ENNIO MORRICONE RIP
10 November 1928 – 6 July 2020
Today we say goodbye to the brilliantly prolific, master of soundtracks, ENNIO MORRICONE, probably the most famous film composer of the 20th century.
He wrote the main theme to THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY, released in 1966 with a score composed by frequent Leone collaborator Ennio Morricone, whose distinctive original compositions containing gunfire, whistling, and yodeling permeated the film.
It is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most original film scores in history.
The main theme, resembling the howling of a coyote, was a two-note melody and motif, used for the three main characters, with a different instrument used for each one: flute for Blondie (Man with No Name), Arghilofono (Ocarina) for Angel Eyes, and human voices for Tuco.
