Chill

Original Smooth, laid-back, piano instrumental music like Art of Noise by Taurus M. James

"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.

This is another CMA Beat,

Made for Computer Music Academy (CMA) Homework Assignment #69

Weekly Homework Podcast #69 | Beats | Computer Music Academy

So.. number 69… in most WHA's we're normally upbeat. Doesn't matter what genre, subject or challenge, somehow, it just happens to be where we land. There's nothing wrong with this, but it's time to switch it up. With that said, welcome to the Chill Out Suite.

This week's assignment is to create a composition to chill to. Whether it's you alone or with your mate; the work day is over, the sun is down, the children (if you have some) are asleep, the lights are dim and the perfect soundtrack is coming from your sound system. What are you listening to?

 

 

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.

Englishman

Sometimes, I like to take songs from my favorite artists and make something different with my sound. "Englishman" is a great example.

I spent a couple of hours trying to re-create the original "Englishman in New York" by Sting. I was satisfied with everything except that saxophone! (Sax is always a hard one to deal with in the digital realm.) After I got a decent re-creation, I slowed the track down from 104 bpm to 96 bpm and created the beat.

When I "re-create" parts of existing songs, I actually go through and manually re-create each part that I can hear, as close to the original as I can. It takes awhile, especially since my "musicianship" is not the best and I only know how to re-create "by ear" (what I hear). In all, it is a great exercise in listening and focusing on specific instruments, sounds and parts within a song when so much is going on within it.

This is another one of my "for fun" tracks. I can only hope that Sting wouldn't be angry if he heard it. :->
