Original tracks by south Indian composers have been chosen for the gymnastics events at the Beijing Olympics, starting August 8.

"While my music available in the Germany-based Sonoton Library was selected earlier for the warm-up events, I am composing original tracks to suit gymnasts' body language during the Olympics," composer Lekha Rathina Kumar told IANS.

The special symphony is being created by Kumar in collaboration of keyboard player Mani Sharma, flautist Sudhakar and sitar maestro Janardan.

Earlier, Kumar's compositions were used as background scores in Hollywood film "Cloverfield" that was released in January.

Apart from Kumar, Chennai based composer-singer Sandeep Chowta is slated to score the music for opening ceremony of Beijing Olympics.
