Ennio Morricone: Crime and Dissonance (Ipecac, 2005)

This monumental 2-CD compilation was drawn up by metal buffoon and Morricone fanatic Mike Patton as a way to rediscover the most experimental episodes of Morricone's career as a film music composer. The tracks included are not in the vein of Morricone's most melodic and renown work: the selection's mainly devoted to ill-sounding, disturbing pieces, tension-tinged hustles or chaotic murder scenes from half-forgotten Italian B-movies. Dissonance, unusual instrumental techniques and the radical avantgarde leanings of Morricone's Gruppo di improvvisazione nuova consonanza merge with classical music, electric jazz and experimental rock elements to create a kaleidoscopic range of tones which still today preserve both their original charm and innovative charge.

Liner notes are available on the Ipecac Records website.
