    This is a difficult one..!

    I think if you put so much restraints on the new composer(s) so that he or she has to almost “disregard” their own style to make it sound the way Star Wars has “always” sounded, you have already lost. Even John Williams himself took the music in a lot of new directions with the prequel trilogy (and did some of the best work of his career, IMHO). I’m sure he wouldn’t want his followers to imitate his style or styles, more than doing their own thing.

    That’s why I would prefer someone other than Giacchino, who would maybe stick too much to the pastiche thing.
    That said, I don’t exactly want a Daft Punk or a Trent Reznor Star Wars either. Neither do I want a Hans Zimmer Star Wars.

    Someone who doesn’t stray too far away from the classical way, with an orchestra and with themes, but still has their own voice to add to it, instead of just imitating Williams.

    James Newton Howard might not be a bad idea…

    Takk for det Sigbjørn! Moro å leke med filmmusikkonvensjoner. 🙂

    Hurra! Forum!
    Hvis du leser dette, så betyr det at forumet er oppe og går og at alt funker helt smertefritt!

    Jeg heter da Eirik og har en gjesterolle i det nye Celluloid Tunes, som komponist av åpningstemaet.

    Men sånn ellers, så kan jeg jo avsløre at jeg er fryktelig begeistra for John Williams, Danny Elfman – og Edvard Grieg!
