Go to the Bruno Maderna website  Bruno Maderna - Death Laid An Egg OST [Fin De Siècle Media - 2007]

This is a rather wonderful and bizarre soundtrack for rather bizarrely titled & by all accounts very odd giallo film from 1972. We go from discordant Spanish guitar music, to looped classical tones and modern classical elements, to creepy and clunking piano work and all manner of avant strangeness with strewn here and there more oddly beautiful moments too.

Quite what the people watching the film original back in the 70’s hearing all this demented, very strange and really very un-soundtrack like material over a film would have thought is mind boggling. This is truly one of the most bizarre, off kilter soundtracks I’ve ever heard- it’s really up there with some of the stranger Jess Franco soundtracks of the 70’s. Your either been attacked by sawing modern classical string work, or puzzled by discordant strummed Spanish guitar as a male singer rants in strange foreign tone- imagine if one of the early Resident voices stayed in Spain for a long hot summer and you might get this. or at other times your lost at strange seas bobbing along with weird tinkling and melting piano cords and violin. There are elements that appear offten, but never really tuneful or pleasant, there drunk, ill and very deformed as if a truly deranged mind decided to compose music from with in their padded room.

Kudos and the highest praise must go to Fin De Siècle for uncovering this odd and demented gem and as usual the present in a fine full colour 8 sided digi-pak with stills from the film, a write up about the move and info about the soundtrack composer.
