Italian Surf Academy

The American Dream: an audio-visual journey into the movie culture of 1960s Italy

A very special multi-media performance by the Italian Surf Academy, who will present The American Dream: an audio-visual journey into the movie culture of 1960s Italy! Featuring music from Spaghetti western, noir and crime movies originally composed by Ennio Morricone, Luis Bacalov, Carlo Rustichelli, Riz Ortolani, Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, and more. “A fascinating exploration of engaging music” – The Wall Street Journal "Take one Italian guitarist active in the Downtown Improvisation and New Music scene - combine with youthful influences of movie music and Spaghetti Westerns - mix well with a love of '60s Surf Sound (think The Ventures, Beach Boys, etc.) bathed in reverb - anchor with a solid rhythm section of bass and drums.. and you get the Italian Surf Academy! Certainly the baddest bad Morricone you've ever heard - as well as themes from other '60s Italian soundtrack stalwarts such as Piero Umiliani, Riz Ortolani, Carlo Rustichelli, Armando Trovajoli, and Luis Enriquez Bacalov!...."
