Smooth, laid-back, piano instrumental music like Art of Noise by TaurusBeats

"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.

"Contact" Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Contact is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat. 

"bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat."

This is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece. This short version uses various horn and bass chops of a blue-eyed soul sample.

Great fit: playing this track while driving on long road trips.
