UWA Music presents: Free Lunchtime Concert | UWA Composition : The Morricone Project Other events...
Be transported from the everyday by our free lunchtime concert series, featuring the best musical talent from within the UWA Conservatorium of Music and around the country.

Ennio Morricone, (b.1928) is an Italian composer, who is most well-known for his film work, and in particular the genre known as ‘spaghetti western’. Working with director Sergio Leone, he scored The Good the Bad and the Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More. He also wrote the music for Once Upon a time in America The Mission and The Hateful Eight.

The music from the spaghetti western period (the 1960s) demonstrates Morricone’s quirky orchestrations. Budget restrictions meant limited access to a full orchestra. Morricone turned to unconventional instruments (jew’s harp, whistling, electric guitar and cracking whips) to create strange sonic landscapes.

The Morricone Project gives our composition students the opportunity to re-imagine these works for a new ensemble and to collaborate with the musicians in the ensemble. The re-imaginations can included setting Morricone’s music against their own, changing the instrumentation, and/or focusing on one particular motive and exploring its possibilities.

The composers are:

Victor Arul – For a Few Dollars More

Oliver Broun – The Mission

Remal Festini – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Lydia Gardiner – The Man with the Harmonica

Free entry, no bookings required.
