When Sony Classics requested original vinyl masters for a new release of Star Wars soundtracks that started us on a mission to archive and preserve all the music of Star Wars. A tour of the Lucasfilm archives made us realize we were looking at a 40-year history of film scoring and at some point in the near future some of this material could not be played or accessed for reuse. We will discuss the format choice, transfer process, database creation, and editing process. The goal? .... how to future-proof accessibility of some of the greatest film music of all time.
