We played live the music I wrote for impressive film Maciste (1915) , thanks to the support of Museo Nazionale del Cinema di Torino. Here on the official Vimeo channel of the Museo, you can find the whole film with music (and credits). Here some pics of the rehearsal/live playing. Recording on its way!
With an incredible quartet made up of Federico Marchesano and Stefano Risso (double basses), Dario Bruna (drums) and Enrico Degani (guitars), plus Carlo Barbagallo as a producer, we sonorized at Mole Antonelliana in Torino, as a collaboration with Museo Nazionale del Cinema, Il jockey della morte, a silent film from 1915. Lots of fun composing the music and playing in such a location. Pics here.
I’ve been invited to speak about Michael Nyman’s music in relation to Peter Greenaway’ films at the OGR-Officine Grandi Riparazioni, Torino. Here the announcement. I will intervene in duo with Domenico De Gaetano.
On Oct 28th 2010 I should be ubiquitous as I will present also a communication dedicated to audible domain in the Universal horror talkies at the Sound and Image conference in Turin, this year dedicated to “sound and genre“. Luckily, the first author is Luca Canova, and he will present our work.
I’m presenting an analysis of Bergman’s The Hour of the Wolf at the conference dedicated to Bergman here at Uni TO. That flm is an impressive achievement: I’ll try to show how much also from a sonic “point of hear”
Having written a (little) book on the subject, I’ve been asked by the Ultracorpi collective to present Coppola’s The Conversation. One of the best film ever produced. At Cinema Massimo, Museo Nazionale del Cinema, Torino, Friday February 19, 8.30 pm. Thanks Ultracorpi! It will be a pleasure to see TC on screen.
