I'm trying to figure out how the instrumentation of a particular section of music.
The piece is from the video game Halo 3 titled Sierra 117: Released/Wild Life/Another Walk by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori. I'm interested in the beginning of the middle section which (I'm guessing) is called Wild Life (starts at 2:32 in the linked video).
The instruments I can pick out are:
- Bass drum
- Some other drum, maybe snare?
- Tambourine/Cymbals/Sleigh bells?
- Some sort of impact crash?
- Triangle/Someone striking a music stand with a metal bar at 2:54?
The percussive instruments are the ones I'm having trouble identifying, particularly the metallic-sounding ones. Maybe they are prepared or aren't your everyday instrument. I'm curious to know how these sounds are made!
