HOW TO SCORE A WESTERN (Part 1)

Spaghetti Western, also known as Italian Western or Macaroni Western,  is a broad subgenre of Western films that emerged in the mid-1960s in the wake of Sergio Leone’s film-making style and international box-office success. Ennio Morricone was undoubtedly the composer that create major part of western music clichés (which have influenced all film music).

Today i’m glad to show you a score i did for the film 10 Miles to bisbee, where we can found a lot of Morricone idiomatic devices.

HORROR DEVICE

Here is a quick little epic horror device, which I probably heard in Jerry Goldsmith’s “The Omen”. It’s short fragment of a composition of mine called “Book of Leviathan”. It’s very effective in conjuring up a sense of extreme horror and invocation.

SOME DEBUSSY DEVICES

Today i’m going to show some interesting devices extracted from a composition i did when i was studying orchestration. Despite the mockup was not quite good, its interest is high because combines typical Claude Debussy’s instrumentation with daring impressionistic harmonies. Debussy’s music has proven to be very influential, and its use of sensuous tonal colours and its orchestration methods have influenced many film scores.
