The legendary Italian masters of the Horror Movie Soundtrack are best known for their collaborations with directors such as George A. Romero and Dario Argento, as well as their seminal album ‘Roller’.
Goblin have scored a vast number of genre cult classics including Suspiria, Patrick, The Church, Deep Red, Tenebrae and Dawn of the Dead. Their synth-heavy prog rock regularly veers into nightmarish and atmospheric territory, making them a truly original and iconic entity.
Morricone Youth is a New York City septet formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music. In addition to a repertoire of over 100 re-workings of old soundtracks, many of which recorded for various EPs released by Country Club Records, the band composes original music much in the same vein for the “imaginary film” as well as for live settings to accompany silent films, midnight movies, animations and shorts. Morricone Youth recorded its debut full length album of original music entitled “Silenzio Violento” with legendary Brooklyn producer/engineer Martin Bisi released by Country Club Records in 2005. The band’s music has regularly been used for television and films, most recently in the documentary “Second Skin” directed by Juan Carlos Pineiro-Escoriaza about MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games).
Guitarist/founder Devon E. Levins, formerly of San Diego’s avant-garde jazz punk band Creedle, has been a dedicated soundtrack record collector since the 80’s and has hosted a weekly internet radio show since 2007 on East Village Radio under the same Morricone Youth name curating primarily obscure music written for the moving image and interviewing soundtrack composers and filmmakers.
