After writing the Overture, I set out to create a piece with a completely different character while using the same themes. After a while I noticed that I was trying to force 2 pieces into one: It simply didn't work. So I separated them and here is the result: A hilarious tour de force through the "Sith" universe. The other one is still in the works.

Musically I decided that it's time to stop imitating an other composer, so this one is more in my own style. Its based on a variation of the "funny" Sith theme and begins in a more descriptive fashion. After about 2 minutes it segues into a driving rythm and a 3-note motiv is introduced. The rest of the piece consists of mingled variations and juxtapositions of that theme with previously introduced material. Comparing it to the "overture", you will notice that this one is very rich in different harmonies, while the Overture was based strictly on 3rds, 4ths and 5ths and harmonic progressions which result from those.

Please note that this particular score isn't supposed to be played by humans. It's a sketch score, which I use for orchestration (therefore not very cleaned up). I'm thinking about reworking the middle part and making a concert piece for 2 pianos out of it. What do you think about this idea? Thanks for listening!

!!IMPORTANT ADDITION!! Please do not listen to the Scorch playback. Although I set it to NOT change instruments on playback, it ignores my setttings and does change the piano sound e.g. to Clarinet. Try the mp3, which was recorded with a very good Piano sample. It's really worth trying!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
