    Theme from Jurassic Park

    Hi,

    Has anyone attempted the Theme from Jurassic Park on the pipe organ?.
    Just happened to hear it on the radio the other day and thought it might just lend itself to the pipe organ rather well.

    Would be interested in your opinions, or even better your results of having tried it.

    or the long version

    Certainly a powerful piece of music, as you would expect from John Williams. I can only imagine that the majesty of a pipe organ would suit it and I would certainly like to hear what one of out forum members could do with it. Good idea jonesey

    Thanks Teddy ... I'm getting the music and will see what comes from it.
    Unfortunately I can only seem to find a Piano score, so a bit of translation / adaptation will need to happen, but it makes it more of an interesting project.

    where did you get the music from?, did you just use a Piano score, or did you manage to find an Organ score?

    The other theme is published as an organ score by Trumph: http://www.trumph.se/
    but I play from an own arrangement from the piano score.

    Wondering if Cameron Carpenter has tackled this one and has a recording of it.

    FinnViking:
    Perhaps you have a recording of this you could share with us ... even a partial clip would be great, too.

    You might remember that this music is firmly in copyright and I strongly suggest you don't put any of it up here, no matter how small the snippet. My two cent's worth.
    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.

    Sage advise, David ...

    However, afaik, Danish law allows up to a 59 second snippet. Since the physical location of the server is in Denmark, we can use that to our advantage here on MIMF.

    But 59 seconds is a about a quarter of one of the most imporant pieces of music written in the last 50 years!!

    Reference of course to a certain piece of music that requires silence and a piano.

    ^^ I thought that could be played on any instrument ... ()

    Actually, I'm sure I've heard about some group who were on the receiving end of a court action from the estate of Cage for breach of copyright because they had 30 seconds of silence at the end of one of their tracks on a CD. (!!)
