7m3A Spotting Session for STAR WARS (Part I)

We've arrived at another Spotting Session - the moment in our film study where we move cue by cue through every piece of underscore. To commemorate the size, substance and significance of John Williams' STAR WARS, today's entry will be the first in a 2-part Spotting Session. This episode will take us from Alfred Newman's 20th Century Fox Fanfare up to the midpoint of the film - the Millenium Falcon's flight out of Mos Eisley, en route to Princess Leia's homeworld of Alderaan. We revel in exploring the rich orchestrations and story-driven composition of one historic cue after another, calling upon conversations from several of our past guests (including Conrad Pope, Joe Kraemer, and assistant audio engineer on the STAR WARS score, Alan Snelling). This is as unabridged and intentional an examination of the score as we could fathom. Full disclosure: we were left somehow even more riveted by this landmark 1977 work and can only hope you'll feel the same. Please enjoy this voyage inside this John Williams musical masterpiece. #maytheforcebewithyou
