The famous Morricone style
They were friends since school: Morricone and the famous film director Sergio Leone. In 1964 they both started the well-known and successful collaboration. Above all, this includes the film classics: for a handful of dollars, two glorious villains and play me the song of death. Morricone's compositions were new and innovative and had an unusual sound element (jaw harps, whistles, screams, howling coyotes, owl calls, bells, music boxes, whip bangs, blows on the anvil etc.) Some of his compositions even found their way into the pop charts!
