Storm Over Asia - Original Score for Kino Video
The score by Timothy Brock is one of his best. Composed in an Oriental style, it keeps the film going, while adding greatly to its enjoyment. Despite the 128 minute running time, the score is never repetitious or boring.

The audio is presented in Dolby digital stereo 2.0. While not particularly forceful or dynamic, it still serves the film well. Storm over Asia is, of course, a silent film, so the audio is made up entirely of Timothy Brock's score, performed by the Olympia Chamber Orchestra.
