    Adding choir lyrics to existing Star Wars pieces

    What were the lyrics and who wrote them?
  2. JW fandom is delivering such great content these days. We are living in a blessed time.

    New JW Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Music!!

    I would add that this sounds like a purposefully condensed excerpt of a longer piece.

    New JW Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Music!!

    It's pretty good. The main motif is ok, it reminds me a bit of Indiana Jones traveling across a desert and discovering ancient ruins or something. The orchestration is nice and bright but beyond a general "behold this awesome view!" feeling, it doesn't seem to express much.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    I can't get over how amazing this new arrangement is. I can't wait for an official studio recording release some day. I hope Leia's Theme is among the 10 new arrangements JW wrote for ASM.
  6. In TFA the binary sunset rendition comes at the very end of the film when Rey takes Luke's lightsaber out and holds it in front of him. The music for when Rey uses the force to get the lightsaber is tracked from Burning Homestead, not binary sunset. In ESB, the binary sunset-like rendition of the force theme occurs when Luke reaches out to Leia thru the force and she tells Chewbacca to turn the Falcon around.

    Very excited for even new JW arrangements of his past work specifically for violin and orchestra.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    Listening to it more, the new darkness JW expresses in this arrangement reminds me of the new version of Han and Leia's theme. It sounds like JW stripped away all the sweeping romance of the original Love Theme and replaces it with more conflict and tragedy.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    Wow, there are some very heavy string passages that I did not see coming. Very interesting, powerful new arrangement. Seems almost oppressive in feeling.
  10. This tune is giving me major flashbacks to some other pretty familiar soundtrack theme/tune but I can't place my finger on it. Anyone have any ideas? I thought it was Edward Scissorhands but I just checked and it's not.
  11. My playlist is a mix between the OST and FYC album. Pretty simple and I try to cut out tracks that go nowhere like "The Rathars!"
  12. I always understood it as everyone involved trying to reproduce the dry, punchy, brass-leaning, slightly bare sound of the original Star Wars. TLJ is much more lush and consistent with modern JW sound mixes.
  13. I disagree with the thought that the March of the Resistance, played mournfully, should be considered Holdo's theme. To me it is simply the March of the Resistance played mournfully because that matches the emotional content of the scene it scores. I do agree that there is a rhythmic structure that is repeated in a couple places before Holdo's Sacrifice that kind of previews the big, climatic music accompanying Holdo's big moment.

    Favorite Star Wars finale and end credits music?

    I think the fact that JW had so much time and yet didn't write an original end credits suite is secretly a sign that he just didn't enjoy scoring the movie that much. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    Markings is excellent and I look forward to listening to an official recording.
