The music of The Empire Strikes Back had as much of an impact, if not more, on moviegoers as did the compositions for the original 1977 film. On the heels of his award-winning soundtrack from A New Hope, John Williams had a tight window and a ton of pressure to create the music for the second Star Wars movie. For Star Wars Oxygen Vol. 5, David W. Collins brings us a close look at Williams' process of writing and recording the themes and motifs for Episode V. Listen to scenes from Cloud City's carbon freezing chamber before the music was added, along with analysis of The Imperial March, and even hear from Williams himself in rare vintage interviews. All this and more as Star Wars Oxygen transitions from A New Hope into The Empire Strikes Back!
