For Dune Sea of Tatooine, Williams employs organic tonalities of woodwinds, brass, and strings to create an eerie, desolate mood as C-3PO wanders across the vast desert. R2-D2's adventure is conveyed in Jawa Sandcrawler, a piece which works as pure music as well as with the film. The Jawa theme is mostly associated with the oboe and English horn. Titled "The Little People" on the conductor's score, the light instrumentation conveys the childlike mischievousness of the diminutive scavengers. Towards the end of the piece Williams depicts the lost and obsolete remnants of a technocratic culture through use of muted trumpet, bassoon, and dissonant chords of bending strings. The cue reaches a crescendo of brass and resolves with a statement of the Imperial theme with French horn and timpani as a task force begins searching for the refugee robots.
