    The STAR WARS Main Title

    Thanks so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it! The difference is very much intentional - we're experimenting with ways of distinguishing the spotting session episodes from the commentary, etc so are trying more of an editorial approach with these and then embracing more informal conversation for the other episodes. I hope it'll feel like a sort of balanced meal once the whole series is finished, but we definitely want to get feedback on how it's coming across. Thanks so much! This week's episode is a brief little intermission between our 2 part cue-by-cue analysis:
  4. Absolutely terrific - what a gift of an article!

    Thanks Jerry!
  7. I so love Art of the Score! Looking forward to exploring TFA at some point on UnderScore

    The STAR WARS Main Title

    Thank you! So pleased you're enjoying the show :) We posted the next episode in our STAR WARS arc just this morning. It's what we call Spotting Session, where we explore each and every cue in context (today's episode is part 1 of 2). This may be where we test the limits of a more in-depth musical analysis. ๐Ÿ™ƒEnjoy!

    Thanks for listening! Really interesting take! There's something about the playing in the original film (particularly the trombones) and the near-clipping of the recording on the downbeat that's always phenomenal to me. ๐Ÿ˜ŠAnd as you say, the performance & staging of the orchestra in TESB - brilliant ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    Indeed I quite like Terry Johns' account as well. https://www.hornsociety.org/295-newsletter/991-terry-johns-interview Also really fascinating to hear David Cripps (principal Horn of the LSO at the time) speaking of the sessions. We wanted to speak with him as well, but alas couldn't come across good contact information. Thanks for listening!

    The STAR WARS Main Title

    On the latest episode of UnderScore, we sat down with Alan Snelling, assistant engineer to Eric Tomlinson on Star Wars (as well as Raiders, Superman and the rest of the original trilogy), who shared some wonderful recollections of the historic first recording of the Main Title. The remainder of the episode is a near hour-long musical exploration into the composition, orchestration and storytelling power of that infamous minute and a half of music. Enjoy! [This is the second episode in a six-part series on the score]
  13. You're too kind ๐Ÿ˜Š- thanks so much for listening. We're relieved and thrilled to be back up and running. Can't wait to share what's ahead for Star Wars. We actually chatted with Alan Snelling (assistant Engineer to Eric Tomlinson) who shared some really touching moments from the session that we'll be sharing throughout the SW episodes. Hope you like it!
  14. A little late to the party, but that piece ('Out of This World') was actually composed by Benjamin Wallfisch, writing library music under a pseudonym (Lasker being an old family name - his grandmother was the great cellist Anita Lasker-Wallfisch). Years ago a friend had shared the score & recording (it does read Wallfisch on the conductor score). Thanks thx for sharing - I'd never been able to track down the actual library release
  15. Many thanks! Very much agree - I suppose the survival of any art form requires advocates in each new generation. We're all just fortunate that so much of Williams' work is connected to such cultural mainstays and likely to live on and on. Here's hoping new generations find their way to the likes of Herrmann, Steiner, Waxman - whatever the path (podcasts, YouTube). Thanks thx!
