Exodus

image for ExodusImage for Exodus –

Exodus is a fast-paced, driving, drum and percussion-led track with a piano and violin theme. This abstract, repetitive, robotic, mechanical, and somewhat dramatic music piece can be used for commercials, advertisements, or film music for those scenes showing chasing or running, like a car chase.

I pound out the piano theme that is also shared with the violin to express chaos or trouble as the reason for fleeing or running. I added a breakdown and build-up in the track to express the change in emotions. I have the screaming trumpets accent the fear and urgency of the chase. I also have an underlying orchestral string section for the emotional breakdown, which sounds a little eerie and dark, but adds a deeper feel to the track.

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

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, Avant-garde

Mood(s): Dramatic, Urgent

Tempo: Very Fast, Fast 140 BPM

Exodus is the second song that I finished for the Heartwashed CD collection. More edge, more fire, more of my signature sound and edgy piano music - that's what you'll find in Exodus.

Released 13 December 2006 on TAURUSBEATS.COM.

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.

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.

Regrets Erased

Regrets Erased is a music piece that I made as a "filler" (incidental music) or intermission track to fit between movements in a play or between my songs. I feature the violin in this piece because i wanted the melody to be more expressive of the change in moodsabout to happen between songs.

Instruments: Violin (featured), piano, upright bass, drums (light)

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.
