| Ennio Morricone - Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura |
Far from the Spaghetti Westerns that made him famous, this soundtrack to the 1971 film, Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura sees Morriconne reconnect with the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. The group, of which
| Morricone was a founding member, were instrumental in incorporating noise and atonality to 20th century composition. Here they utilize that instinct along with a burgeoning love for free jazz, in creating a strange, propulsive and disjointed soundtrack to Enzo Castellari's "The Cold Eyes of Fear" The film was notable for Castellari's visual style and in mirroring the chances he took Morricone too has created something that lasts far outside the film's plot. The soundtrack languished long forgotten until a 2000 cd issue and now Dagored has put it on vinyl with an incredible bit of packaging that reimagines the cover in flawless style. Its not a soundtrack for those looking for background music, but if you're looking for a walk into experimentation then its a welcomed romp.
