KOM's Andy Oskwarek gives a look into the the wonderful world of Italian film composition

Radio LBB: The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue

Have you ever heard the one about the Italian Zombie film set in Manchester?

The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (aka Let Sleeping Corpses Lie) kick-started our obsession with cult Italian soundtracks; and while Giuliano Sorgini’s classic 70s score isn’t currently available on spotify we’ve dug deep to find a choice selection of classic tracks from Italian film composers. 

Ennio Morricone and Giorgio Moroder went onto achieve international success and become household names but there were plenty of other incredible composers who never really achieved recognition outside Italy. The production of films in Italy during the 60s, 70s and early 80s was relentless and most of these composers were incredibly prolific scoring hundreds of films each, often working on projects which were frequently lush, sleazy, violent and completely over the top. The resulting soundtracks covered a range of styles from funk to jazz to early electro and we’ve picked some of favourites for this month’s playlist.

So sit back with a Campari and dip a toe into the weird and wonderful world of Italian film composition.
