Themes and Their Musical Meaning in Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens — 4 Comments

  1. Dear Mark,

    I find your post very interesting to read and specially to hear. I am a musician myself and a huge fan of film music like Star Wars.
    I play in an orchestra called the “Limburgs Fanfare Orkest” which are the best musicians (amateur as well as professionals) from all of Limburg together (Limburg is a province of The Netherlands). We consider ourselves to be the best Fanfare Orchestra in the world. If you are interested please listen to us on YouTube or go to http://www.limburgsfanfareorkest.com.
    For our next project, we want to play the movie soundtrack from the new Star Wars trilogy. Is there a possibility to perform some of the John Williams music? Maybe we can perform this project together?
    If so, please contact our chairman on v.d.beuken.roeven@hetnet.nl or me on bart.kosters@gmail.com
    Thank you very much for this opportunity
    Best regards,
    Bart

    • Dear Bart – thanks for your kind note on my analysis. As for performing this music, I am not the person to contact as I have nothing to do with the copyright or permissions associated with this music. But I do enjoy listening to it and analyzing it!

  2. Hello Mark,
    your posts are very interesting. Great Job.
    Do you know, where i can buy the scores of Star Wars Music, and movies scores in general?

  3. Love this! I just happened upon this article, searching for music for my young piano students who love this movie. Thanks for identifying the main themes so clearly, so I can discuss with them! I am also a music theory lover, so love the in-depth analysis. I’m going to look for more of your articles.
