Reviews[]

In 2014, Mark Koval, the composer, made this statements for the as part of the 3rd Volume of Original Soundtracks from Batman: The Animated Series.

"In composing my score, I drew upon traditional japanese scales for my harmonic ideas. Tis is a significant episode because we learn about Batman's innermost vulnerability. We learn about him during his years as a martial arts student; how he struggles with wanting to be the best, and feeling that he is never good enough. Of course, the master addresses these fears with terse bits of wisdom. I chose to score these scenes more intimately, to reflect the unwavering Zen of the Master's classroom." - The score's most striking aspect is its integration of shakuhachi (a traditional Asian bamboo flute, tuned to the minor pentatonic scale) performed by an artist renowned for his mastery of the instrument, Masakazu Yoshizawa. "His talents were invaluable. I truly enjoyed the opportunity to work with him, and to blend the diverse musical languages of the Eastern and Western worlds."
