I'm listening to some of Bill Brown's stuff on his web site.
There's a particular percussive sound used in his work, that I hear in a lot of soundtracks, but I can't figure out what it is.
It's from Return to Castle Wolfenstein.
Now, from go about 50 seconds in, and you'll hear these soft orchestra hits. There's sort of a percussive non-pitched element in the hits that I can't quite place. Sort of a "click." Perhaps it's strings playing col legno but I honestly can't remember what that sounds like.
Anybody know what that is exactly?
