Legendary Composer Fabio Frizzi to Score Mark Steensland's The Weeping Woman
It's been a long time since we heard any horror themed music from composer Fabio Frizzi, but that's about to change thanks to his participation in Mark Steensland's new short The Weeping Woman.
From the Press Release:
Legendary composer Fabio Frizzi (The Beyond, City of the Living Dead, Zombie) has signed on to score award-winning director Mark Steensland’s latest short film, The Weeping Woman.
The film, now in post-production for a May premiere, stars Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night, 976-Evil) and is based on a short story by acclaimed British horror author Paul Kane (The Hellraiser Films and Their Legacy).
“Working with Fabio Frizzi is a dream come true,” Steensland said. “I’ve always thought his music was the best thing about [director Lucio] Fulci’s movies, and I knew his style would be a perfect match for this film.”
Frizzi, who has only scored one short film before, agreed to compose the music for The Weeping Woman after reading the script and watching several of Steensland’s previous short films, including Peekers and The Ugly File.
Frizzi’s fans will be excited by this new music from the master. “I wrote this theme just trying to go back to my old Fulci/horror experience,” Frizzi said. “It's something simple, but I think quite hypnotic.”
“I have used Fabio’s music as temp scores to cut my films for years,” said Steensland. “I just never imagined that I would actually get him to really score one of them.”
Viewers will be able to hear the results for themselves when the film heads to the festival circuit later this year.
