Today’s feature is lifted from Franco Micalizzi’s score to the 1979 sci-fi/horror Italian film ‘The Visitor’. It’s a haunting piece from Micalizzi, who was otherwise known for his Euro funk soundtracks to Poliziotteschi films. I haven’t seen ‘The Visitor’, and the movie reviews seem generally harsh, but nonetheless I’d be curious to see how this music might’ve accompanied a movie of this particular genre.
The entire album is excellent, exploring this same quirky vibe with touches of jazz and disco. Recommended.
