Western Conventions - Sound

We loved the sound of the Spaghetti Westerns but think it will probably be quite hard for us to create something similiar especially as Ennio Morricone has created such a signature sound with the Spaghetti Westerns. There are lots of picolo, flute, guitar and banjo and there is lots of silence used too.  And, of course, whistling and gun shots during the stand offs too!

We listened to the theme tunes for the films below and they all had a flute 'motif' or some kind of whistling that was used as a cue for danger or a different character. We thought it would be good to try and re-create this.
