Star Wars Rebels composer Kevin Kiner gives an interview on the influence that composer John Williams has had on him and the score of the animated TV Series. Kiner talks about his huge guitar collection and how having been in a rock band allows him to add something different to the score of Rebels. We even get to hear some temp tracks in development and how Kiner mixes in Williams touches from the score of Star Wars: A New Hope.
Rebels acts as a bridge between the time periods of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and it's really interesting to hear some of those familiar melodies come back, in some part, into the show.
I couldn't help checking out Kiner's IMDB page and over the years he has done the score for a lot of TV and a few video games. Some notable projects other than the aforementioned are Stargate SG-1, Star Trek: Enterprise, Tremors 3, The Invisible Man (TV Series), GoldenEye 007 (video game), Nick Fury: Agent of Shield, Superboy, Hell on Wheels, and CSI: Miami.
