John Williams Reveals What to Expect From his Star Wars: The Force Awakens Score

John Williams Reveals What to Expect From his Star Wars: The Force Awakens Score | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
h I do here, but here it’s an extension of something that’s been really organic and continually growing. It’s a very, very different process. That’s really the best analogy I can come up with at the moment so I’ll repeat it: it’s like adding paragraphs to a letter rather than beginning the letter again.

Who Should Score Star Wars: Episode VII? | Tracksounds

Who Should Score Star Wars: Episode VII? | Tracksounds | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

...I started to think about the future of STAR WARS...for adults, that is. (Clearly THE CLONE WARS is meant for kids and I have been able to stomach only one episode thus far. The idiotic droid army and their ridiculous one-liners just irritates me too much to watch.) Although there is a live-action, television show coming as well, the real future lay in another feature film or films. Why not film THE FORCE UNLEASHED (and it's sequels?). Why not jump back to the future and do an Episode VII? Now there's a thought. If they did, let me ask you to ponder two questions:

 

First, who you like to see take the directorial reigns?...

 

Second, who would be the best choice to score such a picture?

Audio Evidence: Other Composers Who Could Score Star Wars | Tracksounds

Audio Evidence: Other Composers Who Could Score Star Wars | Tracksounds | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
So this post has been sitting in "draft" status for several months, but with the interview with John Williams recently posted by Zap2it, it's becoming more and more certain that Mr. Williams is going to be involved with the upcoming STAR WARS movie in some fashion. So, while there yet remains a sliver of relevance, I wanted to get "something" out of the research I did in coming up with some alternative composers who might be a good fit to score Episode 7 ... or one of the other spin-off movies. The Youtube playlist above will take you through, one track at a time, those that could make a good fit for the franchise.  Now, my criteria is pretty simple.  These composers have already shown the ability to write music in that unforgettable style that Williams brought to the STAR WARS ORIGINAL TRILOGY.  It is very possible that the spin-off films go in a different musical direction.  In that case, the doors would fling wide open for all sorts of possibilities.

There are a TON of great composers out there and so to keep this list manageable, I'm only listing some of those who have already written music that is in that John Williams-wheel-house.  Please keep that in mind as you listen and read through. So go with me on this brief journey.  If John Williams DID NOT end up scoring the next Star Wars film, which was my prediction in episode #51 of The Soundcast, I think, we, the audience would be just fine...provided J.J. Abrams and company did their due diligence and hired the right person to continue this musical tradition. I've included a few more obvious choices, just so I don't get a flood of emails or comments asking me why I didn't include those more obvious choices.  So let's take a look at them...one at a time...
