He’s so old he probably can’t remember what music is his and what he heard somewhere else. Just came upon an uncredited piece that IS the Jurassic Park theme in an audio book track called “Gods of the Greek myths - Artemis,” (1957). He is so old he might have written this piece as well. If it is from Stravinsky as someone said, then perhaps this one motif just gets stuck in your head. Also... It is pretty hard to be an original composer with only 12 notes in the chromatic scale. (See: Ecclesiastes 1:9)
