Meta Music: What The Force Theme

Join Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) as we explore the Music of Star Wars in our new segment Meta Music with Christy Carew (@Christy_Carew). We will explore everything from how it’s done to perhaps what it means.

Christy is a composer working in Hollywood and is a huge John Williams fan. She has been chosen as a composer fellow for the 2018 Sundance Institute Film Music Lab taking place this summer up at Skywalker Sound. She is also composing the music for the upcoming six-part documentary series about women in the Star Wars fandom, Looking for Leia. She is also an amazing Keyboard warrior on Tumblr. Check out her music and Meta’s at http://www.christycarew.com

In this episode we talk through the Force Theme and it’s meaning, generally gush about music, and talk about Christy’s first memories of Star Wars.
