"We've certainly talked about that, and I'm happy and willing to do it," he confirms. "J.J. Abrams, who will be the director, seems excited about the idea. I have to say that J.J. is a much younger man than I, but I will try to keep up with him as much as I can!"
This is one of JW's best interviews, I think. It's rare that he goes so in depth about a score (ie mentions the effect of the electronics referencing bombs in Cambodia). I wish he did this type of thing for more scores, and for longer periods of time. Thanks for posting!
I'd like to hear more prominent but accompaniement piano parts, like in Snowy's theme. I love a solo piano, but I feel a lot of times people forget that it can be very effective in supporting or interacting with other sections of the orchestra.
Did I mention I love the use of Dies Irae in this score? Clever, Mr. Williams, very clever. But I didn't know that before reading the liner notes.
Probably one of my favorite uses. I especially like how after the church scene Williams incorporates Carol of the Bells into "Setting the Trap." Its use has so much more meaning than I originally thought.
