MATTEO CASTELLANO ezio

I had the pleasure to meet Matteo in his home (Villa Ormea Torino)around September 2010,collateral to a grateful cosmic summer’s event(Agnese‘s meet).I loved the moment I loved the man,he’s emphatic, greater than life,he is the temerarious of the sincerity. He is a singer songwriter,a sort of Fred Buscaglione meets Giorgio Conte & since first minutes I have detect some emotional instability in to him as par as the nitroglycerin but due this clue I have undersatand how great he is and from where his songs coming from.I never ask him many things,just played cards with him,had dinner with him ,wished merry xmas,slept over in his house,photographed him and follow his concerts and I felt since first time he singing(speak) from experience and that’s  for me is a wonderful journey.So,speaking of journey ,  I love his extraordinary first Album EZIO, with an amazing smart cover,produced by K-Brothers Collective after 5 years of important things and meets,the credits included some great collaboration as genius Mr. Hairi Vogel(synth,electic guitar,Super Collider,noise),MaX Laredo(double-bass),Giuseppe Pepperino Leone(drums-guitar mandolin),Sol Ruiz-Gaia Mobilj-Carlos Cid Condoritos(choirs),Fabrizio Bozzi Fenu(additional electric guitar),Frankie Partipilo(drums,tenor sax),Cora e Maya Pennachietti(additional orchestra).My favourite tracks are Boccuccia,Un po per i tuoi occhi ,Grigio and Così ,each time I listen these songs I’m envisioning him walking to me speaking,smiling and kidding and that’s cool.Enjoy his music, highly recommended!

Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.’s THE THING

 

Directed by dutch director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. ,he was @ 1996 TORINO FILM FESTIVAL  With “Red Rain”,a sort of Psyco but he’s also very fond of Commercials: 2011 Universal’s THE THING is starring  Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Ulrich Thomsen and many more others butchered;that Movieis the prequel of 1982 John Carpenter’s The Thing (i’m a great supporter of this one)and  the story tell us what the hell is happened into Norge/Sweden(Mac Ready docet)base and crew before US crew @  Outpost 31 was reach by that fucking alienated Husky.So,I will see this flick probably on December,due great commercial strategy of Universal Italia,but in the most part of the planet Earth people will be assimilated on 14 October. For what I see & feel is a great modern effort,shot on anamorphic format by french cinematographer Michel Abramowicz ,this format just for pay tribute to the outstanding DEAN CUNDEY ASC/CSC and John Carpenter’s look,but in comparison to its precursor LA COSA ,this last one has upgraded praticals ( by Amalgamated Adam Edvard creature Nominated @10th Ves Awards for Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture)and add great Cgi effects and that permit to convey what probably John Carpenter & Rob Bottin had just imagined in 1982 and transformed in to paranoia or fast,cool editing efforts,so I ‘m pretty excited about that.The electronic / orchestral soundtrack goes to Marco Beltrami,friend of Ennio Morricone & pay homage to him,that’s not enough,the original score,with the greats ones Despair , Solitude and Humanity Part II were used just in parts by Carpenter(he adds some great additional compositions),Carpenter was the master of analog synths for his works and one of great horror key of the  first movie was the electronic incidental score…But I will able to say more later

This soundtrack is quite impressive,modern and original and fit perfect for the use that the Director does in this underrated gem.
