A Leitmotif inspired Piece I wrote (I tried to be Williams-esque in sound)

Recommended Posts

So yeah, this was a piece I wrote for my friends (since they think everything I write sounds like a "hot airballoon ride".

I explored the concept of leitmotif and having each cue have its own theme (as Williams does).

I'm posting it on this website because, well almost everyone here is a John Williams fan, and I'm sure you'll be able to find each theme of the characters/scenes on your own (based on extensive cue/soundtrack analysis I've found here.)

Here is a more detailed list of each cue featured in the score:

Opening Fanfare (

-

) - Just a picture of a field with a whole bunch of steampunk balloons.

Introduction of the Hero and the Glance (

-

)

Setting Up and Take Off (

-

)

Flight of The Dirigibles (

-

)

Death (

-

) -

The Villain's Airship (

-

) -

Stare Down (

-

)

The Chase Scene (

-

)

Hero In Trouble (

-

)

Flames!(

-

)

Victory! (

-

)

Peering Over The Edge (

-

)

What's That? (

-

)

Ascension (

-

)

The Audience Waits (

-

)

Return (

-

)

Hero Fanfare (

-

)

Race Fanfare (

-end)

In the song, there are about three distict themes featured throughout the score:

The Race Fanfare

The Hero's Theme

The Airship

See if you can find each theme, as they are occasionally hidden!

This is a sort of challenge for you Williams fans out there and a way to get my work critiqued by trained ears!

Just so you know, I'm only 16, stopped playing piano years ago. It was written on Finale 2009 by hand, since I have no keyboard/midi cable.

Enjoy!
