"The music is definitely heroic. We actually used a 70-piece orchestra with a 40-piece choir. Then, underneath all of that, I have a lot of African and ethnic percussion grooves that I created here at my home studio. I wanted to service the movie in a way that made it grand and big. But at the same time, I didn't want to lose the whole notion of who these guys were and where they came from. So I used the ethnic percussion as a subtle kind of flavor. I didn't want to go too over the top with it, like blues guitars and such. That kind of thing has been done before."
