    I noticed a sequence of 97 letters A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H
    ["eeEeeBeahedhecdbbadeebadebadebedaaddadaeahaFheaffahaeegagadagfdDaehddedddeefedeahcafgaefadechaeed"]
    within this fragment of James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" (201.04-09):
    ["ore ouse! Essonne inne! // By earth end the cloudy but I badly want a brandnew bankside, bedamp and I do, and a plumper at that! For the putty affair I have is wore out, so it is, sitting,yaping and waiting for my old Dane hodder dodderer, my life in death companion, my frugal key of our larder, my much-altered"].

    I translated the letters into 97 musical notes, indicating durations of sounds and silence.
    (All these letters had to be used. No two sounds start at the same time.)

    The result follows Mark Griskey's "Sith Tomb" from the KOTOR 2 game soundtrack preceded by a play on the Imperial March composed by John Williams.

    [Note to Joyceans: The 10th note is "E", not "A": I followed 2012 Bindervoet & Henkes edition of FW, and there is "earth nd", not "earth and".]
