THEATRE MUSIC WITH REASON

Welcome. This music was created using Propellerheads' Reason. I incorporate original music in my work as a theatre sound designer. This page contains examples of this work.

Hurdy Gurdy Refill HURDY GURDY REFILL
I imagine this is the only Hurdy Gurdy instrument for Reason's NN-XT. This Hurdy Gurdy has three strings, instead of the usual 6 (two per unison note.) When played correctly, this is a very realistic hurdy gurdy instrument with aftertouch. This instrument is chromatic and is tuned to "D." Play and hold A2 and A3 with your left hand. This replicates the drone created by turning the Hurdy Gurdy's wheel. The instrument has a monophonic melodic string. Use your right hand to play Bb3 through D4. Each key relase triggers a random, wooden mechanical button release sound. Use aftertouch "percussion" movements to make the drone buzz in rhythm with the melody you play.
