Discussion topics:

  • A breakdown of the music and sound in that Leia scene.
  • Using music theory vs intuition.
  • Orchestration vs. arranging for a rock band.
  • A much-needed refresher on the three (!) different Leia themes.
  • Reverb and the First Order's interior decorating preferences.
  • How Tony and I approach covering Star Wars songs and what we've learned from it.
  • If we could create a new Star Wars band...

Note: While leitmotif names are completely up to interpretation, I use the names from Frank Lehman's Complete Catalogue of the Musical Themes of Star Wars. I find this resource to be the most careful, objective, well-organized, and up-to-date guide of its kind.
