Πριν τον Quentin Tarantino, υπήρχε ο Sam Peckinpah. Με την ευκαιρία της επετείου της γέννησης του κορυφαίου σκηνοθέτη [21/2/1925], ακούμε αποσπάσματα από soundtracks ταινιών του… ξεκινώντας με τη μουσική που έγραψε για την κλασική “Άγρια Συμμορία” ο συνθέτης που προτιμούσε ο Peckinpah, Jerry Fielding.

Before Quentin Tarantino, there was Sam Peckinpah. On the occasion of the great director’s anniversary [2/21/1925], we have some excerpts from his film soundtracks…starting with the one written for the classic “The Wild Bunch”, by his favorite composer, Jerry Fielding.

Μουσική, ξανά του Jerry Fielding, για το εκπληκτικό ψυχολογικό θρίλερ Straw Dogs με τον Dustin Hoffman και την Susan George. Μια από τις πρώτες ταινίες που προκάλεσαν μαζικές αντιδράσεις για την εξάπλωση της βίας στη βιομηχανία του Χόλιγουντ.

Music, again by Jerry Fielding, for the amazing psychological thriller Straw Dogs, starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George. One of the first films that provoked mass reactions, for the spread of violence in Hollywood industry.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
