The Way

The Way - reason 4 beat instrumental sample flip piano beat

This is a sample-flip beat video / piano music video combination showing how I create moody instrumental music with a ton of piano improvisation and playing by ear. In the beginning of the video, I flip a sample to make a background beat and then later, I improvise on the piano after figuring out the key the beat is in by ear. I develop the rest of the piano parts and instrumentation into the final song. I mad this beat using Propellerhead Reason 4, the Akai MPD32 and the M-Audio Oxygen8 v2 MIDI controllers.

On The Surface

On The Surface - Reason Beat Making - "Stirred Not Shaken"

This is one of the tracks on my Moody instruMental Music collection "Stirred Not Shaken" inspired by Building 429's "We Won't Be Shaken" track.

There are no samples or sample flips in this one. I explain how and why I put together the piano parts and the rest of the instrumentation.

I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. I'm showing you how to make Moody instruMental Music using Reason as I create another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "On The Surface".

Days End

Smooth James Smooth Jazz

My love for contemporary jazz and Smooth Jazz has grown a great deal over the years and I have started to think of it as "Grown-Man HipHop". Smooth James is my collection of jazzy, piano moody instrumental music and it isthe start of a different musical path for me.

Days End is one of the first tracks I created for this smooth jazz collection and the track features my piano performance reflecting a recent vacation trip to Utah with my family.
