I Need a Doctor– Piano Concerto in B Minor

23 Aug

This is Part I of a classicized series of pop/hip hop songs. I imagined what these songs would sound like if they were written by a 20th century composer instead of a hip hop producer. Part I is based on “I Need a Doctor” by Eminem, Dr. Dre and Skylar Grey. Philip Glass is a stylistic influence.

Typically concertos have 3 parts so I’ll produce Parts II and III with similar motifs and themes.


POWER + Love

This is a mashup of Kanye West’s POWER, Maroon 5’s She Will be Loved, Jay-Z and Mr. Hudson (covering the Alphavilles) Forever Young, and Canon in D by Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel.

This is the first video where I actually say a few words. And by say a few words I mean rap lyrics. It was necessary to clarify the song I think.. :-/
