THE OUTER LIMITS:ENNIO MORRICONE
He’s the visionary Italian composer who has created music for more than 500 film and television scores, from bloody crime dramas to devilish horror movies and spaghetti westerns.
His epic soundscapes have influenced Mogwai and Metallica. So now we ask: How prog is Ennio Morricone?
Popular cinema tends to make few concessions to prog rock when it comes to soundtracks. Ennio Morricone, however, is a glaring exception. In a career that’s spanned over six decades, the Italian composer has written over 500 original film and TV scores, among them The Mission, Once Upon A Time In America, Days Of Heaven, The Untouchables, Cinema Paradiso and Kill Bill.
