Exciting news today as LG officially announce that they have partnered with legendary movie composer Ennio Morricone to provide ringtones for LG’s new smartphones.

Morricone is one of the best-known composers in the movie industry having worked on such classics as The Untouchables, Once Upon a Time in America and the Dollars Trilogy, amongst a CV of over 500 film and TV scores in a truly illustrious career.

The first phone to see the exclusive Morricone compositions will be the dual-core Optimus 2X – the world’s first dual-core phone. To ensure that beautiful music is paired with a suitable impressive platform, LG engineers have been hard at work perfecting the audio performance on its latest phones, with Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company saying “Reproducing his work with such amazing clarity on the Optimus 2X, gives smartphones a whole new level of respect as the primary device for on-the-go music.”

Included amongst the 25 compositions will be 15 exclusive new tracks alongside 10 of Morricone’s best-known compositions, including music from Cinema Paradiso, The Mission and Love Affair. In addition to these ringtones, there are plans to develop a range of apps with Morricone-related content such as images and video clips encapsulating his work, all of which will be available for free download from the LG Application Store starting next year.
