From soundtrackcollector.com:

It is not quit clear which of these titles have been written as Library Music. Tracks 8, 10 and 13 have perhaps been composed for Sans Mobile Apparant (1971) and perhaps some or all other titles for Attenti Al Buffone (1975).

Yes of course Thor. I mistook this title with another one because I was thinking of the experimental style of the DIMENSIONI SONORE. The whole side of OPPOSTE stems from ATTENTI AL BUFFONE whereas the second side offers stuff from SANS MOBILE APPARENT and from the TV series L'UOMO E LA MAGIA (a documentary), including the excellent track Volo solitario, that is the opening title of L'UOMO E LA MAGIA.

Morricone is my absolute favourite composer and I like Nicolai as well but listening to these samples I'm just scratching my head: do people really like this kind of music? For me it's basically just noise - with drums...


Morricone is my absolute favorite composer, but I have no use for scores like "The Mission" or "Days of Heaven."

I LIVE for stuff like this.

Morricone is vast, and he we all have different entry points into his music.

I like this music. And not only this music ... the focus/core of my music collection is upon the (approximately) 35-year-span starting in the late 1940s and lasting onwards until the early 1980s. My collection is half soundtracks and half 'classical' (contemporary classical, that is - not 1700s Classical period).

If one is into Xenakis or early Penderecki, then the 'new music group' in which Morricone (+ Egisto Macchi, et al.) partook should not be unfamilar territory. There have been a number of avant-garde Italians (such as Berio, Maderna, Nono, Donatoni, Bussotti, etc.) who particpated in the Darmstadt summers during the 1950s. Sample a little of Morricone's own concert works from '57 or '58 to further acquaint oneself with this compositional mindset.

I consider Morricone's unique contribution to be the (seemingly incongruous) juxtapositioning of jazz & rock rhythms into the free atonality of mid-20th century techniques. Sound sample # 10, as example, seems similar to Morricone's '71 giallo Cat o' Nine Tails.

Morricone's 'thriller' music plus these sort of library cues (also consider Ennio's Space: 1999 disc) might represent around only 15% of his overall output, but they are nonetheless facets of his musical personae that we fans either contend with or embrace.

Don't you guys ever feel like just letting your hair down and put on some ABBA or something?

Damian, as much as it makes me a lesser Morricone collector, a kind of sneered-at amateur, who isnt really a proper collector because i dont dig it, sorry, but im with you. Much of it drives me up the fkn wall.

Some of Ennio's atonal stuff within his film scores is fine, equally its very effective within the film itself - its primary purpose. But i admit it, his extreme atonal stuff gets me on edge and i never play it.

That's fine.

We should set up a Morricone trade thread in the trading post. You can trade me things that sound like like "Dimensioni Sonore" for albums that sound like "The Mission" or "Days of Heaven."

A pity this box is sold at such a hefty price since I don't have the previous release. Also, I wish they would have spread the whole stuff over 6 CD's as well.

Regarding OPPOSTE ESPERIENZE, I also hold it as a library music project. If it is a genuine soundtrack, can you tell us from which movie it is supposed to come from?


Perhaps this one:

C'mon, people. Let's not play this stupid game of justifying what one likes and what one does not. Or to be more precise: No one is a better or worse collector respectively Morricone admirer depending on whether you like this DIMENSIONI SONORE stuff or not.

I can manage a cd with one or two tracks that sound like this but not a full set. It would help though if it were called De Profundus or something of that I'll( it helps to paint the picture).

Think of it as an investment. You know how much this will be going for in a year or two?
