    It may take some time for them to answer 2-3 weeks I would guess.

    You sent emails on February 12, which was a Friday, and as of yesterday, February 14 (a Sunday) you have not received a reply?

    That is not surprising ... and I think you need to give them more time to respond. Besides they probably do not do anything business wise over the weekends.

    I realize that you are anxious and all but these things take time. It is quite possible that your message was received and read by an agent or assistant who may (or may not have) have forwarded the information to the actual person to whom you were writing. Professionals, musicians and composer alike, have very very busy lives and deadlines to meet and/or could be on tour with a production company, and not able to respond from the field.

    Give it time to happen ... I would say at least a month or two or even longer.

    The song was also sampled very briefly on this dance music / house tune : 08-orkidea-unity_(solarstones_pure_mix) - From CD 1 of Trance Hex hits

    I would pay £20 to whoever identity's this song correctly.
    As long as I obtain the song

    No less than 339 people have viewed the thread ... can't say you didn't try to get this song.

    If someone does have it they may be leery of sharing due to copyright laws. Some things in life just aren't available at any price. I have several on my wish list that I know will never become available within my lifetime.

    Hey! I remember Ennio Morricone's name from some echoing harmonica, Italian western soundtracks,
    even if they obviously weren't listening to Jimi Hendrix.
    The movie Ripley's Game rings a bell, but not a big one.

    Krummhorn, you're too nice. Aren't you seeing b jo as blow job? I'm feeling one just looking.
    People from different cultures can share a different mentality even if we can't see it.
    Being a magle.dk forum, uh, lover, and musician, this money offer seems profane.

    You should be telling him that he's getting lots of views with no replies,
    because most people think he's more than just off base.

    However, in accordance with all the intellectual copyright laws of the United States,
    which govern the world wide web they created, own, secure, monitor and file away,
    which could result in our imprisonment for five years or a $500,000 fine,
    the opinions shown here are those of the participants,
    and do not reflect the opinions of the owners or product suppliers.

    Krummhorn! I see you as holding yourself close to your chest, deeply.
    I might not remember this thread, but what's on your frustrated wish list?
    Considering where I am with the musical everythings around me,
    I might have an alternative.

    Part of that is living in the Niagara Peninsula, the first commercial hydro in the world.
    Everything electronic, including the world wide web,
    when it was reaching out to you, was piled up here.
    In 1980, it cost $50,000 a year to be hooked up to the world wide web,
    which was shown to originate with a few universities in the United States.

    By the way, if I was really getting off on getting back to you like this, I'd be a
    h jo.

    Dear John Watt,

    I am defensive of copyright regulations as I am a professional performer myself, and although I don't have any published works or recordings, I am very protective with pieces that I have composed for the pipe organ.

    Part of my bread and butter comes from working in a church setting as the organist, the other part comes from a government pension (Social Security). If other people are allowed willy-nilly to send/transmit copyrighted media the original creator of such material is left with zero income. People write/compose for a living - they are entitled to have an income from the proceeds of sales and such.

    As this forum originates from within the country of Denmark, Danish law comes into play initially. The Danes are quite protective about copyright issues and as we are considered an international forum the copyright laws of all countries are respected, keeping in mind that some countries do allow such things as ignoring copyright laws of other countries, however the majority of countries have and enforce copyright laws and regulations, so, we too will do the same on this site.

    I've banned people from the forum for direct violation of a copyright law ... we are that serious.

    I feel that the original poster is expecting too much ... and as I said there are pieces of music that will never be in the public domain until I have been turned to dust and another 300 years passes in time. I can accept that and if I need it that bad I pay the piper and get a legal copy that I can add to my library and be proud of having it.

    Hmmm! And a stereo Hmmm! I'm feeling sad, reading this Krummhorn.

    That's partly because I was watching some others using their computers,
    at a computer store, teaching a couple of customers how to work some programs.
    They're calling downloading tunes for free "ripping them", what the program is saying,
    and I know that comes from ripping you off.
    That can only be seen as a predatory, international attempt at cultural dominance,
    giving the stars away to pick your pocket when it comes time to pay.

    I have a domain that is a political and criminal tool, and it makes me feel that way.
    All this computer stuff, really nice stuff, is all around me here, and I own it.
    Do I watch YouTube through my big screen TV. No!
    Do I download videos and music to a disc? No!
    Do I use my backup DVD player to put up bike-hike photos for paintings? No!
    Do I print out anything offline? No!
    Do I ever want a cell phone or hand-held? No!
    I buy C.D.'s, getting my own player five years ago, heavy into cassettes since 1972.
    And C.D.'s are free or ten cents or a dollar at the most, no new C.D. store in this city.

    You are still too polite, Krummhorn.
    When you say the original poster is expecting too much, yeah,
    he was, setting us off so he can sit back and enjoy the responses,
    some of his seeming to goad you, sensing strange satisfactions.

    I can imagine that his attention here will fade as our attention does.

    One of the best musical things I ever did was when I was in high school.
    Sure, I loved Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, George Benson and Santana,
    but I wanted to be a lead guitarist and play the music I liked from TV,
    Stevie Wonder, all the wonderful songs from movies,
    so I wrote a letter to a New York music house,
    wanting to buy songs in the original keys:
    the theme from The Sandpiper, "The Shadow of Your Smile", by Johnny Mandel,
    "The Days of Wine and Roses", music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by Johnny Mandel,
    "Misty" by Errol Garner, one of my favorite instrumentals,
    written by an organist who didn't know how to read and write music,
    "Sonata in C flat minor", by Ludwig Van Beethoven, still liking his hair,
    and for my girlfriend,
    the love theme from "Romeo and Juliet", a number one Billboard pop hit,
    adapted by Henry Mancini from Nino Rota's original score.

    yes, I was singing those and playing them on guitar as a teen,
    because, when I was twelve, I was trying to play them on harmonica,
    and sing the notes I couldn't hit.
    Standing in line with my parents at banks, supermarkets and our church,
    I'd be humming and singing these sad, adult movie songs,
    and my parents always enjoyed the reactions from other adults.
    They hired a professional, David Gross, to play our new Hammond organ,
    and run the choir. I was lead soprano. I can still sing like that.
    I call it my tender little baby heart voice.

    I'm not typing this as an example of what I could do,
    if you shared some personal music frustration,
    because you haven't.
    Don't be shy!

    You might be an organist playing a B3 with a drummer.
    You might be an organist with a home entertainment center.
    You might be an organist playing in a church.
    You might be an organist playing in a big cathedral.
    You might be an organist playing in an arena.
    You might be an organist for the nuclear organ for peace,
    but,
    if you've never held the strings and felt all the vibrations,
    in your hands and moving about in the air around you,
    holding a '60 to '64 Fender Stratocaster, tuned scientifically with an oscilloscope,
    all frequencies aligned, so all the effects blend and build together,
    through a 100 watt Marshall head with one four twelve cabinet on top,
    and an eighteen inch organ speaker cabinet for the bottom, like Jimi did,
    pre-amp on 3, mains on 8, with an MXR 45 phase shifter,
    a Dallas Arbiter "fuzz face", using reverb and a deeper slow rate echo,
    getting that soft, soft floating sound with so much tonal movements,
    where you can add flattened pitch shifts by pressing down on the tremolo arm,
    holding that with your pick hand,
    as loud if not louder than any symphony,

    you really don't know how it feels to play Moonlight Sonata.

    B jo does NOT stand for that, it is an initial and another part of my name shortened.
    I often use this tag and no one has ever mentioned that reference to me before.

    I offered money as I was willing to pay to find this piece of music.

    Music can reach a place in me,
    Take my mind on a journey,
    Reach a distance that skydiving from the moon in scuba gear to the bottom of Atlantis could not match
    I want to explore where / what this piece of music has to offer.
    I need to find it first though

    Who will help me?

    Update: this thread has been viewed by 731 people since it went up, and additional 392 people since March 20th. It is getting exposure and as of this date no real answers.

    Again I say, some things in life just aren't available at any price. I can't change that, you can't change that, our members can't change that. It happens and we must accept it. I have a wish list of many pieces that have been out of print for decades and know that they will never become available within my lifetime. I can accept that and there isn't thing one I or anyone else can do about it.

    I feel for you - I really do - and I feel your frustration. If it isn't out there it just isn't out there. As to why your emails were not answered heaven only knows; sometimes a little more persistence might get a response from those you wrote to.
