Set against the backdrop of 1960s San Francisco, Birth of the Dragon is a modern take on the classic movies that Bruce Lee was known for. It takes its inspiration from the epic and still controversial showdown between an up-and-coming Bruce Lee and Kung Fu master Wong Jack Man – a battle that gave birth to a legend.
Lakeshore Records will release the Birth of the Dragon score on 8/25, featuring music by composers H. Scott Salinas and Reza Safinia. For the score for Birth of the Dragon, a Bruce Lee fable, Reza Safinia collaborated with H Scott Salinas. Together they fused traditional Chinese instrumentation with orchestra and industrial electronica to score an East meets West clash between the Shaolin temple, and Lee’s philosophy of opening Kung Fu to the West.
