By My Hand

Original Piano Moody Instrumental Music, Life Story Music by Taurus M. James

By My Hand is a reflective, sad, introspective and somewhat dramatic music piece I made that can be used as a film music for those ominous and eerie scenes. I feature the piano in this one with a repeating theme of sad introspection because I wanted to express the questioning sorrow I feel at times when death takes someone close. I repeat the theme over a slow and steady backdrop of minimal drums and a changing, looping synth and guitar. The ominous orchestra section darkens the mood of the track, but trumpets later turn the questioning feel into an exclamation.

Instruments: piano (featured), upright bass, drums, strings section, orchestra, trumpets section, horns, cellos

About my notes: It's always funny writing out notes to myself about this Moody instruMental Music that I make. It's even funnier when I read what I write years later. These notes aren't meant to make a whole lot of sense. I'm just trying to capture something about the music at the time that I create it.

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.

Genre: Piano Music, DownTempo, Avant-garde

Mood(s): Somber, Dramatic, sad

Tempo: Slow, Very Slow

I made this one with my mind focused on grieving. I dedicate this one in loving memory of my uncle, Joseph Lockett.

This is Moody instruMental Music from the Heartwashed collection. Heartwashed is also known as Heartwashed: Exodus to Genesis. This collection of Moody instruMental Music contains my attempts at making avant-garde music. (That sounds cool - avant-garde...oooooh.) Avant-garde is defined as:

"new and unusual or experimental ideas, especially in the arts, or the people introducing them."

Hey, I'm just making music as it comes to me. This stuff tends to be more "in-your-face" and rough, but the emotions are heavy and a bit raw. The instruments attack hard, but the music allows the feelings to run deep. I think I have some good mood changes in this collection.

About my notes: It's always funny writing out notes to myself about this Moody instruMental Music that I make. It's even funnier when I read what I write years later. These notes aren't meant to make a whole lot of sense. I'm just trying to capture something about the music at the time that I create it.

"Victims (version 3)" Sample Flip Beat - Piano Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

This is one of the piano sample flip beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "Christ Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com.

In this third version of the "Victims" track, I play around with the sample flips in a way that strikes more of a determined mood. Just experimenting with moods in my moody instrumental music!

For this piano beat, 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.

Melancholy

I was experimenting with the idea of more of a dialog between musical instruments. The violin and piano move around each other in a way to give this piece a chill factor. Plus the low strings give the haunting/somber feel. All of this over a New York style beat.

Im Sorry

I'm Sorry

This is a collaboration I did with Tomislav Pensa, one of the members on ReasonStation.net.

Another one of my "complete makeovers", I re-arranged this piece as a groove and added the percussion, piano and violin parts. The acoustic guitar, flute and piccolo are the parts that inspired me to create a groove.

The ambient keys and house-style bass provide a nice backdrop for the chorus I created to make this part of the track sound like the lead is apologizing.

With this song, I'm saying 'I'm sorry' for all the wrong I've done and all the pain I've caused.

If I were to write lyrics to this, the chorus would go something like...

"Forgive me/
I'm Sorry/
Please, don't give up/
Don't turn your back on me"

This Cross

New music sample from the Heartwashed CD collection

This Cross is a piece that focuses on the intensity of emotions involved when following Christ in a faith walk.

More space is used in the piano solos, which are intentionally anti-climactic.

The high violin part provides an antagonistic feel while the contrasting, low cellos give the foreboding element.

I would really love to have Nuttin But Stringz and Miri Ben-Ari do this song. It would be so awesome to have true violinists do this song! Maybe one day.

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
