Serie, colonne sonore e racconti noir, così si può riassumere il nuovo album di Floraleda Sacchi e Damiano Grandesso.

Series Noir raccoglie colonne sonore di popolari serie cinematografiche, TV e web realizzate con arrangiamenti originali degli interpreti e un uso sapiente dell’elettronica che colora quest’album di sfumature avvincenti.

L’album si apre con due brani di Hans Zimmer: un’aggressiva e sferragliante versione del tema Dark Knight (Batman) e il solenne brano Chevaliers de Sangreal che contraddistingue il film Codice Da Vinci e sequel. 

In alcune tracce sono i respiri nel sax o i rumori della meccanica dello strumento a dettare suoni che ricordano il mare (The Danish Girl di Alexandre Desplat) o creano una base ritmica (Dexter di Daniel Licht). 

L’arpa è spesso suonata con carta o metallo tra le corde o lasciata in purezza come negli intensi brani di Max Richter (temi di Black Mirror, The Leftovers, Shutter Island). Lo strofinare sulle corde o sulla tavola armonica crea i tappeti su cui si dispiegano temi famosi come The Rains of Castamere da Game of Thrones di Ramin Djawadi. 

Per la struggente London Calling di Micheal Gioacchino (Star Trek – Into Darkness) il sax si trasforma in un inquietante ronzio di fondo, mentre l’arpa si trasforma in un irreale clavicembalo che disegna tocchi di luce nel neo-barocco Vocalise di Wojciech Kilar.

Sebbene accompagnino storie noir, thriller, scene sanguinose o inquietanti futuri sci-fi, curiosamente queste musiche suonano estremamente sentimentali, delicate e a volte anche sexy.

Fatevi ispirare da Series Noir e traccia dopo traccia dalle spietate frasi tratte dai film.

Series, Soundtrack and Noir Stories: this can summarize the new album by Floraleda Sacchi and Damiano Grandesso.

Series Noir is a collection of celebrated soundtracks from popular films, TV and web series with original arrangements which include a subtle use of electronics, colouring this album with an especially engaging patina.

The album opens with two pieces by Hans Zimmer – an aggressive, crunchy version of The Dark Knight (Batman) theme and the solemn Chevaliers de Sangreal song from the film The Da Vinci Code and its sequels.

In some tracks, the breaths in the sax and the clacking of the instrument’s mechanics create nostalgia of the sea (The Danish Girl by Alexandre Desplat) and a rhythmic base (Dexter by Daniel Licht).

The harp often has paper or metal inserted between its strings or left in its purity, as in the intense pieces by Max Richter (themes of Black Mirror, The Leftovers, Shutter Island). Rubbing on the strings or on the soundboard, creates murmurs on which famous pieces such as The Rain of Castamere from Game of Thrones by Ramin Djawadi unfold.

During London Calling (Star Trek Into Darkness) by Micheal Gioacchino, the sax turns into a disturbing background buzz, while the harp is transformed into an unreal harpsichord that draws touches of light in the neo-baroque Vocalise by Wojciech Kilar .

Even if the themes accompany obscure stories, thrillers and bloody scenes; they curiously sound extremely emotional, delicate and sometimes even sexy…

Let yourself be inspired by Series Noir and, track after track, by the merciless quotes from the movies…
