WHERE:

Alexandria, Virginia, USA - The Pentagon

My wife was statined at the Pentagon, so we were living in Alexandria, Virginia, in the Kingstown area.

I remember catching the Metro rail to downtown DC to go to work at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

I grew up in Southeast, Washington, DC, but I wasn't fond of being back in the city. (I love slower-pace living.)

Met some great people and had some wonderful experiences.

Here are some snapshots from my life story at the time I made this song.

WHY:

I made this sample flip beat after listening to a wonderful piece of music from the "LifeScapes" collection that I bought from Target.

This GRACE is extended to you from God our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.

One of my "epic beats" from "The Genius" collection.

HOW:

Created with Propellerhead Reason, Akai MPD32, M-Audio Oxygen 8 MIDI controller

 

Moods

You already know that I create moody instrumental music, but you may not know that I always want to hear how what I create affects other people. 

Here is how I attempted to describe the moods for this music:

abstract, repetitive, atmospheric, ambient, dreamy, elegant, graceful, ethereal, heavenly, hypnotic, lush, magical, shimmering, swirling, grows, busy, catchy, adventurous, emotional, heartwarming, Positive, optimistic, bright, carefree, happy, inspirational, uplifting, satisfied, contented, upbeat, punchy, quirky, relaxed, laid back, peaceful, calm, romantic, strong, confident, epic, majestic

Your feedback is very important to me me. What do you thin?.

Use Suggestions

I would love fo my music to be used in films, commercials, videos, video games. But I can also see my music being used in elevators, waiting rooms and lounges - you know, the background music in those places.

I can see people listening to my music on long road trips. The coolest vision I had was of a symphony orchestra playing my music. That would be DOPE!

My daughter commented that I make "steady study music" - music she would listen to focus while studying.

What do you suggest? Where can you picture my music being used? In what ways and what venues can you see people using my music? Tell me in the comments section.
