    I'm often picked on by others for listening and enjoying Star Wars music more than Hip Hop, or Pop, or Billie Eilish. And while Star Wars music is (arguably) the greatest music of all time, John Williams can only make so much. I began branching out to music made by fans, and to be honest, some of it is extremely good. This is a discussion of fan music, and if you have any videos to recommend, please leave a link. Here is one of my personal favorites, made by a Star Wars fan music orchestrator. (The channel name is Samuel Kim if you're interested.)

    The Imperial March is a GO-TO soundtrack for me! In tribute to May the Fourth, I did a piano cover of The Force & The Imperial March combined. Hope you like it!

    I wrote and synthesized a soundtrack for Heir to the Empire about ten years ago now (which I shared in an old thread on these boards). I've now put it up on YouTube:


    After working on it on and off for a while, I'm almost done with Dark Force Rising as well, and I hope to post it in a week or two.

    Not sure where to put this, but I've been listening to those soundtracks from The Clone Wars season 7: it's a mix of the soundtrack from Revenge of the Sith, unreleased and released music from the last 4 episodes-arc of Clone Wars season 7. It's so beautiful that I've listening to it recently over and over again, making me wanting to watch again the 6 episodes saga of George Lucas, especially ROTS:

    Something I did some time ago that I am still pretty proud of. Original piece by me over one of my favorite scenes from Season 2 of The Mandalorian. I was lucky enough that the scene in question was musicless, allowing me to compose to it through my own feeling.

    So cool! I also love some movie soundtracks. Since I can play some musical instruments, I decided to try to play them personally. You know, how sometimes one person plays several instruments and combines everything into one video? I was planning to do something like that too. Then I learned the chosen melody and started playing. And when I decided to listen to what happened, I realized that my microphone was not working well. I checked all the instruments and found out that it was not the microphone itself that was broken, but the audio interface. It was necessary to buy another. When I started looking for something on the Internet, I came across https://www.itsaboutmusic.com/best-audio-interface-under-200 and thought it would be fine. After replacing the audio interface, I tried re-recording the video. And I did it! It remains to combine all videos and edit all parts into one video. Perhaps soon, I will be able to exhibit what I got.
