Francesco De Masi gives us in "Il terrore di notte" one great example of how music can step in the audience watching a movie.
The soundtrack underscores the action scenes, suspense and intrigue that dot the film. The composer creates varied sound textures with all kinds of instruments from the flute to the bass going through metal, wood, varied percussion or string. De Masi also creates a beautiful melodic theme intercalates at different times of the score. Thanks to their music composer provides varied sensations reinforcing film images.
World premiere release on CD.

I've never heard of the label, but apparently it's been around for a while. Doesn't anybody know if it's a legitimate, like Music Box and Intrada, or if it's more like Hakrit? Bruce? MV? Some another label head know?

Saimel is legal. They have released a lot of stuff from Spanish composers (Juan Bardem and Roque Baños works)

where have been living in the last 5 years?

As for this new release, from experience I won't blind buy pre-1964 DeMasi, but will wait for audio clips with ultra-open ears.

Apparently, Justin Boggan is not a fan of Piero Piccioni or Carlo Savina or Pierre Jansen or Giorgio Gaslini ... or ... smile

They are about 20 years publishing Spanish and Italian soundtracks.
Composers like Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Piero Piccioni, Armando Trovaioli, Francesco De Masi, Angelo Francesco Lavagnino, Bruno Nicolai, Carlo Siliotto... José Nieto, Roque Baños, Carles Cases, Juan Bardem, Eva Gancedo... are in their catalogue.

Hi, morrifan.

At present, I do not own any soundtracks by Francesco De Masi.
I hope maybe to get one before 2014, but we'll see...

...nonetheless, I'm curious about your statement.

What is it about pre-1964 De Masi that you don't like?

Personally, Italian film music from 1959 through 1964 is my favorite period for Italian soundtracks.
I love soundtracks by Roberto Nicolosi, Giovanni Fusco, Gino Marrinuzi Jr., etc., and most of all Piero Piccioni.

This is not to say that I don't care for Ennio Morricone albums, but I think, once groove entered during mid-1960s, Italian film music thereafter had less variety of orchestral scores and fashionable pop-music vibe began to dominate too much.

Still, I love Piccioni & Morricone music from 1971 (perhaps the finest year of all), but Piccioni soundtracks between 1960 & 1963 get the most re-play from me! smile

I'm considering getting the LA LAMA NEL CORPO (THE MURDER CLINIC) / LO SPETTRO (THE GHOST) CD by De Masi. Or maybe one of De Masi's Maciste albums.

What's your input on these pre-'64 titles (if you have any)?

Well, I'm just asking; I keep getting weird non-answers; it's been around a while -- so has Tsunami and now Hakrit. It's released such-and-such composer; so have the aforementioned illegitimate labels. And another one I don't recall.

Saimel is a great label that released many interesting soundtracks over the past 10+ years - both vintage Italian and contemporary Spanish composers. Lots of their titles are among my favorite releases. The label is honest and very dedicated and Mr. Juan Saiz, who is the owner, is very nice and quick in responding to all kinds of requests I've had over the years. I highly recommend checking both their recent titles and their back catalogue and supporting the label!

From my (limited) personal experience, what I've heard from Francesco De Masi that was recorded prior 1964 lacked something : it's not as consistent as his subsequent works IMO.
My 2 cents...maybe even less :-)

ToneRow My favorite Maciste score is Maciste Nelle Miniere Di Re Salomone (1964) unfortunately only five tracks survive but they are all fantastic the score has a very ominous presence that lingers throughout mixed with a combination of masculine and mysterious atmospheres not to be missed.

The other scores on the cd are equally as good in quality the whole disc is overflowing with riches.
La Rivolta Delle Gladiatrici (1973)
Il Figlio Dello Sceicco (1962)

I also enjoy La Lama Nel Corpo (1966) / Lo Spettro (1963) two more very atmospheric scores.

Francesco De Masi is a great composer and he was a great friend too.
Always is a pleasure publish a new title from him.
"Il terrore di notte" is a thriller and its music is complex with a melodic theme in different tracks.

I'm really looking forward to hearing the new De Masi. wink

One thing I have wondered about is Un Solo Grande Amore a re recording which was originally used for the LP it sounds very different in the film which sounds like Gianni Marchetti.

The other Saimel title looks very interesting
VALERIA DENTRO E FUORI - Franco Bixio
