    Batman by Danny Elfman

    I am trying to find the original movie file score for Batman from 1989. It was composed by Danny Elfman. I would like to arrange it for a winter drumline by myself. I am willing to pay for the score but I can't locate it anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction.

    You won't find it for sale, period. It is only available for hire as it is firmly under copyright. You'd need to find the copyright holder's publisher is my best guess. Regardless of anything else (private use for example) it is not able to be copied or modified in anyway without the composer's permission.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    I would contact a few arrangers online who might be willing to help you. Most of us have written this piece (sometimes many times) and have scores. You might also simply buy a marching band arrangemtns from JW Pepper. These would just be the main theme.

    Good luck
