Electronic Music Inspired By “Star Wars”

‘Even more than the visuals,” says Pitchfork, ‘the sounds of “Star Wars” are what evoke the giddy soul of the films. Williams’ score does the heavy lifting, yes, but the whirrs and shrieks of assorted creatures, the laser blasts, and endless memorable lines are almost as important…It’s this latter mix of sounds that animates “Star Wars Headspace,” a new album of electronic music inspired by the films. Executive produced by Rick Rubin, who was a teenager when “Star Wars” was released, the record crackles with adolescent exuberance, thanks to a well-chosen roster of producers.’
