Noten für BlasorchesterPuls
The versatile Norwegian guitarist and composer Knut Reiersrud has worked with many different musicians and artists throught the years. What particularly caught my ear was his collaboration with organ player Iver Kleive and saxophone player/producer Bendik Hofseth. 3 tunes played by these fine musicians form the basis of my arrangement: Hit me with your fingerpicks, Tramp and The barber"s pulse. Puls (Pulse) premiered at Siddis Brass 2003 and was the last piece of the performance of Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag. It can be a quite daunting task to arrange or write a "finisher", I think. What I tried to do was: Use the Reiersrud material quite freely and make sort of a variation-type build up where key, meter and tempo changes all seek towards a big climax at the end. The arrangement features both soloists and sections of the band and includes some choreography that enhances the music.
