As a teaser for the forthcoming Sound of Fear event at London's South Bank Centre on 3 September, The Guardian are running a piece I've written about the art of the horror movie soundtrack. You can read it here.
I'll also be providing intermission music for the two-day event, with selections drawn from my personal favourites. If you've ever fancied hearing Fabio Frizzi's score for City of the Living Dead or I Libra's prog-rock theme for Mario Bava's Shock wafting around the corridors of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, now's your chance!

This September the 3rd I will be joining the writer Kim Newman, and composer of the score for Friday the 13th, Harry Manfredini, on stage at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, for a panel discussion on the art of horror film soundtracks. I hope to see some of you there, it promises to be an entertaining discussion. Tickets are £12.50 (see website for concessions).

To give you an idea of a few of my personal favourites, here's a gallery of LP artwork (and yes, lots of them do come from the Seventies, don't they!):
