Since its television debut in 1966, the various incarnations of Star Trek have been host to a multitude of composers – from Alexander Courage and Gerald Fried to Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner. Over the decades an extremely rich library of styles, techniques, sounds, and approaches have been employed, and the soundtracks are my personal favorite place to plumb for ideas. In this class we’re going to go decade by decade, listening to and dissecting musical gems across every section of the orchestra; rediscover sounds and harmonies which sound fresh again; and celebrate the many heroic moments and mustache-twirling bad guys from every corner of this musical galaxy. Whether you’re a fan of Star Trek or not, there is a lifetime of musical gold to be found in its universe. Don’t miss this one!
