ARRANGING

As well as a composer, I am an experienced arranger (about 25 years of experience), providing well-written scores and parts for orchestras, bigbands, string and wind groups, rhythm sections, voices and more. 


Arranging gigs can be of different levels of creativity - from transcription over orchestration to practically co- or re-composing everything. I can more or less adapt to any style - and I love the challenge of working out what will enhance your specific project. In addition, I can offer connection to musicians/orchestras and studios, and direct/conduct rehearsals, performance or recording. Feel free to contact me for a talk about possibilities. 


Here are a few examples of my arrangements. See more on my composer page and bands/projects page
