Me as a Song

John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra – Jedi Steps and Finale

This song best represents me as a person because of the story telling Williams uses. Looking exclusively at the “Jedi Steps” portion of the piece (0:00-2:10), the song starts off slowly and mysterious. As it carries on, the melody grows, as if going up a flight of stairs. I feel this bit represents going through life uphill, but not in a totally negative way. I see it as more of overcoming challenges brought forth.

The climax of the “Jedi Steps” portion features the famous “Force Theme” first seen in Star Wars (1977). This part is when I meet a goal I am working towards. It is the moment I am at the summit and I am looking down (reflecting on my progression).
