63 Film Soundtracks Chosen by Kreng

As part of a Q&A I'm conducting with Pepijn Caudron (Kreng) I asked him to name his Top 5 film soundtracks. Understandably, he found that impossible, saying 'I can't do this'. Instead, he offered 63 from what I suspect would be a much larger list. He also added: 'and there is so much great Ennio Morricone. Too much to list here. check his wild 70's period on 'Crime & Dissonance' - a great double-compilation on Mike Patton's Ipecac label!'. I wholeheartedly support that recommendation; it's a good way of cheating if the list is short and like him I'm a big fan of Ennio's 70s work

The full Q&A session will be posted soon, along with a review of the forthcoming box set on Miasmah, Works For Abattoir Ferme 2007-2011 which, trust me, is an absolutely essential purchase.
