Kevin Kiner and the Music of Ahsoka

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, April 14th at Laemmle North Hollywood as we welcome back Kevin Kiner to discuss his score to the recent hit show “Ahsoka” on Disney+! This is Kevin’s first foray into live action Star Wars, but hardly the beginning of his involvement in the Star Wars Universe, having previously scored over 200 episodes of the animated shows “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels”.
Kevin will talk about his process of going from mockup to stage, recording each episode with live orchestra at the Newman Stage on Fox Studios. Joining Kevin will be his co-composers Sean and Deana Kiner, discussing their own contributions to the score. Orchestrator Nolan Markey will also be joining to discuss the collaborative process. We’ll be digging into specific cues from the series, hearing how Kevin’s music has evolved from both the original scores from the films and his own themes from the previous shows, as the characters make their transitions from animation to live-action. Kevin will also be printing out a limited number of scores to give out on a first-come, first-serve basis!

Annie Award-winning composer Kevin Kiner has also been honored with multiple Emmy and other Annie Nominations, and won 20 BMI Film & TV Awards, making him one of the most versatile and sought-after composer in Hollywood. Over more than a decade, working with George Lucas and Dave Filoni, Kevin scored all seven seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which earned him the 2021 Annie Award for “Best Music – TV/ Media” for the series finale episode “Victory and Death”, as well as a Primetime Emmy nomination. His other diverse credits include HBO Max’s Peacemaker, Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico, HBO Max’s Titans and Doom Patrol, Showtime’s City on a Hill, AMC’s hit series Dark Winds and Hell on Wheels, CBS’s CSI: Miami, and CW’s Jane the Virgin. From his intimate, soloistic guitar music to his grand orchestral music, Kevin has transported audience from deserts to metropolises – and even to a galaxy far, far away.
