However, what really helped Morricone rise to fame were the sound effects he blended with music in Sergio Leone\u2019s spaghetti westerns of the 1960s. These sound effects included a ticking pocket watch, a sign creaking in the wind, buzzing flies, a twanging Jew\u2019s harp, haunting whistles, cracking whips, gunshots, and more. These sounds all come from an instrument by the name of the Ocarina.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMr. Morricone was an undisputed talent with a gift for music. May he rest in peace.
