Scored for: synthesized percussion (drums, cymbals, bells, etc.)
This is a rescored excerpt from the Wachowski’s 1999 film The Matrix. In this scene, Neo (Keanu Reeves) has been programmed with a martial arts skills set, and demonstrates his newfound prowess for Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). The fight is scored for percussion only, using oriental instruments consistent with the visual setting and subject.
I had to edit the audio track judiciously to capture the dialog, so there is some occasional bleed-through of Don Davis’s original soundtrack, which I matched and complemented with my own percussion.
