Quarter to nine on a hot summers evening and 70,000 spectators assembled under the Calatrava designed Olympic stadium roof wait to greet 4 billion TV viewers to an event Greece has been preparing 7 years for.
The countdown starts, a video directed by talented filmaker Athina Tsangari, with soundtrack scored by Julian, is played out to the world.
All the sounds in the countdown film were naturally recorded instruments and effects sculptured to create the soundscape.
Information about the creation of the drum sounds can be found on Drums
