The London Roots Festival will host an audiovisual concert dedicated to the music of Ennio Morricone, a unique event born from the collaboration between Calibro 35 and the video artists at Studio Cliché, and the Italian Cultural Insitute.

In an era where the boundaries between the arts merge and blur, the Ennio Morricone Audiovisual Concert offers an unprecedented exploration of Ennio Morricone's artistry, drawing inspiration from Abel Gance's vision of cinema as a means to "listen through the eyes."

This ambitious and novel journey pairs some of the most famous film scores by the celebrated Roman composer with images from the films they were composed for, creating a true symphonic and visual dialogue. It is an artistically valuable moment that the Italian Cultural Institute is pleased to produce in its path of innovation tightly linked with the preservation of memory.

Calibro 35 has celebrated Ennio Morricone's music with their album Scacco al Maestro, divided into two volumes. The first includes "Arena" featuring Matt Bellamy and "Once Upon a Time in the West" with Diodato. The second volume features collaborations with artists such as Joan As Police Woman, Elisa, and Alessandro Cortini. The group has resonated Morricone's music by approaching it from a unique perspective, consisting of innovative arrangements and a modern interpretation of the Maestro's work. This reinterpretation not only pays tribute but also brings the influence of the great composer's production into the contemporary era and to new audiences. The Scacco al Maestro project recognizes the musical genius of Morricone as well as Calibro 35's impact in reinterpreting his work in a modern context. A vibrant tribute to Ennio Morricone that continues to live through live performances like the one presented at the Roots Festival on October 29, 2024, at Union Chapel in London, augmented by a video installation by Studio Cliché that enriches the audience's experience with images and sounds from the films in a unique and unprecedented production.

The event will unfold through a live performance where music and visual art intertwine in an audiovisual narrative. Film frames and cinematic dialogues are transformed into performative tools, played and orchestrated in real-time by Calibro 35 and Studio Cliché. This audiovisual concert presents a journey through the emotions, stories, and settings of the films that have made cinema history, enriched by Morricone's unforgettable compositions.

The event not only celebrates the work of a Maestro but also serves as a cultural experiment, pushing the boundaries of the spectator experience and artistic expression. Through advanced technology, the Ennio Morricone Audiovisual Concert offers a new way to experience culture and art, paying homage to Morricone in a way that reaffirms and transforms his impact in the contemporary context. A proposal to promote Italian culture through an artistic figure now classic in the history of cinema and film music, which in this event produced with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in London, comes to life in a contemporary form, through a video design that accompanies the entire live show of Calibro 35 at Union Chapel.
