Digitmovies is pleased to release, for the first time on CD, the OST by Stelvio Cipriani for the drama "Edipeon".
Stelvio Cipriani directed and composed a passionate lounge style OST, which reflected the beatnik environment of some historical figures of the time. Cipriani wrote a depressing main score in Baroque style interpreted by the magnificent voice of Edda Dell'Orso, who is absolutely key in this OST. Psychedelic and mysterious passages are alternated with enjoyable motifs like shake and bossa-nova.
To make this CD (51:20), we were able to access the mono master tapes from the original recording session and we included every note recorded at that time.
