Project #443

I am in the midst of a project.

It’s a project that I am actually following through on: a five song EP covering Morricone’s score to “Gli Scassinatori” (1971). I am already two songs in to it. Hopefully it doesn’t come off as to sacrilegious. I’m not a “visionary” like Zack Snyder.

I’ve been collecting a lot of obscure Morricone albums and this one came off as his most catchy and fun… so I couldn’t wait to get my grubby mitts all over it. The film itself is pretty standard and not too exciting. As you can see from the trailer, Ennio gets top billing along with the actors! Awesome.

Here are the first two tracks from the EP. When I’m finished, I'll post the complete album for those who would be interested.

Track 1: Gli Scassinatori

Track 2: Tema D'Amore
