Autostop Rosso Sangue - M23  performed by  Ennio Morricone  (1977)
Composed by Ennio Morricone
From: Italy
Recommended by bobbyspacetroup [profile] on Wednesday 27th November 2002

The score for Pasquale Festa Campanileís mean but effective film "Autostop Rosso Sangue (Hitch Hike)" seems to be a precursor to the score for Oliver Stoneís mean and ineffective "U-Turn." On second thought, not just the score but the entire film. I wonder if Stone had seen this movie before making "U-Turn." At any rate, Iím here to talk about the music, and both films feature absolutely incredible scores by Morricone.

The arrangement here is pretty spare Ė Iím pretty sure that this track is mostly improvised -- and plays like a toned down spaghetti western theme. Morricone can evoke more feeling from a small group of musicians than most film composers could from an entire orchestra. The twangy banjo sounds great over the plodding bass line, and I love the subtle organ sounds. Ultimately, the real star here is Edda Dell'orso whose wordless vocals meander over it all.
