Manic percussion, tense staccato strings, discordant piano riffs, and jazz-rock motifs – this is Il Maestro at his finest. Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present the definitive release of Ennio Morricone’s score to Dario Argento’s 1972 giallo classic FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (a.k.a. 4 mosche di velluto grigio). Based around a psychologically embattled rock musician who finds himself in extraordinarily mysterious circumstances, Argento’s third film (as well as the last offering of his “Animal Trilogy”) is an excellent example of what the genre has to offer – a true Italian thriller/horror film that is sure to please any discerning genre film aficionado.
This superb offering by Maestro Morricone, with orchestration by the legendary Bruno Nicolai, features everything a fan of the weird, avant-garde, and macabre could want, including hauntingly beautiful vocals by renowned Italian singer, Edda Dell’Orso. Take heed, dear friends, for a bevy of sublime sonic sounds will undoubtedly delight your ears. Perfect for late night listening or for DJing out to an audience of (cult)ivated and dedicated cinephiles, this soundtrack is a beauty to behold. Stunningly packaged with retina pleasing artwork, see how many flies you can spot …on grey velvet.
