Hello,
Our fanzine about Morricone's music and films Maestro # 2 is now issued.
You can see the table of contents and download it at this page : http://www.chimai.com/index.cfm?screen=fanzine&id=2

If you are not a member of chimai.com, you can register for free here :

(select button "Premium" for the access to the fanzine).

We got the same number of pages as the first issue (54), almost the same contributors, with interesting articles, among them, about Goldsmith/Morricone, Quentin Tarantino, The betrothed, and other ones.

Thank you, good reading for Summer.
Patrick

Hello,
I tried in an article in the past, to count the soundtracks until (and including) the year 2002 : 420.
This number contained the films, TV films, documentaries, the rejected and not used music for films projects and the short films, and excluded the theatre-plays, the commercials, the arrangements (even for films), the shows and other entertainements, which seems to be logical.
Since the year 2003, I added 39 assignments until and including 2012.

I reached a whole of about 460 films scores, a number which seems to be fair, before special studies.
In another article, I pointed out wrong assignments, pure mistakes and legends which have a too long life and existing music used in films.

But I am aware that a correct filmography is still to do, and I hope that some day, we will be able, in our fanzine Maestro for instance, to present an argumented dossier of this topic, with discoveries, surprises and interesting information.
But let us take a little time for this.
And the Ennio Morricone musicography on paper, from 1990, has to be updated; let us hope it will be issued in the future. Of course, the paper, even in internet times, could be useful.
And of course, the same work will be also useful and great for other major composers.

Friendly,
Patrick
