Metal clangs   Sunday, September 22, 2002 (4:18 a.m.) 

Does anyone know what that percussion is that Horner uses so frequently in most of his action cues? I describe it as "metal clang", it can be heard clearly from 4:22 to 4:24 during track 6 of the second CD, and during most of the track 7 on the first CD, at 4:36 and from 4:50 to 4:55, for instance. Could that be lower music box or celesta? Does anyone know what it is and how is it played? Thanx!

Those clangs are made by an Anvil, and are struck like a xylophone,only
more agressively.

It's a musical version of a piece of welding equipment :
When a metal tool like a rivet or file,etc is made, it is placed on
an anvil while still red-hot and flattened into shape by hammering it,
producing a clanging sound.

Hope this helps a little.
I love its relentless piercing tone,and can also be heard often
in "The Perfect Storm" track 7:'Coast Guard Rescue'
