New Podcast: INTERRUPTIONS #17. Vietata la vendita. Sonorizzazioni e commenti sonori: library music made in Italy.

 

Curated by Raül G. Pratginestós

Italians have always had a unique way of mixing music and drama, a special sensibility that accounts for the dominant role of music in the history of Italian film to the extent that many of the most highly admired soundtrack composers (Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Piccioni and innumerable others) are Italian. It's no wonder then that Italy, which had its own major international film industry during the fifties and sixties, generated an enormous demand for music for films of the most diverse genres (from neo-realist or psychological dramas to spaghetti-westerns, peplum, gialli, spy movies, poliziotteschi, comedies and erotic films) and engendered a parallel music industry with composers from the most disparate fields (from jazz to 'serious' music). This prominent sub-industry was the backdrop to the fascinating and still relatively unknown world of library music 'Made in Italy'. A scene with very particular traits that is stirring up increasing interest in the strange parallel world of 'library music'.
