Clif Walker‘s Gotham (1940) is written to depict the mysterious and dangerous city, Gotham, in which the superhero Batman existed. A slow, steady, and sullen piece, the music gradually builds to a climax of triplet, march-like rhythms and dissonant harmonies. Walker also includes a host of auxiliary percussion instruments like brake drums, granite blocks, a flexatone, a bell tree, and a bevy of cymbals, which reflect the hard, crime-ridden, and industrial nature of Gotham City.
