STRIDULUM (CD)
Composed by: Franco Micalizzi

Digitmovies is proud to release on CD the complete OST in full stereo by Franco Micalizzi from the film “Stridulum” (Aka “The Visitor”) directed in 1979 by Giulio Paradisi and starring Mel Ferrer, Glenn Ford, John Huston, Franco Nero, Shelley Winters, Sam Peckinpah, Joanne Nail, Lance Henriksen, Paige Conner, Ja Townsend, Jack Dorsey, Hsio Ho Chao. Jersey (Huston) arrives on the earth from outer space with the mission of defending an evil syndicate under the guide of doctor Walker (Ferrer) which is based in the city of Los Angeles. By manipualting Barbara Collins (Nail), the evil doctor Walker generated a little girl with paranormal powers named Katy ( Conner) and he wants to use her for the triumph of evil. But as a male child is also needed, Raymond (Henriksen) is assigned to persuade Barbara to make her pregnant again. The woman, unaware of all this, is still worried about the strange behaviour of her daughter and she is not inclined to accept Raymond’s attentions. Franco Micalizzi has written one of the most beautiful scores of his entire career (and one of the favourites of the composer himself), where a main theme quoting “Also sprach Zarathustra” in the introduction then develops into a powerful and driving funky music piece that recalls so many famous police movie themes of this author (Tr.1,3,8,13,15,18,20), alternated with a romantic love theme (Tr.2,Tr.4,Tr.7,Tr.9,Tr.17) , action music (Tr.6,Tr.11) and dissonant symphonic-electronic atmospheres (Tr.5, Tr.10,Tr.14,Tr.16,Tr.19). For our CD (supervised by M° Micalizzi) we were able to use the stereo master tape assembled for the original 33 rpm album (RCA BL 31433) and those stereo master tapes of the original New York session which gave us the chance to add about twenty minutes of unreleased music. A proper rescue and preservation of the Italian Silver Age and of the music art of Franco Micalizzi.
