Fabio Frizzi

About Fabio Frizzi

Composer Fabio Frizzi is best known for his eerie scores for European horror movies. A frequent collaborator with Italian horror icon Lucio Fulci from the '70s into the '90s on films such as Contraband, The Beyond, and A Cat in the Brain, his music often used analog synthesizers, with their fuzzy sound adding a layer of creepiness to his downbeat melodies. Still incorporating elements of electronic, classical, and rock music into his scores with help from vintage instruments, Frizzi went on to compose music for projects including TV's Il Capitano (2005), House of Forbidden Secrets (2013), and Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018). ~ Marcy Donelson
