Ennio Morricone – The Western Score Scientist

Soaring whistles, twangy guitars, and horns are staples in any Spaghetti Western film’s score archive. Ennio Morricone is the man that started a wave of new sounds through his long list of over 500 titles to his name. With major films such as Fistful Of Dollars, Once Upon A Time In The West, The Good The Bad And The Ugly, and nearly any other you can name was his or refrenced by another composer. He’s worked on a number of films recently, but not to the same degree as his western titles. If you’ve recently seen Tarantino’s, Inglorious Basterds, you may have noticed some of Morricone’s work.

    I think he also did ‘The Mission’ with Jeremy Irons and Robert DeNiro. Incredible score.

    Yes, the Mission is Ennio. Completely different from his usual work but fantastic nonetheless.
