I just came across an interesting post on the TrekMovie.com web site about a 175-page thesis written in 1986 by Cameron N. Patrick, analyzing Jerry Goldsmith’s musical score for Star Trek – The Motion Picture. Cameron Patrick is a composer, orchestrator, and violinist. He discusses the history of the score, the instrumentation, themes, cues, and more. Film Score Monthly has published a downloadable copy of it on their web site, and TrekMovie.com also has a link for downloading a copy. See the links below. Check it out!
