Actually not, but that was the idea :

I composed this short piece while out of idea when working on a more "serious" concert piece.

This is a tribute to JW for his last SW score (who knows ?)

Hope you 'll enjoy listening to it as much I had fun to compose.

Sicmu,

this is really cool!
The instruments sound synthy here and there, but I guess it was not your intention to make the sound 100% real...

Yes I enjoyed listening! :)

Best,
Michael

You must have a little JW blood running through your veins !

You've captured his orchestration style beautifully ! :)

Is this Gold or Silver ? And is that Symphonic Choirs ?

Thank you for your comments guys,

MCS you're right ,I'm much more in the composition process than spending hours to make two notes sounding absolutely realistic, to me it's rather a job of a sound engineer.

It's Gold ( but a few instruments) and the very old Advanced Choirs : if you can't understand the Lyrics it's because it's sung in Wookie!

Thanks again,

Nice piece!
Good counterpoint and very well orchestrated.

That's awesome!
I'm a huge John Williams fan and I have to say that his style is brilliantly captured in your song.

That's cool you wrote it in Wookie language, and for a fun fact (from a SW nerd), the Wookie language is called Shyriiwook.

Thank you both,

I have also been a huge JW fan many years and it became natural for me to write in his style, I can even imitate the evolution of his style over the years.

If I like al ot the music for the second trilogy I have to confess that the score for "the Empire..." is the the best to me.

Excellent work. You've captured the style of the Star Wars score very well. If this was to be performed by real orchestra/choir, you could be forgiven for thinking it was a SW piece.

Look forward to hearing more of your work :D

Something like "Duel of the fates from Star Wars Episode" ? ;)

Thank you for listening folks,

yes Anton, I should probably write a "Duel of the Farts" but on the other hand I'm trying to turn away from the JW style : it's dangerous to be an imitator.

Duel of the farts? That might be interesting... would have to have horn rips, and plenty of wind in there too :p

There goes my sensible side...

This is a great piece, but I think also that it's dangerous because each time you would write a piece, you would put in some JW's clichés, It won't be YOUR style.

I have to agree with tchoyy. Composing a pastiche is an important part of the compositional process. However, concentrating too much on a particular style will affect your own style. Think of it as a regional dialect. You stay to long in JW land and you'll pick up his accent, and you'll find yourself speaking it without actually realising.
