    Here's the 26th 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 20 letters A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H
    ["aeaafcaeebaeabgbgafe"]
    within this fragment of Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" (596.26-27):
    ["appears a funny colour; stoatters some; but a quite a big bug after"]

    I translated the letters into 20 musical notes, indicating durations of sounds and silence.
    (All 20 letters had to be used. No two sounds start at the same time.)
