Inktober Day 27 Prompt: Music

Inktober Day 27 Prompt, Music

The music of Star Wars is as iconic as the characters and the images on screen. The names John Williams and George Lucas go hand in hand. Not only is the musical score a vital part of each installment, diagetic, or in-world music can be heard in many of the films. It began with the first film, Star Wars: A New Hope, when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi enter the cantina on Mos Eisley. The cantina band is heard playing in the background. This diagetic form of music appeared again in Return of the Jedi, and can be heard throughout the prequels and sequel films. And, The Mandalorian is no different.

The Ferryman

The Mandalorian kicks things off right from Chapter 1. After Mando captures his bounty, the Mythrol, he needs to get a ride back to the Razor Crest. And, who should appear to come to his aid? A Garindan! This is the Ferryman. He summons the hover taxi. However, he doesn’t just wave his arms—he actually plays an instrument that resembles a flute-like recorder! This seems so right for this series since the amazing soundtrack for The Mandalorian, scored by Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Goransson, incorporates the recorder in the theme. Not only is there an incredible score unique to each chapter, there is this in-world music tying it back to the original trilogy.
