The editorial comment erroneously states that there is a timpani hit at the outset of the movie. According to the score there is no timpani. It is scored for synth japanese drum, and second synth has a low E (in octaves). The patch is a "Brassy Snap" (Full-bodied & ominous). The chord, for anyone who cares, is (as spelled from bottom to top) E,(3 below middle C), E (octave above), B (fifth above), G (min 6th above), D (fifth above), E (Second above), Bb (tritone above), C# (augmented second above). Also, see my comments further below concerning the raptor theme.
