In fact, none of the components of the theme are used apart from the main theme more than once. A good example would be the variety of gestures relating to the dark side, following a piece of music used in the opera-house scene. In fact, some of Williams' themes are written from the outset purely to convey a certain mood rather than evoke a character or setting, such as the Throne Room music of the original Star Wars or the Pursuit motif from The Force Awakens. Kiner's own material for the film includes a theme for Anakin Skywalker's Padawan learner, Ahsoka Tano, as well as a theme for Jabba the Hutt's uncle Ziro. The Force Awakens uses a 24-piece basso profundo orchestra, which is about ten more pieces than would be in a 90-piece SATB choir. In the original Star Wars, some of the music for the Death Star's Trash Compactor scene was used over an extended shot of the arrival into Mos Eisley inserted in the film's Special Edition. Up until this point, what Star Wars sounded like had been defined by the immortal works of John Williams, and by the equally classical work of a handful of additional composers … However, Episodes II and even III feature much more rhythmic music, and Revenge of the Sith, in particular, is more operatic in its use of choir and even solo vocals. The scores to the original three films are melodic and romantic, as is – largely – the score to The Phantom Menace. A theme can be used symbolically, such as hinting at Darth Vader's theme when the decision to train Anakin is made in Episode I. Williams full score often slightly overtakes the length of the film due to the recording of concert suites and several alternate takes. [38], Williams' Star Wars catalog remains one of the largest collections of leitmotifs in the history of cinema,[b] although – for comparison – it still falls short of Wagner's use of leitmotifs in the Ring Cycle or even Howard Shore's work on the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films. [23] Nevertheless, due to added high woodwinds and percussion parts, scores such as Empire Strikes Back and Attack of the Clones call for 106 and 110 players, respectively. Adams also notes a "Playful Yoda theme" and that the ostinato accompaniment of "Duel of the Fates" is used "thematically" but does not list either of them as separate themes, per se. This resulted in several nods or homages to the music of Gustav Holst, William Walton, Sergei Prokofiev and Igor Stravinsky in the score to Star Wars. After the initial Kamino scenes, Williams continues to showcase the motif in a skeletal form – an arpeggiation often considered to be a separate "mystery" motif (although Lehman classifies it an "incidental" figure). Even when some of these figures do recur, it is often unclear whether they are substantial enough to be assigned with thematic significance, as these instances often includes material that is incidental in nature, such as several figures used in the finale of The Empire Strikes Back;[132] material with overly broad (and therefore vague) association to the story such as tragic music written for the Starkiller sequence in The Force Awakens returning for Han Solo's death[133] or "Tension" music from Episodes 7 and 8;[56] material that is purely rhythmic or timbral like various "bouncing" horn figures for Luke's landspeeder search in the original Star Wars,[130] the use of the synthesizer to represent Vader's menace in The Empire Strikes Back,[134] a women's chorus for the underwater scenes of The Phantom Menace; material that is of a generic nature, such as his use of "mournful homophonic" choir in The Last Jedi for climactic moments; or material that is part of Williams' stylistic choices as a composer, more than a thematic statement unique to the series. It is written in the style of big-band jazz and is stylistically akin to the "Cantina Band" music from. This page was last edited on 6 January 2021, at 21:18.

These album releases typically include several concert suites, written purely for the end credits or the album itself, where a specific theme is developed continuously throughout the piece. The more varied and nuanced the use of leitmotif is, the more memorable it typically becomes. Williams' scores for the nine saga films (and a suite for a spin-off film) count among the most widely known and popular contributions to modern film music, and utilize a symphony orchestra and features an assortment of about fifty recurring musical themes to represent characters and other plot elements: one of the largest caches of themes in the history of film music. The first three scores received an expanded Anthology release and finally an effectively complete release in 1996. The album was released by Walt Disney Records on December 18, 2015, in both digipak CD and digital formats.

In fact, since the prequels featured both their own stock of leitmotifs and recurring themes from the previous films, they boasted a larger catalog of themes, whereas the use of the leitmotifs in a cycle of works typically involves increasing density towards the later installments in the narrative order. [4] The album was released as a double LP which was formatted for an autochanger record player; one disc had sides one and four with the other having sides two and three. A second set of timpani is used in the former, and in The Last Jedi. According to the, "Max Rebo Band Jams". "Unknown Episode II Source Cue". the theme recurs thirty times or more in a two-hour film.

He composed the music score for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and additional music for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. This theme is also apparent from the album presentation: Williams having edited the first track specifically to showcase its appearances. Williams' music of Star Wars is unique in that it is relatively dense for film scoring, with approximately 11 themes used in each two-hour film, of which about 90% is scored.[19]. [10], Lucas originally wanted to use tracked orchestral and film music in a similar manner to 2001: A Space Odyssey, itself a major inspiration for Star Wars. Williams wrote some fifty themes for over 19 hours of cinema, with an average of six new themes per film and an average 12 themes used in each film overall. [a] Otherwise, however, his later scores were mostly tracked with music of his own composition,[14] mainly from previous Star Wars films.

This theme appeared once in the previous film, and only acquired leitmotivic status by its restatement in this film. For the score to the 1976 film, see, Romantic application of Leitmotifs in the score, Thematic inconsistencies between installments. Princess Leia's Theme is used for the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars, which has little to do with her character even though she is present in the scene.

In other cases, a motif is supplanted by a new one, as the Imperial March replaced the original, Imperial motif – a problem only confounded when he returned to that theme with the prequels, only for it to disappear entirely for what is now supposed to be the fourth episode; sometimes, the existing motif simply changes its thematic meaning: Ben Kenobi's theme turned into a theme for the Force by The Empire Strikes Back, and Luke's theme – into the "Star Wars theme". Even within each trilogy, Williams often abandons a motif after a single score or two (as he did with Anakin's theme), writes (across several films) multiple motifs that serve a similar function (e.g. Otherwise, it always precedes and accompanies the Rebel Fanfare, but often again it extends to underpin large sections of on-screen action and the respective material in the original Star Wars.

"[12][52][53][56] While it is a fully realized melody, clearly evoking the "little scrap and robot collectors", as Williams called them, it does not recur across two discrete cues, rather being interrupted briefly by Imperial music (the interruption slightly extended in the film by silence[131]) and then resuming.[54].

Attack of the Clones, the first film to be shot digitally, had major edits made after the scoring process, leading to the inclusion of tracked music over many of the digitally created sequences such as the Droid Factory on Geonosis or the Clone Army's arrival to the battle. Yoda's theme in Cloud City is said to denote Luke gaining courage as he "remembers Yoda's teachings and tries to apply them in this", but the theme is later used in relation to Leia's attempt at retrieving Han and even Lando's order to evacuate Cloud City, giving more weight to the outright dramatic explanation.

However, similar devices are also used in Indiana Jones to represent the mysteries of the Ark[135] and the Crystal Skull. [37] Besides the main theme and a handful of other principal themes, Williams forged several smaller motifs for each episode, which are generally not as memorable and at times interchangeable.
