  1. Are you thinking of 'The Fleet Enters Hyperspace'? ('The Fleet Goes Into Hyperspace' for those of us who grew up with the anthology box set.) Same key, even! Enharmonically, that is.
  2. Aww, that's a shame! Should have spent those life savings to get The BFG FYC...
  3. Anyone happen to know what ever came of this? I sure hope no one paid that kind of money for these. I took a look and the parts are not ones from the original sessions, but just a handwritten version of the first Star Wars suite. The original main title parts would have the (ultimately unused) quarter note pickup into measure 1. I guess this was used before Fox Fanfare Music published the first typeset version?
  4. @The Illustrious Jerry That link appears to be expired. It goes to a page that has an ‘Accept Link’ button, but then it redirects and says ‘invalid or expired invite’.

  6. Exactly. What “Every theme you’ve heard” really means here is “every theme I can remember”. In my experience, most musicians, unless they happen to be serious Star Wars or John Williams nerds, only know maybe 5 or 6 themes from the series. He’s not sitting there at the sessions with Frank Lehman’s list of Star Wars motifs and crossing them off one-by-one.
  7. Remember, you heard it here first: The Bangles — She's a Rock and Roll Heart I Don't Like It Eternally Cool Riff & Kite And then she came back to Earth Lil Jimmy You Won't Find a Slumbering Cat in the Dark Ponytail (Single Mix) I Need A Miracle Dance and Dance It's Your Best Sleep Ever What Is This, Mister?

  8. Tried a John Williams quote, and ended up with this interview excerpt: "Music is so rewarding. So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it's gratifying to have something you have done linger in people's memories. I am so lucky to be working in a field that you never grow tired of. I was never that into the movies. I've been to a lot of them but never in the movie theater. And for me, it's just part of the fun."I ask about playing the violin. "Yeah," he says.He does.How did you get your start in a recording industry?"My mom, who is a jazz pianist, took me to hear Charlie Parker. When we walked in after the show, Charlie Parker was playing a show and he stopped and gave me a warm handshake. He just gave me one. One. That was about the first contact I had in an industry where music meant something. He was the best. I couldn't believe it. And that's when I heard music in the theater. I was just 12 years old and my mom was in the room. She played and I was blown away by the way musicians played and I was blown away by this beautiful music." Ok, one more: John Towner Williams (born February 8, 1932) is an American composer, conductor, and pianist. Widely regarded as one of the greatest American composers of all time, he has composed some of the most popular, recognizable, and critically acclaimed film scores in cinematic history in a career spanning over six decades. Williams has composed for many critically acclaimed and popular movies, including the Star Wars series, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Superman, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the Indiana Jones series, the first two Home Alone films, Hook, the first two Jurassic Park films, Schindler's List, and the first three Harry Potter films.[1] He has been associated with director Steven Spielberg since 1974, composing music for all but five of his feature films. Williams has won several Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Awards, several Grammys, nine Grammy Awards, and two Tony Awards.[2]. He has achieved considerable success in the film composing business. He composed scores for both The Godfather (1981) and Batman (1989-1990), two movies that also received huge box-office returns and which have become legendary in popular culture, both of which earned more than $1 billion and $636 million respectively.[3] In 2005 in an interview, Williams said that he was disappointed that most critics didn't appreciate his music. His works include scores for Disney's Disney, Disney 2.0, DreamWorks, and many others, his most acclaimed score for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom is Upon Me, and his score for the Harry Potter films. His compositions were initially released in four versions: one with the title "Indiana Jones and the World of Adventures", and three with the title "The World of Magic", and are now distributed as two CDs. He and Spielberg are often linked by their collaboration in creating the animated feature Jaws, which was based on a screenplay by Spielberg.[2] Williams's score for Jurassic Park was directed by Spielberg, and many consider it one of his finest films.[3] Williams wrote many operatic pieces, all of which have since been widely distributed outside of Hollywood. Other popular operatic pieces include The Marriage Dance, A Day in Early Spring, The Taming of the Shrew, Love of an Old Man, The Lady's Dream, and The Seduces of the Dukes. Williams is also noted for composing the themes for Harry Potter films and has designed the sets and costume for them. He is also considered an official writer of the first two films in the Harry Potter series. The themes of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have been used by many different movie directors. The Hunger Games theme has inspired an animated short film, 'The Hunger Games: The First Day' by the Disney Corporation, which is still played on Disney theme day.
  9. The easiest way is to go to this site and type a few existing track titles, and it will try to predict what should come next: https://talktotransformer.com/ It will try to continue whatever text you give it, so it doesn't necessarily have to be a list of things. You'll end up with a fair amount of gibberish, but also some decent suggestions, so copy and paste those and run it again, and you can change up the titles you typed in. So, here's your new favorite Harry Potter cues! I got all these just from trying: Harry's Wondrous World The Chamber of Secrets Buckbeak's Flight Whomping Willow Hedwig's Theme Lunchtime, 9am - The Wizard's Mansion Teddy's Visit to the Great Room Nymphadora Potions Malfoy's Wedding Jingle the Morning Bell Dinwiddie's Theme Scary Speculations A Scalding Lake ...And My Father's A Witch! Wandering with Harry Pip's Tale All Hail the Dragon and the Wolf at Last The Witch of the Woods Maggie the Snow-Carrier Luna's Voice In The Snow I'm No Longer a Wizard, I Am a Stranger, I Have Been Wandering The Mountain The End of the Wizarding World Trolloc's Dream The Scary Tales Of Pansy Marsh The Hall of Magical Memories
  10. Well, where else do you think you’d find the maze of the Sith?
  11. So, being a John Williams fan and software engineer, I wanted to see what would happen if I fed Star Wars track titles from all 8 existing soundtracks into a neural net, and now I have this AI-generated track list for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: Main Title and The Journey Begins Rey, Finn, or Poe R2’s Theme The Jedi Knight of the Resistance A-1’s and Their Friends First Lightsaber The Force is With Us Space Pirate Chewbacca’s Return Tales of Two Worlds Endor (Tarkin’s Theme) Anakin’s Dance Maze of the Sith Starfighter Mission Fury of the Emperor The Final Battle Return from the Nexus A New Dawn and Finale What do you think? Some of these actually sound fairly plausible…
