By 1987, Simon Boswell had already contributed fantastic music and songs to Dario Argento’s ‘Phe- nomena’ and scored all of Lamberto Bava’s ‘Demoni II’. When it came to hiring a composer for ‘Stage Fright’, Simon came highly recommended and was my first choice.

‘Stage Fright’ (aka ‘Aquarius’, ‘Deliria’ and ‘Bloody Bird’), was my first feature-length movie and has always held a special place in my heart.
When I heard the ‘Stage Fright’ music I realised that Simon had matched my vision with something unique and fresh, combining his expertise in programming and playing synthesisers and samplers with his skills as a great guitarist.

I love the way his classical roots rub shoulders with the distinctive ‘thrashy’ sound of 70’s English punk music, dreamy synth landscapes and the programmed rhythms of the indie dance music that he produced so much of in the 80’s.

Altogether, this enabled him to compose a score that was very contemporary, hypnotic, scary and, when needed, both beautiful and aggressive.

Here it is, for the first time on vinyl since 1987. Enjoy it! – Michele Soavi, August 2014
