    Star Wars Prequel Music Resource (part 2)

    Some interesting discussions about the AOTC score over here. Up until today, it’s still kinda unbelievable how badly edited the score for AOTC was: the looping, the tracked music on places where it wasn’t needed at all. The edit during the 2nd part of the meadow picnic is quite absurd and I still don’t get it why they didn’t use the original transition from the fire place scene to the “rainy ramp” scene. I have another question. In the movie, the transition between “Visiting prime minister” & “first kiss” contains some tracked music form the beginning of that cue. Could it be that the original transition is heard at the beginning of the “extended Naboo arrival” deleted scene? It contains some music I can’t really place and continues with the music heard at the island retreat balcony. I’ve been wondering this for some time.

    Hello

    Thanks! It depends on the subject really. I try to use as much variation as possible. For strings I like to use Memoirs of a Geisha/Schindler's list/Far and Away, for brass & woodwinds mostly Star Wars/Indaian Jones/The Terminal, for celesta Home Alone/Harry Potter... Most of the time my students know the music and are really surprised that it's all been written by one guy. Around christmas, we always sing "somewhere in my memory", which they really like. And in one group, I do some thematic classes around film scores, in which we watch Last Crusade and discuss the music (themes - functions of music...). After we've done that, they have to pick one movie themselves and do a little review of the film score. They really enjoy doing that. Welcome, How big is your class? Thanks! It depends on what group I teach, usually around 15 - 25 pupils or so.
  3. Some John Barry Bond scores like Moonraker, You Only Live Twice. The Prince of Tides from James Newton Howard.

    SCORE: The Terminal (John Williams, 2004)

    Nice review. I have been listening a lot to the Terminal lately. As said above, the love theme really stands out. Apart from that I really like the nostalgic music (the homesickness cue?) after the national anthem of Krakozhia and a that small, but very sweet cue just before the bridal march in the wedding of officer Torres track (around 3:50). And the fountain scene is some great relaxing music!

    Hello

    Hello! I’m from Belgium (Europe), 27 years old and a fan of film scores, John Williams’ scores in particular. I’m a music teacher in a high school and use a lot of soundtracks in my classes. Obviously, there’s a picture of John Williams on the class wall! Apart from that, I play the piano and from time to time, I like to write a bit of music. I found out about this place some years ago and thought I’d finally join the discussions.
