Ennio Morricone


A classmate of director Sergio Leone with whom he would form one of the great director/composer partnerships (right up there with Eisenstein & Prokofiev, Hitchcock & Herrmann, Fellini & Rota), Ennio Morricone studied at Rome’s Santa Cecilia Conservatory, where he specialized in trumpet. His first film scores were relatively undistinguished, but he was hired by Leone for För en handfull dollar (1964) on the strength of some of his song arrangements. His score for that film, with its sparse arrangements, unorthodox instrumentation (bells, electric guitars, harmonicas, the distinctive twang of the jew’s harp) and memorable tunes, revolutionized the way music would be used in Westerns, and it is hard to think of a post-Morricone Western score that doesn’t in some way reflect his influence. Although his name will always be synonymous with the spaghetti Western, Morricone has also contributed to a huge range of other film genres: comedies, dramas, thrillers, horror films, romances, art movies, exploitation movies – making him one of the film world’s most versatile artists. He has written nearly 400 film scores, so a brief summary is impossible, but his most memorable work includes the Leone films, Gillo Pontecorvo’s Slaget om Alger (1966) , Roland Joffé’s The Mission (1986), Brian De Palma’s De omutbara (1987) and Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso (1988), plus a rare example of sung opening credits for Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Stora stygga fåglar och små snälla (1966).

Det rör sig på alla plan


Småfolket från Mellanöstern blir alltmer frekventa i utemiljöerna. Sommaren är här.

Måsar skrattar. Kajor flyr. Och lärkan slår inte rundslag i skyn, än.

Projektet balkong tar liksom aldrig slut. Det går över i en annan fas. Sommarmöglets. Luftföroreningar av diverse slag blöts ner, knyts till ytor och bildar mönster. Kan det vara svampsporer som sprids med vinden. Vinden viskar mitt namn igen. Fåglarna i himmelen sjunga.

Låtar, sånger, dyker upp som svalorna i skyn.

Gräsmattan vid fotbollsmålen mellan husen växer upp efter att ha grävts upp för underhållsarbete med vatten, avlopp och fiberkabelutbygge.

Killar lirar boll.

Tjejer kastar boll

Naturen vill. Vi vill. Jag vill

Många med mej önskar ett slut på ’Coronan’
