    Here's the 4th of the 30 Variations on Star Wars Themes by John Williams.
    Which I found hiding in a book by James Joyce (died 1941).

    I noticed a sequence of 30 letters A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H ["baadeachfacfabfeageeeabacefaee"]
    within this fragment of Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" (042.33-34):
    ["balls and poplin in search of a croust of pawn to busy professional gentlemen, a brace of palesmen"]

    I translated the letters into 30 musical notes, indicating durations of sounds and silence.
    (All 30 letters had to be used. No two sounds start at the same time.)
