I think this one has more electronics in it than anything else.. I didn't want to do straight orchestra because Batman, he's not a straight character. I mean where do you get those wonderful toys from and the technology? So I thought I could embrace a bit more technology in this one.. there isn't a straight orchestral note on this score. - about his score for Batman Begins (2005)
