We’ve previously covered The Mandalorian extensively. And recently, we even broke down the music of show:
Ludwig Göransson On The Mandalorian’s Music
Finally, and while you are at it, check out that music video:
“Speaking of his music for the show, and his collaboration with the Star Wars creative crew, the composer said, “I read the script early on, and I had a conversation with [creator and executive producer] Jon Favreau about what we’re trying to do. He showed me some artwork and pictures. I got very inspired, and I just closed myself off in my studio for a month and surrounded myself with all different instruments. I just started recording myself. It felt like meditation.
“This was how I used to write music as a kid,” added Göransson. “I wanted to get back a little bit into that mentality, because I remember watching Star Wars for the first time as a kid. The music, especially, had such an impact on me. I wanted to reconnect. It was kind of like a journey in itself. Each instrument brought me to another. I’d start with a recorder, and thanks to those instruments, I got inspiration. And I went to the piano and played something else.
“And then I went to the guitars, and then I went to the drums. I wrote about five songs, and these songs became the material that I used throughout the show.”
