The Story Behind "Django"

Visually Impaired Producer Taurus James (aka TaurusBeats) makes an Emotional Inspiring Piano Freestyle (improvisation, unrehearsed, unwritten, completely spontaneous) to his sample flip beat "Django Unchained" using Propellerthead Reason and a Yamaha DJX keyboard.

I'm not a pianist, I just play a lot. (Word to Big Pun!)

Seriously, though, I am not a pianist and I don't know how to play in the traditional way. But I sit down and these piano improvisations (I call them freestyles) just happen. Like this one, many of these piano freestyles are complete songs - verses and hooks - all created on the fly, off the top of my head, in the moment.

This is the FINISHED PRODUCTION of the "Django Unchained" Piano Freestyle Sample Flip Beat that I created in memory of my friend and Brother in Christ, Curtis Price. Lord willing, I will keep giving all I can to reach and help people, in music and in life, like He did with me.

= Track Info: "Django Unchained" - Piano Freestyle Sample Flip Beat by Taurus M. James (TaurusBeats)

How I Made This Music Using Reason

I make the beat first using Propellerhead Reason.

In this case, I made the sample flip beat using a guitar riff as the foundation and built the rest of the beat around the way I flipped the guitar sample chops. I hand play everything and build the instrumentation to wrap the sample flip.

Then I freestyle on the piano. It's like the beat inspires me to make the piano improvisation. Best way I can describe it is "going with the flow" or riding the wave and being completely in the moment. I'm not "trying" to play piano at all.

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.

Thank you for your support.

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)

Grace and Peace!

"Almost Touched" original piano beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James 

Almost Touched is an experimental piano beat for a television theme

This is another original piano beat,

Made for Dreamer Moody instruMental Music Collection

Dreamer | Piano Beat | Moody instruMental Music

This is the end result of a track that I was building for a YouTube video. I started out with some very BASIC notes and gradually built the track from there. This is the final arrangement that I call "Almost Touched" because of a feeling that I get that when I listen to this track. I think about having "Almost Touched" my full potential and how it keeps me motivated to work harder to get a little "Closer".
