4 – Binary Sunset Theme

FRIDAY, January 31, 2020

“The Force Theme” is a musical theme repeated across the musical score of the Star Wars saga. The theme is a signature line of music and one of the most recognizable of John Williams’s Star Wars motifs. It is also known as “Binary Sunset,” or in a version featured in a Star Wars music book, “May the Force be with you.” Though originally intended by Williams to be Ben Kenobi’s theme, the music is also considered “Luke’s Theme,” due to the music first being used with Luke looking out at the sunset, and its connection with not only the Force, but Luke as well.

“The Force Theme” can be heard in all the main Star Wars movies and is one of the basic themes for the franchise.
