  1. I want to be like everyone else, but I am just like you. I cannot wait.
  2. The Imperial March and Duel of the Fates have the same harmony/very similar. The chromatic mediant as its known, Em-Cm/Gm-Ebm (Duel of the Fates) & Gm-Ebm (The Imperial March). I think it's why the force theme has been used so much in the marketing of the disney Star Wars era, it's so easily placed due it's diatonic like melody, works over any typical chord structure, but it's rarely (if at all) woven and crafted the way John Williams does. Like in the scene where Luke says to Obi-Wan, "I want to go with you to Alderaan", he plays the force theme over the horns in a G Minor context which is the same as Binary Sunset version, however in this Luke/Obi-Wan scene he plays that G Minor (hinted) melody in an Eb Major setting. This trailer music works for it's purpose I guess, but doesn't even come close to paying homage to the Williams scores.
  3. The Empire Strikes Back - 'This is no Cave' Mock Up [In Progress] https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BDX3MW7SHxmMacL0Nv6j74gOqJC4N5PP Just wanted to see what you guys think. Thanks in advance.
  4. Okay, I think the first part (after the pitched down main titles) sounds like samples, the more it goes through towards the end it sounds less like samples. The programming in the last few seconds is fantastic if that part isn't real. Those last few bars are the bit that throw me from thinking it's a real recording. But if I have to put money on it i'm saying that it's samples.
  5. Where is the music from in this second half? I know it's a pastiche of the Imperial March (Can hear that A minor - F Minor Chromatic Mediant at work).
  6. @tintacle those are incredible covers, great work. Fantastic.
  7. Yeah but the versions that are out there are not very good.
  8. Yes! I'll now with that in mind say, Duel of the Fates without choir.
  9. Just got the CD, got it on the hifi now. Balling my eyes out and I'm only on track 2 - Close Encounters Stunning.

  11. Are they good, because i have a recording of the planets and they are okay. I'm just gutted because it's been my dream to hear the LSO do Empire live. When they did A New Hope last year i couldn't believe it.
  12. I'd love to hear Williams do more cues which incorporate Rey's Theme and The Force Theme, likely better than I've done here...
  13. 1. Across the Stars 2. Rey's Theme 3. Anakin vs Obi-Wan 4. A Window to the Past 5. Victor's Tale
  14. They've sorted it now. It was 2 originally. number 3 has sent me a message confirming they've sent one to the right address. Not sure where the mistake was if it was the mail service or LaLaLand. They responded within a day though, very quick! Highly unlikely that i'm getting it before Christmas though
  15. I gave them the right address, it's on the LaLaLand site and in my email, yet the notification from LaLaLandEmployee is wrong 😕 I can't see how we are going to get them 😕
