    Some Ideas for Adaptation to Pipe Organ

    1. many of John Williams's classic music scores from the 1970's and 1980's as: ET, Superman, Jaws, etc.

    2. John Carpenter's "Halloween" motion picture musical score: the haunting and all-too-familiar theme is in 5/4 time!!! How often is 5/4 rendered on the Queen of Instruments? Halloween music is most appropriately rendered on organ.

    3. Indiana Jones theme

    Are there any organists who have recorded such renditions?

    Some have rendered Star Wars score music on pipes.

    Many electronic instruments mimic Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, Wagner and Vivaldi

    How about if the centuries-old pipe organ mimicked the artificial instrumentation of "Halloween" (movies). John Carpenter should have called for genuine organ music, originally: only would sound so natural. Halloween and organ music are as inseparable as bread and butter.

    These are my pipe dreams yet to be heard.

    Cameron Carpenter has done some of these. Raiders of the Lost Ark is here, done on the Trinity Church, Wall Street organ in NYC.

    Amateur musicians practice until they get it right ...
    fessional musicians practice until they can't get it wrong ...
