Philippe D'Aram - L'interieur des écuries (1979)

I have admit, for as much as I admire art-house horror cinema on the 70s, I've only seen a handful of films from French director Jean Rollin. I know. Shame on me. By today's standards I'd assume that the pacing of his movies would be considered stiff, or perhaps even boring, to modern audiences, but I've always admired a haunting atmosphere within his efforts, and from what I can recall the musical scores accompanying these works always contributed to the general suspense and weirdness of whatever might be proceeding onscreen, however hokey they might seem.

In other words: Great music.

Today's selection, taken from Philippe D'Aram's score for the 1979 film 'Fascination', has a wonderful ambient quality which channels a haunting, otherworldly essence. It's minimal in form but frightening in its simplicity. Excellent.
