what is this dduck quacking? you mean like where the score sounds like a duck when the horns play?

Here just after 1:37 is the duck quack effect. I guess they are horns.

I guess it`s neither a duck quacking sfx nor horns but a bass harmonica.

You can hear it in Simon & Garfunkel`s "The Boxer" starting at 0:36 as well:

I hope that this "duck quacking" will not become another "mixing bowls".

I'm afraid it is! XD

Although it's no secret that the alternate mix is available on the tribute CD to Jerry Goldsmith, available on the Film Music Society website

There are moments in the BOYS FROM BRAZIL score, when muted brass interject with a portion of the bad guy theme, and they sound almost duck-like.

But DON'T TELL ZOOBA.

He might go into an Information Power-Dive like he did with this MAGIC cue. big grin
