Ennio Morricone makes exclusive collection of music and ringtones for LG smartphones
LG today announced the release of an exclusive collection of music and ringtones written by movie soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone. The first such collaboration of its kinds, both newly composed pieces as well as a selection from Morricone’s legendary oeuvre, including Cinema Paradiso, The Mission and Love Affair, will be included in the collection. The exclusive music will be preloaded on LG smartphones starting with the LG Optimus 2X set to debut next month in Europe. LG smartphone users will be able to enjoy a total of 25 of Morricone’s creations — 15 ringtones composed specifically for LG and 10 of his best-known tunes from the world of cinema.
Born in Italy, Morricone is one of the most prolific and influential film composers in the world. He has composed and arranged scores for more than 500 films and TV programs over his illustrious career. In addition to the collection of 25 ringtones and music, LG plans to develop a range of apps with Morricone-related content such as images and video clips for free downloading from the LG Application Store (www.lgapplication.com) starting next year.
