Psycho

ENNIO MORRICONE THEMES

Psycho

Psycho is the second in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. This collection is dedicated to Morricone's work with Italian directors spanning the late 1960s up to the 1980s. These scores accompany some darkly dramatic films, some veering into the realms of horror. This is Morricone where he feels truly at home, working with the nuances and drama of the Italian psyche as laid bare by Italian filmmakers, selected on 2LPs.

Un Tranquillo Posto di Campagna (A Quiet Place in the Country) was directed in 1968 by Elio Petri and starred Franco Nero and Vanessa Redgrave. Morricone wanted his soundtrack to represent the unstable environment that Elio Petri created for this tale of personal madness, artistic chaos, and supernatural violence. In addition to the string orchestra, Morricone features the famous improvisers of the 'Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza' of which he was a founding member. Morricone adds a child's voice, Alessandroni's haunting whistle, along with passages of isolated piano notes, reed sounds, chimes, and reverb to produce a haunting score.

Copkiller was directed in 1983 by Roberto Faenza and starred Harvey Keitel and John Lydon. Lydon was originally intended to write the music for the film, a task that was eventually given to Ennio Morricone instead. Morricone wrote some chillingly effective music to describe the bloody deeds of the film's policeman murderer. Sinfonia di una Città (Symphony of a City) contains many well-known Morricone detective movie sound elements: his eirie use of wind instruments and piercing percussive piano interventions are underpinned by an ostinato funky bass line that moves stubbornly along with the action on screen.
