Acqua E Sapone
Availability: 1 in stock
The original motion picture soundtrack of Carlo Verdone’s 1983 movie ‘Acqua E Sapone,’ composed by Maestro Fabio Liberatori, the artist who collaborated the most with the Roman director. Inspired by the electronic and sometimes dreamy sound of bands and artists like Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Popol Vuh, Tangerine Dream, Peter Gabriel, and Brian Eno; Liberatori makes large use of the PPG, a German synthesizer that produced delicate, crystalline, ethereal sounds that Carlo Verdone liked to call “campanellini” (“little bells”). This sound is present in most of the soundtrack and serves to emphasize the purity and naivety of the very young protagonist. The composer was also inspired by the Italian disco scene (Gazebo, Gary Low, Savage, Dan Harrow), specifically by the Linn Drum, an electronic drum machine that replaced the acoustic one, making the rhythm tremendously colder and robotic: Liberatori was attracted to this sort of “dehumanization” which – in the end – was nothing more than a coherent music revolution.
