dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents a composition using orchestral techniques gleaned from an analysis of the scores of film composer John Williams. Areas of focus include melodic and rhythmic support, harmonic choices, conducting considerations, chord voicings both within a section and across the orchestra, and dynamics and articulations. Whether it be for film, concert music for orchestra, Olympic or network themes, John Williams is responsible for creating some of the most memorable music of the last half-century. The manner in which he orchestrates is central to his success. While Williams orchestrations appear simplistic, a closer look reveals a rich, studied approach to orchestrating based on a neo-romantic soundscape.
