4 Down

"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.

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.

Face Me

Face Me is a Scarface Type Beat that is perfect for Story Rap or story telling like one of the greatest Gangsta Rap Artists - Scarface. When I made this Sample Flip Hip Hop beat, I had Scarface in mind.

Dear Taurus,
I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.

Sincerely Deena

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
