Be Part Of The Dark Knight Rises Score By Recording Yourself Chanting

It was back in May when the official viral for The Dark Knight Rises launched online. Folks that visited the movie's official website,, were treated to a short sound file of what sounded like people chanting. When decoded, it led fans to the first official image of Tom Hardy as Bane. That same chant was heard once again at the end of the first teaser trailer that came out in July, but that won't be the last you hear of the song. Apparently the chanting is part of Hans Zimmer's score for the finale of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, and now he's extended an invitation for you to contribute to it.

Over at UJAM Zimmer has left a post saying that fans can record themselves singing the chant and he may cut it into the final score. Here's Zimmer's entire message:

"I'm shining the bat-signal up into the sky to call you all! We need to hear your voices! Now and Loud! We are creating the sound of a worldwide chant. Everyone come and be part of it. It's easy:There is no such thing as out-of-tune, no timing we can't fix later. If you mumble, growl, scream or whisper, it's all good. Make it yours. If you only get halfway through, no problem! Do it alone, bring your friends, but do it with energy and commitment.Let your voice be heard and be a part of our adventure! So we need every one of you out there to join. By signing up and recording your voice, you could be a part of "The Dark Knight Rises".

Taking part is actually fairly easy. All you have to do is go over to the site and listen to the example recording. Basically, the lyrics are - as posted by one of the commenters on the site - "Deh-shay, deh-shay bah-sah-rah, bah-sah-rah," which is apparently Moroccan for "He Rises, He Rises". You then click "Record Your Chant," enter your birth date and the country where you live, and you're all set (you may also have to create an account with the site, or you can just log in using your Facebook). Be part of Batman history! Go to the site and record your chant now!
