    filmmusic got a reaction from crumbs in The Rise of Skywalker - For Your Consideration (FYC) Album Discussion   
    Someone mentioned before that the new theme, sounded like nothing before.
    Well, I played it on and on in my mind, and i think that its first phrase at least, is a clever mirror rearrangement of Luke's theme.
    here's what I'm talking about:
     
    New TROS theme:
    a) falling fifth
    b) rising three notes
    c) falling minor seventh
     
    Luke's theme
    a) rising fifth
    b) falling three notes
    c) rising minor seventh
     
    edit: forgot to mention that the 2 appearances in Rescue and Farewell, are in the same tonality too with Luke's theme.

    Well spotted! That's interesting because Han's theme from Solo is a clever mirror rearrangement, too.
     
     
    There's a harp flourish at 3:10 which sounds out of place from the rest of the orchestra. It doesn't actually play it but it is based on the same harmony as the rising and falling theme.

    filmmusic reacted to Disco Stu in Olympic Fanfare and Theme - New Jazz Arrangement by Miho Hazama   
    This jazz big band arrangement of Williams' classic Olympic theme is really fascinating in how it deconstructs and completely re-imagines the piece from the ground up.
     
     
    1:31 - 1:54 is really cool and interesting in its re-setting of the main fanfare.
     
    And by the way, the album this is from is nominated for a Grammy for Best Large Ensemble Jazz Album.
     
    Here's a quote from Hazama about it:

    Just a suggestion: put the link to this post on the first post of the thread, so that it'll be easier to access it whenever people are listening to the album. When I was listening to the album for a second time, I had to scroll it through pages and pages of discussion until I found it.

    filmmusic reacted to Ludwig in General Harmony/Orchestration/Theory Questions   
    One more solution I would suggest that might be right for you. In a published article of mine on film music themes, have a look at the theme from E.T., Example 30.
     
    There I use a hybrid of classical and jazz symbols, and there's a chord that's very similar to yours: an inverted dominant 7th chord with a 9th (bar 2). Instead of putting the literal interval for the inverted 9th, I just put V4/2 (add9). And I realize it's not proper for either notation to do this (for jazz, add9 would mean there's no 7th, and for classical, you wouldn't have both inverted and uninverted symbols in the same chord), but I felt it got the point across more quickly and clearly than anything else, especially when I wanted to show a more classical perspective with Roman numerals, something like yourself. And none of the readers who reviewed the article complained about it, which is telling.
     
    So the answer is, there is no answer. But that's the best I can come up with.

    filmmusic got a reaction from Ricard in How many periods/stages would you divide Williams' music into?   
    There is an interesting 1991 John Caps article ("John Williams: Scoring the Central line") that divides Williams' periods as follows:
    a) his jazz and comedy apprentiship beginning with Checkmate (1959) and ending with A Guide for the Married man (1967)
    b) apparent transition into serious scoring with the Reivers (1969) culminating in Jaws (1975)
    c) unprecedent reign as the most successful film composer in history from Star Wars (1977) to E.T. (1982)
    d) his gradual mellowing in later 1980s into a refined romanticism which was sentimental in Accidental Tourist (1988), peaceful and tempo-less like New Age dream in Always (1989), pianistic and ceremonial in Presumed Innocent (1990).
