Piano Instrumental Music, Hip Hop, Original Music

Sunny Days is another one of my piano experiments in making moody instrumental music. (I should just call it piano music, but I'm still working on the whole piano-playing thing.)

My music compositions process was pretty much the same as always. First, I constructed the beat. Then, I developed a chord progression and bass line. Next, I developed melodies through piano improvisation. Finally, I wrapped the whole thing with orchestral instrumentation.

The final result of this piano-featured instrumental music reminds me of an interesting cross between part of the "Sesame Street" theme song and "Can You Stand The Rain" by New Edition (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis).

My Favorite Part is the piano. The different expressions I came up with in the two verses are pretty cool, and the way I changed the mood in each verse is nice, too. Like a lot of my moody instrumental music, this song has a big ending that contrasts the beginning verse. You gotta listen to the whole song to get the changes.

I named this song "Sunny Days" because the music reminds me that storms and cloudy days don't last forever. I want to encourage people who listen to this moody instrumental to really appreciate the sunny days in life. Troubles don't last always. Dark storms give way to "Sunny Days".



I didn't use any samples in this instrumental music because it features the piano and and orchestration.

Welcome Back (Piano)

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.

Diary

Okay, Diary is a break from the concept of this collection because it does not have the same beat or beat structure as other songs in the collection. This is one of those "spur-of-the-moment" tracks that I created after hearing the original by Alicia Keys. I just wanted to see if I could lay some of my own keys on the track.

Hey, if I don't do these experimental piano beats, I'll never find out what I can do.

Make Beats with Reason: Layering Samples - "Better" Sample Flip Beat

I made this video showing how I chopped and flipped the sample from Darwin Hobbs' "Better Is One Day" from his Worshipper album. In this video, I show how I layer samples in the NNXT device. The beat I'm working on in this video is called "Better" .

I sent you a message a while back but never got a response. You are probably the main reason I gave up my Mpc 2500 and went with Reason and the Mpd 32....I'm still making music with the combo....thanks Taurus. :-)
