    Mr. Breathmask got a reaction from apples in John Williams conducts Filarmonica della Scala, Milan, Italy, 19 June 2022!   
    I jokingly showed this to my wife, thinking she'd scoff at going to another one of these concerts I kept telling her were our last chance to see the man.
     
    Instead, she went "well, I still want to see Milan one day. Might as well go next year." 
     
    John Williams might become the reason we get to see half of Europe at one point.

    Over the past few days, I've been working on an editing guide for the Firefly soundtrack release. As you may know, the Firefly soundtrack album features many tracks consisting of smaller cues that have been thrown together from different episodes and containing material related to different characters. This makes for a rather unhinged listening experience.
    Thankfully, I'm not the first person to attempt this, so I've been using this website for reference.
    Most of what's on there is accurate, but there were a few omissions and mistakes.
    So now that I've gone through every piece of music and checked all the corresponding scenes at the website linked above, I'm left with five pieces of music I can't place.
    Can you?
    It would be a great help! They are:
    4a. Whitefall (0:00 - 0:36)
    11a. Leaving (0:00 - 0:10)
    11c. Caper [part 2] (1:17 - 1:54)
    13a. In My Bunk [part 1] (0:00 - 0:24)
    19a. Boarding the Serenity (0:00 - 0:39)
    Everything else is accounted for. I hope you guys can help me out! Once all tracks are in place, I'll post the complete editing guide!

    21. To the Maintenance Shed **/High-Wire Stunts */Hungry Raptor *
    11m2 Preparing to Meet the Monster
    11m2-12m1 High Wire Stunts
    12m2 Hungry Raptor
    To signal the transition into the a new mission for the heroes, Williams plays a militaristic version of the adventure theme, as Muldoon and Ellie gather their gear to venture outside. Once they are out in the open, the score returns to the familiar texture of the ominous jungle. The carnivore motif gets a big rendition as the broken raptor fence is revealed. Jungle drums up the tension as Ellie makes herself ready to storm the power shed. Another frantic action cue underscores her dash before the music becomes more subdued as she makes her way inside. A final chord takes us to Grant and the kids arriving at the perimeter fence. This first cue plays pretty much in its entirety, but making the video required some editing to get everything to line up correctly. The first chord fades in slightly later in the film, with the music not starting until we cut to Ellie on the stairs. There’s also a minor edit somewhere in the first part of the track. You’ll notice the video go black for a moment at my best guess at where footage was cut from the film. The cue then continues exactly as it does on CD, except that the gap left for Muldoon’s “Because we’re being hunted” is longer in the film. I have edited the music accordingly, to leave the flow of this scene intact.
     
    The next cue is the tense build-up of High Wire Stunts, which underscores Grant and the kids’ climb into the perimeter, intercut with Ellie switching on the power. The first minute of the cue is unused in the film, with the music not coming in until after the distant T-Rex roar. In the film, a short clip from the start of The T-Rex Chase is used to kick off the cue. High Wire Stunts was supposed to overlap with the end of Preparing to Meet the Monster, starting right as we cut to the perimiter fence. The pause for Grant's fake electrocution was shortened for album purposes. Another big statement of the carnivore motif is cut from the film here, originally overlapping with the roar heard from off-screen. As Lex and Tim react to the sound, the music turns more urgent and this is where the film first picks up the track. When playing this scene with music, the music brings an urgency to the scene right from the start. In the final film, the T-Rex roar is what triggers the urgency in the characters, so the scene works very well without music at the start. The silence actually elevates the scene more than the tense music, lending room to some levity with Grant and the kids and saving the danger for after the T-Rex kicks the kids into gear.
     
    The cue continues as is, until a clumsy music edit in the film removes the short drumroll that is heard as Grant turns to the fence to go up and get Tim. The final two chords of the track were also dropped to make way for Ellie’s dialogue and a brief silence before a hungry raptor comes crashing through the pipes…
     
    And here we find the most notable passage of dropped music in Hungry Raptor, as Ellie is ambushed by a vicious velociraptor. Iterations of the carnivore motif follow in rapid succession over a frantic action motif accompanied by synthesizer percussion as Ellie hauls ass out of the maintenance shed. Stylistically, it’s slightly different from the other action music in the film. If it wasn’t for The Making of Jurassic Park using this piece for the end credits, we might not have known a piece like this was written for the film until the release of the 20th Anniversary Edition soundtrack in 2013!
     
    In the film, this sequence was tracked with various pieces of the film’s finale. For a piece that was created by editing bits together, it actually works quite well.
     
    The dropped piece is longer than the chase in the film, so we can assume something was cut. If we start the cue right when the raptor appears next to Ellie - which would have it start exactly where the unused conclusion of High-Wire Stunts ends - the music lines up pretty well until the raptor jumps onto the metal floor. I assume an edit was made here. To pick up the film image again, I have synced the latter half of the cue with its start in the film and worked backwards from there.
     
    After Ellie's mad dash from the maintenance shed, the written score returns in the film as Muldoon hunts the escaped raptors. Tense jungle textures with the carnivore motif overlaid accompany him getting into position. The final part of the cue, starting with the raptor’s head appearing next to Muldoon is dropped in favor of music from the end of The Raptor Attack and a mix favoring the sound design. As written, Williams uses a loud and aggressive rendition of the carnivore motif to underscore the attack on Muldoon.
     
    This concludes ten minutes of continuous score, from which a large chunk went unused. But it doesn't end here. Up next is another unique bit of scoring that was almost entirely dropped from the film...

    I enjoyed the HP2 episode as usual, but no love for more of the original material? I love The Flying Car, the spider stuff and the big cue for the Basilisk fight at the end. These always remind me that there's still half an original John Williams score in there and it's pretty damn good.
