Hi!

I've been busy remaking my webpages, and now I've uploaded some of the arrangements that I've done, for solo piano and for other instruments.

I recently played the "Jurassic Park" theme at a ceremony and made a (rather difficult) arrangement myself. You can download it for free on my webpage, along with some jazz transcriptions and other music.

Thanks for sharing. Do you have a recording of you playing the Jurassic park theme or a midi version? I’d love to hear it, I’d love to play but that looks like a very advanced arrangement of it.

Lots of irregular runs in there!

Of course I hope that you'll take a look at my other compositions on my page as well (sound and sheet music).

The arrangement is advanced and not easy, but definitely playable. The irregular runs is not the most difficult challenge - the many jumps and position changes are. It was inspired by two other arrangements that I found on youtube. I didn't feel like those were optimal so I wanted to arrange it myself. I hope some of you will play it and post a recording!

Since the theme keeps on repeating but in increasingly complex variations, you could just play the first few iterations of the theme.

I like the look of Serenade by Ole Olsen & yourself.

I’ll try both parts; not at the same time obviously.

I had never heard of Olsen before. I assume he’s out of copyright now as he died in 1927.

Good work Karstein.

Sure, it just struck out to me as a bit unusual. The arrangement doesn't look too hard based on what I've seen, as it's quite idiomatic with a lot of arpeggios and chords, but you can never say for sure until you play it.

The Ole Olsen pieces are originally for solo piano, and are quite nice - sounds good and not hard to play. Similar to Grieg in style.

Since you bring up copyright - I'm probably not allowed to publish Jurassic Park. However I thought it would be ok since:
- it's already possible to find many arrangements of this work online
- I'm not trying to sell it, just sharing a work I did
- The copyright owners (whoever they are) would probably not care as I'm thinking they already earn a ton of money off of this music as it is.

But I'll of course take it down if I receive a request about it.

The jazz transcriptions should be ok as copyright on those recordings has expired.
