Alexandre Desplat introduces me to the gong drum

Recently, award-winning composer Alexandre Desplat was at the Sony Scoring Stage to record his score to the highly anticipated drama, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Directed by David Fincher and stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. While catching up on the scoring session, I was HIGHLY EXCITED by the discovery of a gong drum.Look at this thing. I want to write a gong drum concerto. It's being played there by Greg Goodall ... what a job. I wonder what the likelihood is of one being in NZ. Hmm.....
