    MissPadmé got a reaction from Mattris in John Williams's use of the timpani   
    No those are also Japanese Taiko Drums, wich are mainly reaponsible for the strong thik percussive sound of the beginning.
    I always liked the "Meeting Hitler" Timpani overdub!
    DUN DUN dundun DUMM

    MissPadmé got a reaction from Arpy in Do you enjoy the Force Awakens score?   
    That's put in words very well - kinda like 'your' favourite sportsteam not doing well.
    Would't go as far to claim, that it makes me sad though. It bothers me a little, can't completely say that I don't care...
    Yet, In the end it doesn't change the fact, that I, for myself, can see/hear a beauty in the music, which just fills my heart with joy. That Joy is not really affected by the opinion and tastes of others.

    MissPadmé got a reaction from Score in Do you enjoy the Force Awakens score?   
    I absolutely agree. "Nothing hummable" seems to be all people care about and well, I kind of get what they mean. A simple, catchy melody can be the easiest connection between the story, its characters and the general audience. And Williams is pretty much known for his mastery in making these connections, so they have expectations.
    Williams' writing has definitly gotten more and more refined in the last 15 years and it's not that he isn't as melodic as in the 1970s/80s, but his style has evolved and the themes have a "complex simplistic" quality, as opposed to a simple simplicity..
    Don't know if that makes sense...
    So in short: I REALLY love that score.

    I think there is something to be said for the enduring popularity of the SW scores, and how they were always different from your average film score. It was always neat how much Joe 6-Pack loved a John Williams adventure score as much as your hardcore score listener, and how things would stand out musically to them after only one viewing. I don't think it means anything for Williams' craftsmanship in TFA, but it still makes me kinda sad that a lot of people don't seem to be getting the magic this time.

    MissPadmé got a reaction from Jilal in What does everyone think of 'March of the Resistance'?   
    Just great how different opinions and tastes can be...
    easily one of my favourite tracks from the Album (up there with the top 5..)
    I love Williams in "NaziTheme" - "Meet the Press" - Fugal Mode - I cannot understand a bit how poeple can call it weak. I think it does what it's supposed to do very well: being a sort of revoltuionary, militaristic protest march! Daam da dadada...
    I PERSONALLY prefer it to for example... Battle of the Heroes..AND to almost EVERYTHING from Indy 4.. just my two cenrts

    MissPadmé got a reaction from Scarpia in StarWars.com Livestream of Force Awakens Red Carpet premiere includes Star Wars music (UPDATE: No new Williams material was used)   
    That major variation of the Imperial March was a cheaply made mock-up version and sounded like spoof/ridiculous... no way that's something written by Williams - you guys are funny..

    No actually John Williams is of german heritage and in the late 70s and early 80 he was Keyboarder in german Bands .. he was also a member of the "Buggles" and he also appears in the music video to Video Killed the Radio Star...
    Later he found his way to Hollywood where he started to gather composers arround him who would hepl him to compose the complex two hour scores he has to write for the 3 to 4 blockbuster movies he does per year....
