“I’m trying to interpret the film through the director’s head, but it all comes out through me. So, a composer is kind of like a psychic medium.” Danny Elfman, composer, film composer, music producer, Grammy Award

In this clip from http://www.artistshousemusic.org – Equally adept at computer generated music and classical orchestral elements, Paul Haslinger has established himself as a unique musical voice in the world of feature films. Classically trained in Salzburg and Vienna, he eschewed his classical roots to become a member of the pioneering electronic band, Tangerine Dream, in which he left his distinctive fingerprint on four highly successful albums and several films, including ‘Miracle Mile’, ‘Near Dark’ and ‘Canyon Dreams’, which earned him a Grammy nomination. Upon venturing out on his own, Haslinger had three critically acclaimed solo albums and scored two ground breaking animated science-fiction films, Planetary Traveler (1997) (V) and Infinity’s Child (1999) (V), for director Jan Nickman. He honed his film scoring skills for several years as the programmer for ‘Graeme Revell’ , providing the musical textures and atmospheres for such movies as Blow, The Negotiator (1998), The Siege (1998), Pitch Black (2000) and Tomb Raider, to name just a few.

In the summer of 1979, I was extremely fortunate to speak at length with Ennio Morricone at his home just outside Rome. My purpose was to record an interview for a National Public Radio program as well as obtaining credit toward my independent study in film at American University. The spirited conversation lasted over three hours and I was invited back a short time later to observe the Maestro producing a film score for Gillo Pontecorvo. The experience of meeting my musical hero and his gracious family remains one of the most cherished memories of my life. A few months passed and while still at school in Rome, I learned that the NPR program for which I had conducted this and other interviews was suddenly pulled off the air. However, the show was restructured and eventually returned to radio a year or so later. But my tapes, which remained unedited and unaired disappeared, apparently discarded or lost in the interim. Miraculously – after thirty years – the last half-hour of the Morricone interview was recently uncovered – albeit in delicate condition. Since I never had the opportunity to properly thank this most august and magnificent artist, I offer this unedited testament to his boundless energy and love of music, his fierce intelligence, his genuine warmth and generosity with my sincerest and lifelong gratitude. Though a cliche, “better late than never” truly applies here. This is the first 5-minutes of the surviving half an hour. The music layered underneath (the only alteration I made to the raw tape) is from his exquisite score to the film L’Umanoide, released just before our meeting. Vogliate gradire i miei ringraziamenti più profondi, caro Maestro. The rest of the “lost” interview can be heard at:
