Who can forget the classic Adam West Batman theme, composed by Neal Hefti? Once you hear a couple of those “Na-na-na’s”, that tune is stuck in your head and it’ll definitely take a few hours, if not a few days, for it to leave. And I don’t know about you but I enter this phase where I start punching people while screaming, “POW!” and “BIFF!” It’s resulted in more than a few assault charges, but I feel like it’s worth it.
Seems like I’m not the only one who enjoys this theme. However, composer/musician Ulrich Seidal took it a step further by covering the theme using real bat sounds. According to the description of the video, Seidal says that first, “…these ultrasounds were digitally reduced to frequencies that are audible. Then the different batsounds were assigned different keys on a keyboard.” It’s a really interesting end result, although it’s not something I would find myself listening to on a regular basis.
