  1. I feel like it's gotten so ingrained in my ear now that I'm going to need that whole piece whether it's Williams or not! 😂
  2. Oddly enough, the material from this score reminds me more of TLJ than TFA - aside from thematic material of course, but then again there's not much of the thematic material from TLJ that would make sense to have here. I don't know whether it's the instrumentation or the harmonic structures, but I get a huge blend of TLJ and TFA, leaning more towards TLJ. (It should be noted that I have a form of synesthesia, though, so it could just be a weird thing tied to that)
  3. Okay, I have admittedly not looked at any track titles or posts outside of the first - is there any way someone can take these and just randomize the order so that I can listen to the tracks completely out of any chronological context? Haha
  4. Yep, a more-edited version of their very first rewatch video, with what seems to be more cobbled material towards the beginning/ middle of the piece, again in a different (but same as the first rewatch video) key than what seems like the ending of a concert arrangement (the one from the ANH rewatch and the Bell commercial).
  5. Great catch! I really do think these are altered bits and pieces of actual TROS material. I think even the Leia harmonic progression idea stems from the score as well, I can definitely see him using it to form new material for this film with all things considered based on JJ's comments about her role and now very numerous different ways and versions of it we've heard. It's easy for me to be skeptical, but I think it's about the time things start coming together from enough different sources to make some educated assumptions. Hopefully even more clues will come out since they just started their tv spots yesterday as well!
  6. I clip the audio and run it through some filters in ProTools. I do like this music, whatever it turns out to be! If nothing else it's fun to follow each week to pass the time.
  7. This all feels pretty suspicious...first they use completely new music one week, then rearrangements the next, instead of just using music or arrangements of music tied to those respective movies each week. It's definitely a major-mode interpretation that has new instrumentation and is actually blended with the Leia progression from the trailers, with a hint of her motif played as an echo before Jedi Steps transitions right into it full-on. This stuff may not be right from the score but I definitely think there are musical ideas present that we'll listen back on in a couple of months and see some clear connections. What they do for subsequent weeks' videos should be interesting to hear!
  8. I'm aaalllmost 100% on this being cuts/edits of a real TLJ track, they're using different edits of music that doesn't contain any existing star wars themes (as most made-for-trailer music does) - could always be wrong, but going with my gut on this one haha
  9. Just a quick note, since that second use of the piece is a different cut, it also has new material in it in the beginning, and you can hear the string rhythm isn't as edited at the beginning either...
  10. Granted, I've worked as a lead in electronics at Target, it's not exactly a big job to lose lol...
  11. I've been listening to this on repeat countless times already, on every set of speakers I can find, I'm leaning towards JW, specifically track 4 from the leaked list. It's clearly edited from a larger work, and yes there's a lack of woodwinds in what we hear so far, but the Imperial March has several sections without woodwinds - and then really highlights them in the middle section. Considering said track is over 4 minutes, there's plenty of time to have lots of other material going on in the full piece. It doesn't hurt that the subject of the video plays into it as well, plus the fact that this music hasn't been identified as existing anywhere else and it wouldn't make sense to have someone create (from scratch) any sort of piece for a promotion this small, and then have it be so heavily edited - much simpler and cheaper to just use any of the swaths of old star wars music out there and edit that in.
