Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

2. Alessandro AlessandroniRomance And Drama

I think this is probably the record I’ve listened to most in my life. I discovered it about twelve-years-ago, at a time when I was fascinated by the idea of composing music for a movie that you still don’t know anything about. To create these kind of generic emotions is wonderful – he’s creating something for this subject, romance and drama, and it really captures those feelings. What I think is most interesting for me is how he mixes synth arpeggios with guitar or string instruments. It really made me think about this sense of liminality, the possibility of crossing genres without any compromise. I feel that here he puts in so many things just because it makes sense. I love that.
