The latest instalment of Audiodrome: Music in Film is now up over at Paracinema.net. This month I check out Carlo Rustichelli’s rather swanky and often spooky score for Mario Bava’s ravishing giallo blueprint, Blood & Black Lace (1964); AKA Sei donne per l'assassino (6 Women for the Murderer). Infused with the sultry rhythms of the tango, Rustichelli’s music highlights the more sensual aspects of Bava’s lurid film about a sadistic killer preying upon the models of an elite fashion house.
Skip on over to Paracinema to read it and listen to a track, and let’s chat about Rustichelli, Bava and giallo soundtracks!
