Meta Music: Solo A Star Wars Story

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 that took 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 Solo A Star Wars Story Soundtrack composed by John Williams and John Powell. 

  • Discussion on the Solo Score John Williams/John Powell
  • The Adventures of Young Han Solo
  • The comparison of Ben and Han Solo musically
  • The Cloud Riders / Ancestral power connection to the Mask
  • The Source music – “Chicken in the Pot” What do those lyrics mean?

  • That Love theme “Lando’s Closet” (A bit on what this could mean Reylo wise)

Review: Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi

Charles Soule is a good writer and has done a solid job introducing all the basics of the High Republic, and it is a good starting point for this new Star Wars transmedia project. Light of the Jedi also a masterclass of detailed worldbuilding. However, the heroes lack characterization and they seem, at times, brainwashed. Unless you have been craving the Kennedy’s Camelot and Superhero!Jedi, this novel might make you roll your eyes a little bit. That said, if you are in the market for full-metal villains and wholesome laser sword heroics, Light of the Jedi might be just your jam.
