These are Skywalker Sound sound effects of sparks chirping, clicking, hissing, etc. Most of these sounds / sound effect clusters/combos were probably designed by Gary Rydstrom.

One of the spark chirps (see first audio sample) debuted in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980); possibly created by either Ben Burtt or Randy Thom.
