Dagored and Light in the Attic have thankfully joined together to bring us more limited edition Ennio Morricone scores. This probably ages me quite a bit, but playing the Red Dead series makes me realize how strong Morricone’s influence was – to a certain extent, other Rockstar games soundtracks as well. His signature rolling bass lines are sure to lodge themselves in your ears. The great thing about his soundtracks is that you don’t necessarily need to see the film to appreciate them. Le Foto… goes from these progressive jazz odysseys to the typical fair you’d associate with horror movies back to something you’d associate with Woodstock. Surrounding the entire soundtrack is this creeping fear of the unknown – representing the darkness on the album cover. Waterphone and the skipping melody, accompanied with the cacophony of woodwinds and strings, build and build the anxiety expertly. This will make you feel like you’re living in your own 70s horror movie. Check out Le Foto… below via the Spotify player and see what you think of it. Cheers!

 

The Details

Morricone’s soundtrack to the obscure 1970 Italian Thriller, Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene, is a very nervous listening experience. In film, the atmosphere created by the effect of a disturbing soundtrack causes much of the tension. A percentage of this score has a very sinister ambience, highlighted by Morricone’s sublime usage of the human voice. Italian soprano Edda Dell’Orso’s cascading vocal tones mix unsettlingly with the stabbing Morricone strings, befitting the movie’s Hitchcockian moments. Genius.
