The Empire Strikes Back: the Music Part II

March 27, 201937 min
We look at the music of the first act of The Empire Strikes Back: the planet Hoth. Multiple cues are discussed, as well as the creative process of iterating on musical ideas. We even get to hear restored music that was written and performed for many long sequences, but was cut from the film. Lastly, we focus on the battle in the snow, and the moment that the Imperial March is established as a theme for Darth Vader himself.  Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
