The Omega Productions Records is proud to present you for the first time on vinyl the the music from the movies The Black Countess (1975) and Shivers on the Skin (1973), composed by Daniel J. White. This vinyl edition contains all the music composed for the two films, an insert with liner notes by Alain Petit and Lucas Giorgini, as well as three photographs, reproduced on 250gr paper, in 10x14cm format.
Released in Paris on May 7th, 1975, Female Vampire is one of the most iconic films of director Jess Franco. Stakhanovist Daniel J. White, who became popular in 1965 with the score of the Belle and Sébastien series, composed the soundtrack of this Eurociné production at the age of 59. At a time when sound experimentation is in the spotlight among many musicians for the pictures, Daniel J. White takes the opposite to offer two scores mixing a classic compositional obsolete with, however, many atonal and jazzy influences. He composed for Female Vampire one of his most famous themes and repeated many times in innumerable productions stamped Eurociné (Zombie Lake, Oasis of the Living Dead). With strong Italian influences (like Bruno Nicolai, also a favorite composer of Jess Franco), the Tender and Perverse Emmanuelle soundtrack is the straightforward stylistic continuity of Female Vampire, offering unparalleled melancholy lyricism. From the great Daniel J. White: an inevitable classic Italian thriller lovers.
We offer you in conclusion, an unpublished suite formed of the musician’s session falls during the recording of these two original tapes. Coming from a close collaboration between Claudie White, Eurociné and The Omega Productions Records, this vinyl edition contains:
