    'Attack of the Clones': Over 125 minutes of New Star Wars Music
    "Knowing the Score"

    Attack of the Clones now has a musical score. John Williams composed and conducted the stirring symphonic music recorded in Abbey Studios by the London Symphony Orchestra. Overseeing the scoring alongside Director George Lucas was Producer Rick McCallum. "It went very, very well -- effortlessly, as it always does with John. Hearing a musical score for the first time is one of the most wonderful events that can happen to you. Obviously, John hears the music when he?s writing it, but no one gets the opportunity to fully experience it until then. Even though you may have heard little melodies on the piano, it never has the same impact unless you can really read music well to understand it."

    The London Symphony Orchestra included 110 players per day, plus a one-day appearance by a full choir. About a dozen people behind the scenes -- music editor, music mixers and engineers -- were there to capture the music for its addition to the film. "There?s a massive amount of music, over 125 minutes worth," says McCallum. "That?s a lot for a film; the average film has probably about 40. George made maybe five or six changes with certain cues that he wanted a little bit more intensity put in, or less. That was very easily done, especially with someone as talented as John is and as well as with music editor Ken Wannberg."

    The Williams Star Wars leitmotif style is present, with key melodies denoting characters and relationships. Certain themes from Episode I will reappear, while others from the original trilogy will begin to be foreshadowed. "It really is an arc, now, and the music brings in all the films together," says McCallum. "The major themes that will come in the series start in Episode I, build in Episode II, become more refined in Episode III, and then are there for IV, V and VI. One of the first new things that came up was the love theme, and thematically, it's beautifully structured, it?s really interesting, and has really wonderful moments that preview what is about to come in terms of character development."

    'Attack of the Clones' Score Details

    "The Main Title is the exact same it's always been. Nothing new here at all. "Anakin's Theme" is much more prominent this time, but delving much more into "The Imperial March". There are is a brand new love theme, one being kept kind of secret, as they just printed at the top of the sheet music "The Love Theme." (I certainly hope that doesn't stick). It was recorded within the context of the movie, as well as a separate musical piece. "Palpatine" (that's how Williams primarily addressed) and his theme is back...this time much darker and sinister than Episode One. With it is also what was titled "The Dark Side" or something similiar (snippets of this was heard with Episode 1, the slow beating of drums and "cha-cha" sound heard with Maul and Sidious). "Duel of the Fates" makes a prominent return also. There was one curious new theme that was included that my source thinks may be that of a Fett Legacy-type thing. Not too sure about it, however. Lastly, "The Light of the Force" is going to make several new appearances as well. Overall, this score is going to be darker than Episode 1."

    Sony Classical to Release 'Episode II' CD on April 30

    Ich freu mich natürlich auch auf den Soundtrack. Ich nehme mir auch vor, mit dem Kauf bis nach dem Film zu warten, aber ich weiss wie es um meine Selbstbeherrschung steht.
    Hoffentlich unterlaufen den Verantwortlichen nicht wieder so Schnitzer bei der Betitelung der Stücke, wie z.B. "Qui-Gon's Noble End" und "Qui-Gon's Funeral". Ein Freund von mir wollte möglichst spoiler-frei ins Kino gehen, kauft sich den Soundtrack und liest die Titel der Stücke.

    Ich werde mir den Soundtrack sobald es geht bestellen. Ich kann nicht länger auf diese berauschende Musik warten.

    Ich auch nicht. Ich werd mir die CD gleich am Erscheinungstag holen!

    Besonders cool sind die Aussagen von GL, dass die Musik schon Grundzüge aus der OT hat.

    TFN hat das Bild eines Werbeposters für den Soundtrack gepostet. Klick mich
    Es wird 4! verschiedene Cover geben. Das normale Kinoposter, Jango Fett, Padme mit Anakin und ein Cover mit Yoda.

    Ausserdem wird das Love-Theme als Single-CD ausgekoppelt. Das Love-Theme hat nun auch einen Namen "Across the Stars".
