Extasy Morricone is a trip.
A journey around modernity through rediscovery of true gems produced by the pen of remarkable Italian film composer Ennio Morricone.
Ennio Morricone created music for over 500 films, but as he says ‘only 30 of them were Westerns’. With Extasy Morricone we want to celebrate the more psychedelic, progressive, adventurous side of this Italian composer. Over the years he wrote a number of songs that bring attention to one of his greatest signatures: the wordless vocals, anchoring his subtle, rich arrangements.
The great talent of the Italian singer Ilaria Crociani and a fistful of incredibly multifaceted musicians will take you by the hand into the mesmerising sonic world of one of the geniuses of our times.
The show provides full testimony to Morricone’s eclecticism, in which we find sounds that were so diverse and so advanced that make him one of the greatest music innovators of the twentieth century.
Morricone, turning 90 this year, was able to conceive commercial music without renouncing to experimentalism and contemporary composition techniques. His use of unconventional instrumentation (harpsichord, percussions, bells, metallophones) alongside an unrelenting determination in chasing a unique sound for each one of his composition, is what we would like to showcase with this brand new project.
