  1. How likely is it that the LSO will continue to record the new Star Wars movies? Given that Ep. 7 has an unconfirmed release date of May 2015. Scoring would take place a few months prior like in Feb or March. Do you think the Hollywood Studio Symphony could pull this off? I guess hypothetically JW could write the music and have someone else conduct it, but I'm guessing he gets a lot of satisfaction of conducting them live. Any thoughts ? ! ADMIN NOTE: On March 21st it was officially confirmed to be in LA. http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=23272&p=1105384
  2. From the same company that posted the Falcon video with the mysterious music. Sounds a bit like Williams.
  3. About Star Wars 7 music department , do we have to take imdb info seriously ??? Matt Ashbeck ... composer: additional music Ramiro Belgardt ... music editor Alejandro de la Llosa ... orchestrator Sandy DeCrescent ... orchestra contractor Felix Erskine ... additional composer: teaser trailer Mark Graham ... head of music preparation Gregory Jamrok ... music preparation Randy Kerber ... musician: keyboards Shawn Murphy ... score engineer / scoring mixer Victor Pesavento ... music preparation Conrad Pope ... orchestrator Brian Popkin ... composer: additional music William Ross ... conductor John Williams ... conductor Robert Wolff ... scoring editor Joe Zimmerman ... music preparation

  5. On the newly published Abrams comment; While it's pretty much impossible for Abrams to be objective here, it's still cool to hear good things about the score. Still not really expecting another Empire though (nor even another Phantom) ADMIN NOTE: Video here: http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=25574&p=1159598
  6. Do we know if Williams is conducting any of the Force Awakens? If someone else is conducting, will that have a major effect on the outcome of the score?
  7. Of course nobody knows as of yet but if you had to hazard a guess, what direction do you think Williams will take with the Force Awakens score? From the footage so far of the film, it looks more like the originals. Do you think Williams therefore may return to his writing style that he did for the originals or do you think we will hear something more akin to the prequels and his more modern style?
  8. The Horse Doug Adams tweets: "It's being reported that Bruce Broughton has let it slip that #JohnWilliams is going to do all his own orchestrations on #StarWarsVII" "If true, that's pretty cool." "This staggered recording schedule thing may be a great boon in the day of compressed post-productions. Wonder if it'll become the new norm." http://twitter.com/dougadamsmusic This was today, not yesterday, BTW, so no April Fools I know Jason likes direct links, but I can't access Twitter from my work PC. Jason, SOURCE ME SOME TWEETZ!
  9. http://makingstarwars.net/2015/05/john-williams-to-record-some-of-the-star-wars-the-force-awakens-score-next-month/ Perhaps they'll utilize some London Symphony players like they did with Harry Potter 1 & 3... I wonder if any of it will be used in any upcoming trailers.

  11. What does the teaser tell us about the new Star Wars score? Discuss!
  12. They also published some photos of the cast, but this one I liked it better...
  13. http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/20/star-wars-episode-vii-when-will-harrison-ford-return-to-set-4769090/ Question for UK members: does this newspaper have any credibility? Sounds to me like a load of BS... UPDATE: Topic title edited to reflect actual news
  14. Hi, Did anyone manage to make it to the YMF Debut concert last night? Nice to report Maestro looked great and was in top form. No signs of slowing down I’m happy to say. He did make this one tantalizing comment before playing the Star Wars theme: “We’re about to play Star Wars [audience interrupts with cheers] and each time we play it, I’m reminded of the first time we played it decades ago. Neither I, nor George, nor anyone else involved thought this would go far or in a few years there would be a sequel and I’d have to revisit the themes…and years later another trilogy. Now we’re hearing of a new set of movies coming in 2015, 2016…so I need to make sure I’m still ready to go in a few years for what I hope would be continued work with George…[more cheers].” It seems from the comment he made, he has stated interest in scoring the new films (assuming his stamina and health continues (fingers crossed)). And second, he might not realize the new films are not directly controlled by Lucas but now in the hands of JJ Abrams. Do we need to start a letter writing campaign to vocally have JJ Abrams at least give right of first refusal to Williams? I think it might make a nice passing of the “baton” if JW did the first with Giacchino as understudy to boost some of his skills and really take the place as the heir to JW. Something Giacchino seems willing but untrained to do. It is like that whole padawan/master thing in Star Wars. The sold out concert program was: The Cowboys Overture Close Encounters suite Harry Potter Suite * Hedwig's Theme * Nimbus 2000 * Harry's Wondrous World ET "Adventures on Earth" - Intermission - Hollywood Movie Tribute Hook selections * The Face of Pan * Flight to Neverland Violin suites with Bing Wang, soloist * Fiddler on the Roof * Schindler's List Tintin "The Duel" Lincoln "With Malice Toward None" Star Wars Main Title Encores: Elegy for cello and strings Raiders of the Lost Ark Imperial March ~~~~ March 30th, 2013 update: Michael Giacchino says "I'm a huge Star Wars Fan, but one of the things that excites me most about it coming back is the chance to hear new John Williams music, not new Michael Giacchino music based on John Williams music. I'm excited to hear what he would do, so however it shakes out, it would be great."

  15. Given the conversion in some of the other threads, I thought I would start a poll asking whether you want JW to score episode VII, whether or not he is asked and/or is interested. Given this website, one might think the answer is obvious. However, given some of the conversation, I am not so sure. So, here it is.
