Goblin is great and John Carpenter rocks, but any conversation about the greatest horror soundtracks of all time has to include Fabio Frizzi, the Italian composer best known for his many collaborations with director Lucio Fulci. Frizzi has been enjoying a renaissance in the past couple of years, touring with his eight-piece orchestra performing the score of Fulci’s The Beyond along with selections from his other notable film work—like the theme from The Psychic, a.k.a. Seven Notes In Black, which was used in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, Vol. 1.
This Halloween, Frizzi is preparing to bring his orchestra to Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg for his New York City debut. This Sunday, October 29, Frizzi and crew will be performing Frizzi’s “Composer’s Cut” of The Beyond score, accompanied by an uncut print of this goopy, gory fever dream of a film. Then on Monday, October 30, the band will re-convene for a selection of themes from Fulci’s filmography, including the appropriately lumbering theme from Zombi 2—which is not actually a sequel; George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead was called Zombi in Italy, and Fucli’s producers wanted to cash in on its success. Thus, Zombi 2—and the aforementioned Seven Notes In Black.
Ship to Shore Records will also be offering a special, limited-edition 7" featuring the themes from Zombi 2 and The Beyond only at the Music Hall of Williamsburg shows. You can exclusively hear both tracks, as well as check out the teal “Zombie Vs. Shark” and tie-dyed “Morgue Acid Bath” variant colors, below.
