The Wraiths attack the hobbits on Weathertop while Shore develops his Mordor themes in d-minor, slowly building a crescendo as the hooded villains move in for the kill. Even timpani get in on the action, presenting heavy melodic phrases from the Threat of Mordor.
When Frodo places the Ring on his finger and experiences his vision in the Shadow World, Shore introduces a tangle of aleatoric woodwinds, strings and bowed cymbals that was replaced by sound effects in the final film.
