  • Star Wars - The Genius of John Williams


    John Williams' scores for the Star Wars series contain some of the most recognisable, and popular music ever written for film. In this essay I analyse one theme, or set piece, from each of the three trilogies - 'Duel of the Fates' from the prequels, 'Princess Leia's Theme' from the original trilogy and 'The Battle of Crait' from the sequels. I use these to consider how Williams created the iconic sound of the Star Wars universe, as well as how he uses the music to enhance the narrative and add depth to the characters.

    Now even the ungodly scholars are taking him seriously. John Towner Williams was born in Flushing, Queens, New York, on February 8, 1932. He's an American composer, conductor, and pianist. His career celebrated 60 years in 2018. This tribute covers 5 of these 6 decades and consists of his supreme best. It's not presented in chronological order but as an evocation of the feeling and texture of the music. One score recalls another, a musical statement of love. Enjoy the ride!

  • John Williams - Duel of the Fates HQ


    *Music used in this video belongs their respective owners.
    I do not own anything in the video, no copyright infringement is intended. All images rights belong to their owners/creators.

    Duel of the Fates is a musical theme recurring in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and the Expanded Universe. It was composed by John Williams and recorded for the film soundtrack by the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and the London Voices. This symphonic piece is played with both a full orchestra and a choir. With the music video for this theme, the LSO became the only classical group to ever have a video debut on Total Request Live. Duel of the Fates lasted 11 days on the countdown. The lyrics are based on a fragment of an archaic Welsh poem Cad Goddeu (Battle of the Trees), and sung in Sanskrit.

    The music had its debut during the final lightsaber duel between Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (although Williams conducted Duel of the Fates to appear as a concert suite in the end credits, rather than the film, Williams did record similar cues using the ostinato motif, and in one instance, a 'cut down' version, labelled the Great Duel). John Williams stated the chorus was introduced to give a religious, temple-like feel to the epic lightsaber duel. Williams compared the setting of the battle to a pagan altar, and that the duel itself seems like a dance or a ballet, a religious ceremony of some kind, probably ending in the death of one of the combatants. For Episode I, John Williams recorded a choirless version of Duel of the Fates, then recorded the choir performing on its own, then layered the vocals over the choirless recordings.

    An abridged version is played during Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones during Anakin's speederbike search for his mother.

    The piece Battle of the Heroes that was played in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, during the battle sequence between the Jedi Master Yoda, and Emperor Palpatine, the Dark Lord of the Sith, in the senate chamber on Coruscant, and the simultaneous battle between Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar, was inspired by Duel of the Fates but rewritten in a tragic mode. Lucas had expressed in a documentary of The Phantom Menace that he wanted to use Duel of the Fates in his Part III liking how it portrayed the feeling of the doom of the dark side. But he decided not to use it mainly because it did not match the tragic mood of the duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, Duel of the Fates does make an appearance during the Yoda/Darth Sidious fight scene. For this instance, John Williams re-recorded the choir and layered it over the vocal-less recording from Episode I.

    Duel of the Fates can be heard in a number of Star Wars video games, including Star Wars Episode I: Racer, The Clone Wars, Lego Star Wars, Revenge of the Sith video game, Star Wars: Empire at War, Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Angry Birds Star Wars II.[citation needed] The theme also plays during Soulcalibur IV whenever The Apprentice fights within either of the game's three Star Wars-themed stages, as well as during his extended ending. Duel of the Fates also plays when Darth Maul appears during the Jedi Training Academy show featured at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.

    A special of Lego Star Wars called The Empire Strikes Out features a short section of Duel of the Fates. Darth Maul was humming along with the music while declaring how awesome he was.
    Another Lego Star Wars special, entitled The Yoda Chronicles: Menace of the Sith, also featured Duel of the Fates. Count Dooku plays the music on a radio during a demonstration of the Sith clone Jek-14's power. Darth Maul complains of how Duel of the Fates is his theme song, to which Asajj Ventress replies Can somebody say diva?.

  • John Williams - Flying Theme HQ


    Longtime Spielberg collaborator John Williams, who composed the film's musical score, described the challenge of creating one that would generate sympathy for such an odd-looking creature. As with their previous collaborations, Spielberg liked every theme Williams composed and had it included. Spielberg loved the music for the final chase so much that he edited the sequence to suit it. Williams took a modernist approach, especially with his use of polytonality, which refers to the sound of two different keys played simultaneously. The Lydian mode can also be used in a polytonal way. Williams combined polytonality and the Lydian mode to express a mystic, dreamlike and heroic quality. His theme—emphasizing coloristic instruments such as the harp, piano, celesta, and other keyboards, as well as percussion—suggests E.T.'s childlike nature and his machine.

    Written & Performed live by Taylor John Williams
    Directed & Edited by Cypress Jones

    brother won't you help me?
    my woman got away
    roaming through the city
    for a soul upon to prey
    but be wary brother
    it you think it's her you're seeing
    don't approach her like you would
    a normal human being

    i was rather careless
    should have checked that lock and key
    but i'd drowned my senses
    on cocaine and Dalwhinnie
    so keep your wits about you
    even if you find her sleeping
    don't approach her like you would
    a normal human being

    and don't concern yourself with my lacerations
    just help me hang these here notifications
    i know it's confusing but i need your patience
    for we've got ourselves here quite a situation

    then i hear a screaming
    so i run right to the sound
    all of the while i'm seeing
    that he's nowhere to be found
    until I find that you're together
    and i can see he's bleeding
    and it's clear to me he ain't a normal human being

    for years i've dealt with such ungodly trouble
    now it seems that's all about to double
    gone are both of the ones who helped to shape me
    so i just bow my head and let them take me

  • John Williams vs Gustav Holst or Star Wars Vs The Planets


    This episode of Everything Music is called John Williams vs. Gustav Holst or Star Wars vs. the Planets. John Williams was influenced by a number of composers such as Wagner, Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, Erich Korngold and especially Gustav Holst. In today’s episode I will show you the melodic and harmonic influences that Holst had on John Williams music of Star Wars.

    Gustav Holst (1874-1934) was an English composer, arranger and teacher and best known for his orchestral suite The Planets. His distinctive compositional style was the product of many influences like Wagner, Richard Strauss, Ravel, Grieg and Ralph Vaughn Williams.The Planets, Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite written between 1914 and 1916. Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

    John Williams (born February 8, 1932) is an American composer, conductor, and pianist. With a career spanning over six decades he has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history, to many of the highest-grossing films of all-time, including Jaws, the Star Wars series, Superman, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the Indiana Jones series, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, and the first three Harry Potter films.

    From their premieres to the present day, both The Planets and Star Wars have been enduringly popular, influential and widely performed and recorded.

    I went to see the maestro of movies himself John Williams at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Unfortunately a few days before the performance John was taken ill and confined to hospital, but he arranged for his friend and colleague Dirk Brossé to conduct the LSO in his place. We missed John but we still got to hear some of the most iconic pieces of film music ever written played by the orchestra who made them famous. It was a truly spectacular night and I urge you to go find more videos from the same performance!!
