La domenica del diavolo (Italy) (DVD title)
We are pleased to release for the absolute first time on CD, the OST by Stelvio Cipriani for the drama film "Midnight Blue" (aka "La Domenica Del Diavolo").
Stelvio Cipriani composed an uplifting score (the film takes place on a Sunday in summer) with a recurring dance-flavored theme with the fantastic voice of Edda Dell'Orso. The score describes the freshness and light-heartedness of three very young friends during a relaxing day at the beach. Unfortunately destiny has something in store for them. They meet three seemingly mild mannered men who are actually criminals who've escaped from prison. For them Cipriani creates hard and rhythmic sounds performed by a moog synthesizer to create anticipation during pursuits to the death. For our CD we've used all the music recorded in stereo, well-preserved to this day on the original master tapes.
