"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.
Follow me on:
Thank you for your support.
Grace and Peace!

Weekly Homework Podcast #38: J Dilla Tribute [2.10.14]
It's February and the good people of CMA are currently on break from the Weekly Homework Podcast. So why would we pass up the opportunity to honor one of the greatest producers of all time? Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, the band is back together to honor the legendary James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla. 11 brave souls stepped up to the challenge. The result? Possibly our greatest episode to date, but we'll let you be the judge.
"Life Not Seen" TaurusBeats Original, Piano - Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M. James
Piano freestyle over an orchestral, RnB / Hip Hop beat lamenting Life Not Seen.
Dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano.
"Welcome Back" Piano - 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.
