Ennio Morricone - Crime and Dissonance

Abe Request.

Ennio is not only the most famous film music composer of all time, he's the been one of the most innovative and daring. The man was one of the founding members of the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuovo Consonanza for chrissakes, he knows his shit. In this compilation you'll hear why. Compiled by Demented Cunthead Supreme Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls) and released on Mike Patton's Ipecac label, "Crime and Dissonance" has some of the freakiest, spookiest and most ominous pieces Morricone composed, mainly for Spaghetti Westerns and Giallos. True brain-frying shit. 2 CDs on one file.

This is one of those must-haves for just about everybody interested in music just off the beaten path enough to conjure strange dreams and perhaps even nightmares."-Thom Jurek

  1. Brain frying shit indeed. Fucking hell I didn't know Ennio was dabbling in psychedelic improv sessions. This shit is insane.

  2. Have you seen any of the films these songs are from? With songs like these the films must be fucking crazy.

  3. I've seen a few, like Argento's "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage" and Fulci's "A Lizard in a Woman Skin". Crazy ass shit indeed.
