Los Angeles Philharmonic opening night gala concert
celebrating the work of John Williams

Concert with film including a specially commissioned animation of
original Star Wars concept drawings from the Lucasfilm archive, with kind permission
of Lucasfilm, and a new film to accompany Soundings, John Williams' original composition to
celebrate the Disney Concert Hall

Conductor Gustavo Dudamel
Projection design Netia Jones/Lightmap




"To accompany "Throne Room" and the Finale of "Star Wars," which Dudamel conducted with the magnificence of a space-age Pomp and Circumstance march, Jones animated original storyboard sketches. Music that has become cliché felt renewed, as if Williams' score were what prodded the creative process."
Los Angeles Times




"One particular highlight was an approximately nine-minute video, which ran during the Star Wars compositions, showing original sketches and blueprints for the film, many of them brought to life with animation by British artist and director Netia Jones."
