The Uruk-hai

Track 5 - TTT

 

(2:42) The first part of this track reconnects us with the Three Hunters as they chase the Uruk-hai who have taken Merry and Pippin. The second part of the track covers our reconnection with the alliance of the 'Two Towers', Orthanc (in Isengard) and Barad-dûr. The final 15 seconds are not in the movie.

The mood changes with more threatening music played over the Five Beat Pattern (not in movie) and transitions into...

...Sauron's Theme. The camera pans over hordes of troops emptying out of Barad-dûr. Saruman is communicating with Sauron through the palantír.

1:53

"A union exists between the Two Towers." A rhaita reprises Sauron's Theme as the camera sweeps up the side of the tower and...

...horns join in as we get to the top and the Eye of Sauron with Mount Doom erupting off in the distance.

An abrupt switch is made back to the Isengard Theme paired with the Five Beat Pattern and shots of trees meeting their doom in the fires of Isengard. HS COMMENT

Two long notes are blared on horns and move back into the Isengard Theme. This music is not used in the movie.
