  2. That also lines up a bit with the story Williams recalls from working on the film. Evidently, when he watched the first cut, he told Lucas that he was going to need a much worse composer than him for the job.

  4. Oh wow, they're already recording the score! Guess that's why Williams didn't score it, Spielberg must want both his films wrapped before Christmas (maybe barring VFX revisions for RPO). Nice of Williams to drop by the sessions though, just to add another layer of stress to Silvestri's job. Nice of Silvestri to address comments on his social media too: rojas_gustyyFirst time with spielberg as director how would have been the experience? alan.silvestri_music@rojas_gustyy amazing

  8. Absolutely, it's probably the strongest stretch of music in the film. It's just that instantly recognizable, effortless John Williams in Star Wars mode writing we all know and love. Not one moment under or overscored; just a superb selection of music right to the end of the credits. Very glad Williams gave us the entirety of the finale unedited on the OST (unlike all the terrible edits in the glorious ROTS finale).

  10. Love seeing that track get some love. This & the one immediately after (Farewell & the Trip) are my favorites on the entire TFA soundtrack. The movie goes thru a whole series of emotional beats in rapid succession during those tracks, and the music just flows effortlessly in support of each one. JW at his most masterful, IMO.

  12. https://www.bso.org/brands/tanglewood/features/2018-tanglewood-season/2018-season-highlights.aspx Tickets on sale January 28 at 10 a.m. In addition to those three concerts: Note that the cello piece will premiere on August 19, conducted by Nelsons. When it is performed at the Bernstein Centennial concert that will be its second performance. Presumably Williams will conduct it then, although technically all we know is that he'll conduct something in that centennial concert.

  13. Bes, you're more JWfan Select. Honestly, though, top marks for trying to watch that film. It's not an easy experience, nor is listening to the OST. I saw my doctor, last week. He said "You've got six months to live". I said "I want a second opinion". He said " O.k., you're also ugly".

  15. Amazingly enough, I picked this up, barely used, at Camden Market last week for three pounds. It had a five pound sticker on it but as I was looking at it the guy immediately said three. So of course it was a no brainer. The funny thing was there was another sticker on the back that said $7.00, so apparently this disc has made the rounds and somehow landed here from America. This was always one of my favourite scores (I think at one time it was always one of everyone's favourite scores), so I was really happy to get this, especially since I didn't know it even existed. Most of the major stuff is on the OST, and I think most of the "new" cues I hadn't heard before are more atmospheric, but it makes listening to the entire album a much more satisfying experience.

  19. Does Incident at Islar Nublar score a chase scene? I thought it scores the opening raptor scene and then when Ellie and Muldoon search around the T-Rex paddock before the actual T-Rex chase scene.

  25. I wish they had this discussion a year ago when I was writing my essay. Although, I agree @publicist this discussion seems so tame and lacks any in-depth inquiry about the issue, although you can definitely sense that Desplat is more pissed off. It also doesn't help when Zimmer comes out and says the industry doesn't have studio interference when it comes to scoring, the heart of most of these issues, of composers being ousted and rewrites is often entirely because of studio interference, test screenings and studio screenings/focus groups all have a say in the score, let alone what a director wants. We'll never get any in-depth discussions because these composers have laser sights pointed directly at their temples waiting for them to say it was something far more innocuous than simply 'creative differences'. For now it's the spectacle of the current big names talking about their woes.

  26. I'm feeling strangely confident that Kylo will have a new/expanded theme, rather than just his two separate ideas in TFA. Williams will roll them together to bring it closer with Imperial March, but with greater 'hesitancy' and without the brash confidence of a march.

  29. I just fundamentally disagrees him him calling other composers egotistical just because they want to create something new.. Sure, some franchises absolutely needs continuity, but most franchises do not. Composers want to create their own theme, so they can forge their own identities and their own paths of success. I mean, is that egotistical or just the normal desire of an artist? Elfman didn't use the 1960s batman theme did he? Times change and styles change too. Is using color egotistical because the original film is black and white?

  30. Hello my name is Paul Klusman I'm known for a series of cat videos on YouTube starting with "An Engineer's Guide to Cats" and others. I'm working on a cat video of Star Wars ep. IV A New Hope and I need to contact Mr. John Williams for permission to use his composition in my video. I'm not using the original theatrical recordings but instead I am singing - "meowing" the melodies and using it as underlying music in my video. I would like to use the exact melodies rather than skewing them as a parody. I know this is a long shot but does anyone have a way to contact Mr Williams quickly? The video is nearly done and I'd like to release it on YouTube in a week or so. Thanks so much, Paul Klusman

  31. The Journey Home is one of my favorites from TFA. I'm curious as to why they would use alternates/unused music from TFA in Star Tours especially when the other TFA music seem to be direct from the soundtrack. The OT music sounds a bit different, too.

  35. The Batman theme is all over the film, to the point where I feel like other themes are even influenced by it. It’s cool. Honestly, yes, the score is rough. But you know what? It’s a step in the right direction and I’m glad it exists.

  40. I actually really like Revenge of the Sith. Sure, it doesn't have the polish of the first three films and it does have some structural problems, but overall some of the best dramatic beats of the series are in there. I also voted for for it as best score. I really like the dramatic effect of the choir, and while the application here feels less organic than The Phantom Menace and is certainly more deriviative of Lord of the Rings - it's still effective.

  41. I think the cue is one of the very few instances where Williams didn't write the cue "around" the dialogue, but let the music score the feeling of the scene in a sort of Morricone-like approach, something he did very rarely. By consequence, you can sense a bit more the mixing console faders going up and down when dialogue comes in, so to speak.
