Haha wow sorry wouldn't have asked if I knew you would be a dick about it. For most people on the site it's not a very hard request, considering the fact that you don't need to watch the film, you just need to be familiar with the soundtracks which I would have assumed you were.

 

Apologies, I wasn't trying to be a dick, that's just how I talk. I am familiar with the scores, I just don't have the time to go through everything. I doubt anyone here would be able to give you exact timestamps just from memory, unless they had an extreme case of Asperger's.

Nobody gives timestamps from memory. And we know not everyone has access to the music during the whole day.

 

So it is just a matter of arriving home, puting the CD or open itunes, play the track and tell us one example where to find the theme you mentioned.....

The entire score to the series 3 final Zero Hour was recorded with live musicians and I think it's some of the best music of the entire series, and through the use of live musicians I think it stands well with John Williams' film scores. I mean, just listen to the Kanan and Ezra cue, with its beautiful blending of a classic John Williams theme and the theme for Ezra. It may just be me (well, very likely just me), but I can see this fitting really well into one of the original films. (Please don't hate me for my probably insanely high praise of it)

It definitely stood out to me more than usual, the opening notes almost reminded me vaguely of late 90s on Goldsmith

well I mean of course it'd fit well into one of the original films seeing as how most of the piece is recycled note for note from ANH. the fact it was a live orchestra immediately stood out to me and it was a nice change that highlighted a rather dramatic episode and the music had some highlights but also at times it delved into generic kind of action music and I lost interest. I also heard that Kevin Kiner is not the only composer for Star Wars Rebels, but that other music has been provided from other sources. do you know if that's true or not?

It is true. Kevin's (I assume) son's also wrote music along with a few others.

Yeah, obviously there's Kevin Kiner but there's also his two sons Sean and Dean (Sean started working on series 2 while Dean on series 3), David Glen Russell (also worked on Clone Wars), Takeshi Furukawa (also worked on Clone Wars) - although I've only seen him credited for 1 cue on the first series, Matthew St. Laurent (also worked on Clone Wars), and Jared Forman.
