  1. Murry Christmas, chat. This is objectively the best Christmas symphony for the holidays, it was written by John Williams' and Mozart's favorite composer, Yo-Sup Jivin', so put on those Irish jig shoes, turn your Skullcandies to max and prepare for mad beats.
  2. Though why limit it to movies? In video games there's a melodic genius by the name of Nobuo Uematsu. Kind of Uematsu-esque, I always thought the choir of just V - V - iv, V - V - iv in 13th Warrior was incredibly catchy as a main theme or hook people remember in a movie, it just never became popular. Nothing people would sing or anything, just something they would remember. I mean that's just as catchy as duel of fates lol, just way more efficient. Then I think people easily recognize the score of this film: @bru
  3. In the video exercise, we see how The Force Theme using the 4th degree (note of C) is inherent to its melodic metastructure: the foundation of a suspended 1-2-4 arpeggio which foreshadows the 4th degree being held in measure 4, during a IV chord. Example 1 removes one small note, which proves a pivotal disruption to its overall character. Example 2 removes the whole rhythmic mannerism, yet in keeping its melodic identity intact, resembles something much closer to the Force Theme in overall character.
  4. "Why do you listen to that Binary Sunset music so much?" "I enjoy marches." Firstly I like to single out what the moment that truly makes a theme is. For instance, with E.T.'s flying theme I noticed the critical aspect of melody and harmony was from the II - V transition, that leap from the note B to a high B resolving on V. With The Force Theme, I feel the prime area to note is the first four measures, the build-up from chords i to IV. So I can set the rest aside at first. Distinctive qualities of the first two measures: - The melody first
  5. Crushes my soul to see such a brilliant game come to an end again with no industry for this pure art. At Dead of Night is a new game by the makers of Contradiction, released just a week ago today, and it only has 14 reviews! I can't believe that... such unfairness. This company should be booming by now, though I haven't played the new game yet, I'm trying to get over the shock of the last one. I hope it's even somewhat as good. If by it chance turns out to be a dud, I can only blame the industry and public for having their heads up their asses while not supporting this company. I'm so happy to
  6. Sometimes the deepest questions seem the silliest at first. But I think we're finally getting somewhere, think about it.
  7. W. F. Bach was John Williams the guitarist of his time. I'd agree with this.
  8. Genres are dumb. That's what synopses are for, or at least keywords. Remember last.fm where you used to type any word that comes to mind and it would bring up a song, or type a combination of more general words. If you want to relate movies to one another, see if they have some keywords in common.
  9. Nah. Not 'Romantic,' nor necessarily superior. Just a brilliant and enlightened composer of Baroque music. Perhaps the only real one.
  10. When I really think of that concept of greatest 'music appreciation', Uematsu comes to mind the very utmost. But Williams is there too in emotional expression: I had said once I think film score composers are closer in mannerism to Romantic composers, ie. emotions, where as I think Uematsu is closer to Classical composers, ie. perfect simplicity. Tchaikovsky, Williams, Brahms, and Dvorak are also sometimes in the second category however. It depends on how simple yet effective the music is, the latter category of composers feel just more thematic and natural to me.
  11. It's obvious how the beginning of the Brahms starts as if struggling to give his original voice some merit, but within minutes Beethoven takes completely over. Haha. Some sort of musical necessity or 'appreciation.' It's an instinct that seems to take over moments in Williams' scores as well.
