Video Premiere: RBMA World Tour in Rome
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Word of enticing lectures and events continues to trickle in from this year's Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, but we haven't forgotten the litany of cool stuff that made up the RBMA World Tour in the months prior to the Academy's official launch in the Spanish capital. We've been premiering each part of the video series summarizing that global trek right here on XLR8R, and the latest chapter comes from Rome, where the RBMA braintrust celebrated Italy's storied history with film soundtracks. The clip chronicles the efforts of composer Massimo Nunzi, who leads a variety of musicians in a 52-piece orchestra to perform new takes on classic soundtrack pieces originally written by the likes of Ennio Morricone, Piero Umiliani, Goblin, and others.
