won the 11th International Prize of Humour
Italian composer Ennio Morricone won the 11th International Prize of Humour, (Alias Bouzghiba-Awards). He succeeds to French cartoonist Plantu, the last winner 2014.
As a phenomenon who has a few eguals in the world of movi-music, prolific Ennio Morricone has written music for more than 500 motion pictures and television series. He whould be nominated in the Guinness-Book for this incredible performance.
Ennio Morricone was born in 1928 in Rome (Italy). He studied music in Santa Cecilia Academy. He formed with his schoole mate Sergio Leone a beautiful tandem. Besides his renowned collaboration with this famous movi-maker, he worked frequently with several other directors such as Bertolucci, Pasolini, Giuseppe Tornatore, Henri Verneuil, George Lautner, Terence Malick, Roman Polanski, Don Siegel, John Carpenter, Brian De Palma, Oliver Stone, Quentin Tarantino …
Ennio Morricone added to his symphonic and classical orchestration a lot of familiar sounds sweetly arranged to the narrative structure of the film (wheezing, bell sounds, mouth shaver, harmonica, metronome‘s tic-tac, telegraph’s bip-bip, banjo, ...). We can not imagine some western sequences without their acoustic accompaniment. During his career he produced over 500 songs for a lot of singers such as Paul Anka and Mireille Mathieu. Who does not remember ''Here's to you'' sung by the great diva Joan Baez for '' Sacco and Vanzetti ''?
The 11th B-Awards is given to Mastro Ennio Morricone for his incredible performances. The humorous side shines through this delicious anti-conventional use.
