“All about that bass” was one of the biggest hits in 2014. The song is lyrically ambitious with a melody in vintage style. This tune is a proper “bubblegum pop” song.
The edition presents the entire band. The melody appears in most of the parts during the arrangement.
The bass-group has a central role, and must play with precision and power. Watch the balance in the refrain where the lower part must shine through.

He grew up in a family where everyone played in the local wind-band. Idar attended the Universities of Trondheim and Oslo, where he studied composition on Master-degree level. His production spans from music for beginning band via chamber-music pieces to symphonies for band and solo-concertos. Idar is also active as conductor for bands all over Norway, and as a lecturer and teacher on courses arranged by the Norwegian Band Federation.
