Meta Music: Frank Lehman on Leitmotifs

Join Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) as we explore the Music of Star Wars in our segment Meta Music this week with special guest Frank Lehman (@fmlehman) of Lehman’s Leitmotifs fame. We will explore everything from how it’s done to perhaps what it means.

Episode I: The Fandom Menace

Synopsis:

Ally finds out the hard way that not all Star Wars are created equal, and not all Star Wars fans value Star Wars equally. A first time viewing of Fanboys has disastrous results. But it turns out that Star Wars, a group of friends, and a wild plan can make everything better.
