Giacchino -NOT- "working alongside" Williams on Star Wars 7 score

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't be surprised if Giacchino pops over to London at some point during the recording sessions regardless, but yes this does seem to indicate he has not been hired in an official capacity to work on the score.

Thanks for posting, Bilbo!

And sorry if I offended you earlier, I was just trying to help! Tweets should be sourced when posted here anyway, IE with a URL back to the original tweet, so people can't just make stuff up and trick people.

No more paranoid JWFan conspiracy theories? Awww.

Definitely. I fully expect him to be there at the recording sessions.

European JWFan member should all converge on London, and demand full access!

Hi, @m_giacchino is there any accuracy to the AICN rumor you're assisting John Williams in scoring Star Wars VII?

Michael Giacchino ‏@m_giacchino 13m

@MakingStarWars - nope - JW surely doesn't need help from me / he's done this before and it will be brilliant as always.

I was coming here to post that. Just so you guys know, JWFan was instrumental in getting an official answer. I work with the guy who got a response from Giacchino and asked him to get an official answer that I could share with you. Now we can all relax.

LONG TIME lurker. I think I've had an account here since the Attack of the Clone days. It's always been hard for me to engage in a serious discussion here because the knowledge level is so over my head but I love reading what people have to say and contributing whatever I can. Recently, my buddy started a Star Wars website called Makingstarwars.net and asked me to assist with selecting music for the podcast as well as for commercial breaks. I also write articles or point out things I find on the internet that pertain to Star Wars (That's how Kiner's uploading of more Clone Wars music came to be widely known.) It's grown fairly large, VERY quickly and now we are listed as one of the fan sites on Starwars.com.

If anyone ever wants to write an article about the music of Star Wars, we'd be happy to publish it. Obviously there would be no pay involved as we don't see a dime ourselves but I'm certain there are some really knowledgable smart people out there that would love to inform us all about the beauty of Williams and his Star Wars music.

@MakingStarWars - yep - i'll be writing themes and setpieces, and johnny will arrange the material, rearrange preexisting material, and conduct.

Let's face it, Williams hasn't been able to churn anything interesting out for ages. At this point he needs some guidance from someone who understands modern storytelling. Giacchino is the man to reignite the old glory.

I hope the score will still be pure JW at heart. Hopefully more of a learning experience for Giachino than a 50/50 collab.

May Giacchino is just orchestrating?

I think they're both composing themes, kind of like Zimmer and Howard on Batman.

I'm sure it'll be seamless, as it was the case with those gentlemen.

Ah well....I guess its the only the next natural step for his career.

Williams is a big man for agreeing to this though. Has he ever done something like this before?

I think he arranged William Ross' music for Chamber of Secrets. That's the closest example I can think of. There might be more. Williams is not as generous with crediting collaborators as others in this business.

Why the hell does the thread title read "RUMOR DEBUNKED!!!!!" when it's actually confirmed?

Jason has a wicked sense of humour

Karol

Everything I know about him says otherwise! I mean, he hated the sharpest episode of Black Mirror!

I wonder who gets the biggest say in orchestration?

Giacchino definitely has a more goofy sound, and John's sound is way more...refined. But I think this generation of Star Wars might benefit from more of that goofy sound. Otherwise it might come across as too pretentious.
