Just Checked In
Hey there, this made me think of you guys (even as I should be speed-writing my thesis) because you were the ones that finally made me watch The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. I knew him well before that obviously, and I don't know how appropriate this thread-hijacking is, but iirc mizal was also quite fond of his music. I might hop back in once I'm graduated btw, we'll see.
He was 91 and his career was over, so I hope he was satisfied with what he had accomplished and with what his works still accomplish.
Here's a nice documentary from 1995:
"Morricone told me that there [in The Mission] he saw enacted something that he'd always believed, that music could be a source of salvation."
"What's important to me is the quality; what I hope people will remember about my music is a certain quality, even when the music had to be simple I always tried to make it recognizable."
