Some Fantastic, Awesome, Super Cool Music

Hello, everyone! Today I’m here to share with you some awesome music from a very talented friend of mine, Jon R. Mohr. He’s a composer/musician, plays piano and writes music, all that jazz, and he has some pretty awesome sounding stuff I thought was worth sharing. He’s got slow, pretty piano pieces, action-y ones that sound like they’re straight off a video game, fantastical/otherworldly sounding stuff, even 8-bit music!

He says he uses a couple of different programs, like Reaper and EastWest. He is self-taught on all the programs and on piano, so that’s neat.

Anyways, you can check out his channel here. He is also open for commission work! You can email him at jonrmohrmusic@gmail.com.

Here’s a couple of my favorites by him:

Those two are from his Action playlist, which is probably my favorite playlist of his, that or the fantasy one, which this one is from:

But this dark fantasy one is also awesome:

Aside from these, his piano covers are definitely worth noting, too, like in this Hallelujah cover:

Anyways, those are just a couple of really great ones, but be sure to check out others on his channel, he has lots of fantastic stuff and I think he deserves a lot more recognition.

Hope you enjoy, and as always, have a great day!

  1. Wow, I can definitely see why you like his music. The cinematic/fantasy/action pieces are very evocative of each of their themes. And the Hallelujah cover is very inventive and lovely. Thank you!

  2. Hey Athena, you should write a post about how you get your news. Like, I would never have found about this guy from my usual rotation of reddit and Feedly. What’s your typical web-browsing day like?

  3. Athena, I told your mom how much I liked your story about meeting Death but it was at the end of the weekend and we are old, so hi. I enjoyed it. I have paid to read stuff much, much worse than that.

  4. There are a lot of self-taught musicians out there who have gone very far…including my all-time favorite jazz pianist (Bobby Enriquez). However, the video you showed of the fella playing piano shows poor/unnatural hand position and tense muscles, which are things that can in the long run lead to repetitive stress injury, depending on how many hours a day are put in at the piano, frequency of taking breaks, etc. (Just an observation, from someone who originally learned to play piano in the relatively uncool way of being taught by a qualified teacher.)
