Cmin 62bpm 10-24-07

This is a common progression in Cmin with a smooth jazz triplet feel. I programmed the drums, bass, phaser Rhodes, and improvised a short solo on an EXS24 Steinway piano. Download: Cmin 62bpm 10-24-07

Dmin 75bpm 10-16-07

I was feeling mellow today and needed to spend some time in the new Logic Pro 8 so this is what I came up with. Looks like I’ve been spending a lot of time in Dmin lately. Download: Dmin 75bpm 10-16-07

10-11-07 Dmin 88bpm

This slow techno/R&B track begins with A phrygian chord and is tonally centered on Dmin Aeolian. I was playing around with the new Logic Pro 8 Template Chooser and used the basic electronic template as my palette. I quickly came up with a simple descending synth hook that I liked. I’m also playing around with a vocal melody that’s not in the mix yet.
