Hello all. One of my good friends had created this short film, involving a guy getting a lightsaber delivered to him in the mail. He asked me if I could compose a soundtrack for his film, to which I immediately agreed. Now, because this is related to Star Wars in many ways, I felt it was necessary to use some of John Williams' themes and motifs. Even so, this soundtrack has some of my own original music too. So, the film itself and my soundtrack are attached in this post.
To the one of the most influential film composers of all-time, I salute you. You have inspired so many people to become composers. You introduced many of us to leitmotifs in film, and interpolated the melodies of Holst, Strauss, and Wagner in your music. Your 1977 film score is ranked as the Greatest American Film Score ever. http://connect.afi.com/site/DocServer/scores25.pdf?docID=222 You have inspired me to become the composer I am today! Happy Birthday John Williams!
I understand this topic may be asking something vague (I'm not asking anything specific yet I am looking for something specific), so please do feel free to add whatever musical knowledge you have to it. It's very simple I think, to grasp these short snippets, but I find these two to be rather intelligent and enjoyable to listen to, if I could only extract more influence from something of their length. I would love to get some more ideas as to similarities or possible influences. I'd much appreciate your help and like for you to listen. These two pieces are pretty mainstream as far as classic
