Coinciding with Profondo Rosso’s 40th anniversary, Goblin will be playing their original score live to a screening of the film in a UK for the first time.
Goblin’s scores, once heard are never quite forgotten. Profondo Rosso is no exception, characterised by its synth heavy sound and chilling central theme. Along with Suspiria, Profondo Rosso is perhaps Argento’s most celebrated film and a total classic of the giallo horror subgenre and in its own right.
Originally inspired by bands like King Crimson and prog-era Genesis, Goblin’s unique sound is instantly recognisable and has earned them a cult status all of their own.
Having been dissatisfied with the original soundtrack Argento called local band Cherry Five in at short notice. They renamed themselves Goblin, and, legend has it wrote the new soundtrack in one night.
Goblin will be live scoring Profondo Rosso on Saturday 21st February 2015 at Barbican Hall, London. The screening is open to ages 18+.
Tickets cost between £20–105 plus booking fee and can be booked online.
