We need to hear your voices! Now and Loud! We are creating the sound of a worldwide chant. Everyone come and be part of it. It's easy:

There is no such thing as out-of-tune, no timing we can't fix later. If you mumble, growl, scream or whisper, it's all good. Make it yours. If you only get halfway through, no problem! Do it alone, bring your friends, but do it with energy and commitment.

Let your voice be heard and be a part of our adventure!"!


So we need every one of you out there to join. By signing up and recording your voice, you could be a part of "The Dark Knight Rises".

No, but you have to do it with UJAM (free music-making application).

Listening to it, I'm kind of intrigued. Is this Bane's theme, or what the crowd at the Heinz field are meant to be chanting for the standoff between Batman and Bane? At least we know it's the same chant we heard before in the teaser:

No idea what language it's in, but possibly Sanskrit (used for John Williams for Duel of the Fates in THE PHANTOM MENACE and Don Davis for Neodammerung in THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS) or some other "dead" language.

Sounds like:

Dishi, dishi! Batara, batara!
Dishi, dishi! Batara, batara! etc.


It's a basic 5/4 rhythm counted in 8th notes (5/4 = 10/8 = 123 123 12 12 or 12 12 123 123) - i.e. like the HALLOWEEN and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE themes. Pretty catchy.

The treatment heard in this recording is much slower than in the trailer, and can be divided into 3 clearly distinguishable sections.

The first is an introduction played by Japanese Taiko drums - probably including the huge Odaiko. All used extensively in the 2 previous BATMAN scores, along with gong drums, toms, roto toms etc. There's also cellos and basses playing slap pizzicato on certain accented notes. This percussion ensemble accompanies the chanting till the end.



This intro is for 2 bars and is in 4/4.

The second section is antiphonal (call and response) chant lasting 8 bars, and also in 4/4. Sounds similar to a Haka - the Maori war chant performed by the NZ All Blacks in Rugby Union games.

The structure is of 2 8th notes followed by a quarter note rest, chanted by the leader. Then after that rest, the crowd repeats the same word - Dishi. Then likewise for the next word - Batara - in the following bar. This 2 bar pattern is repeated 4 times.

The third section is the one heard in the teaser, only this time much slower. The meter is now 5/4 with a slight increase in tempo. This also lasts 8 bars.

...no, actually, just Blessed.



Interesting stuff though. Might take a shot at it. I demand billing on the poster, though, if my voice is used.
