« My experience with the cinema began when I was very young, in 1973. At the time, I was very active as a studio musician: I played a lot with Morricone. I was the pianist in Cinéma Paradiso and in some of the films of Sergio Leone such as Une fois l’Amérique. It was an incredible experience for me… I also played many soundtracks and I wrote a few for Italian comedies. I don’t know if visual emotion can be translated into sound but the link seems to me to be the story, a sound theme that we develop and which evokes the atmosphere of the film. It’s a sort of magic that we try to communicate in the music. »
