Happy Birthday, Ennio!

November 10, 2013


Happy Birthday, maestro Ennio Morricone, born November 10, 1928! His 60’s stuff is just brilliant and have been such an influence on me. Very few composers managed to pull off such a great mix of contemporary “pop” sounds with both avant garde and classical music. No matter the subject, budget or any other constraints, every film benefitted from his work. It’s iconic these days, but back in the mid-60’s, his The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly soundtrack was deemed quite futuristic and genre defying.

Treat yourself to some marvellous sounds by checking out Morricone Rocks‘ amazing playlist on YouTube, collecting tons of his work (that I wrote about earlier here) at http://www.youtube.com/user/MorriconeRocks, and how about giving my Morricone-inspired EP The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef a spin below:
