This is a "what is that" sort of question, and also, a "why can't I find an example of it" question.
In some older martial arts movies, and goofy action sequences, the action will slow down as some flies through the air, or does something incredible and instead of music or a slow-mo sound, there is this really reverb-y "tick tick tick tick". I don't think it's used seriously any more.
So questions are: -Can you give an example, cause I sure can't find one. -Does it have a name? -How is/was it first made?
