In Topic: Williams starts scoring Episode VII in two (!) weeks..?

31 October 2014 - 06:58 PM

So we have at least these combinations to speculate on:

  1. John Williams travels to London to score the film with LSO
  2. The LSO is brought to US to score the film (JW conducts)
  3. John Williams scores the film at US with a studio orchestra
  4. The score is recorded at London by the LSO with someone else conducting and Williams supervising the process

And while the sound of one symphony orchestra might not be readily distinguishable from another to most people, I am sure all the people involved, including LSO, would like to continue their association with this franschise.


Perhaps another option would be for John Williams to conduct a renowned American orchestra in the US, like using the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for Lincoln instead of a studio orchestra. If that is the case, my bet is the BSO given his relationship and history with them.


Obviously, my preference is a LSO conducted score though.

We should all record our own birthday wishes for JW's birthday in February, edit them together and send it to him.

Amazing actor. Almost stole the show in TGTBTU from Eastwood. RIP.



If I live to be his age, I'll die in 2082 and ET will be 100 years old :eek:

... and JW will have just finished scoring Indiana Jones and The Mysterious Blu-Ray, and Star Wars: Episode 32

In Topic: Can you remember/name your 10 first soundtracks?

My very first soundtrack was Tomorrow Never Dies. I bought Barry's 60's Bond scores soon after.

My first Williams soundtrack was Jurassic Park, followed by The Last Crusade and then Jaws.

This is low down on my list of holy grails, but it is still a holy grail all the same. Looking forward to it.
