We are pleased to release for the absolute first time on CD the OST by Stelvio Cipriani from the film "Target" (original title "Bersaglio altezza uomo").
Stelvio Cipriani has composed of hundreds of soundtracks for cinema and crime dramas (Poliziesco). For this Italian - Turkish co-production, Cipriani wrote an effective OST that we were able to fully assemble (total time 45:40 minutes) thanks to the stereo master tapes from the original recording session (except for a repertory dance piece that is heard a couple of times in the film). The author composed a main score with sounds typical of crime dramas, with a steady funk on guitar and synthesizer accompanied by drums. This recurring motif is alternated with a sweet and nostalgic love theme, pieces with an Arab ambience, and pieces for the suspense and action scenes.
