you lay, then build everything else around it. By building around the kicks, I mean by interweaving the rest of your music on top of, around and in between them. Let the kicks drive and while the rest are passengers. Experiment! Come up with some sickness that's out of your comfort zone. Since this is different from our “Electronic/Dance Music” Assignment, I'd like to see the peeps that normally make that style to try something different, but stick to the script. I'm pretty sure all of you will kill this. This assignment is due Sat 9.27.14 @ Midnight EST. Your submission should be 2:30 of less.
Even though I'm using Propellerhead Reason to make my Moody instruMental Music creations, you can use my tips and techniques in any DAW to create your own music and make beats.
Follow me on:
Thank you for your support.
Grace and Peace!
