Morricone Playing Love Midi


When I was 6 or 7 years old, the State Radio in Istanbul used to broadcast very short excerpts from some melodies when there were still a few minutes to the end-of-the-hour news. I would love those melodies. Many years later I learned that they belonged to Herb Alpert, Paul Mauriat, Frank Pourcel, Raymond Lefevre, Henry Mancini... and Ennio Morricone. Among them, Morricone had already become my favourite when I became a teenager. I bought some cassettes of him. When I was 20, I finally could afford a simple MIDI system (an Atari ST and the cheapest MIDI compatible keyboard model of Yamaha). The first tune I sequenced was one that had been haunting at the background of a very vivid childhood memory: My father was taking me to hospital for a minor illness. We were in a taxi, one of those big black DeSotos roaming on the streets of the city in those days. The distorted sound coming from the radio of the car was playing something before it was interrupted by the robotic sound announcing the 12 o'clock news. I never forgot that melody. It was this melody I sequenced. I was unable to recall many of its details. I sequenced it as I remembered it. Years later I learned that the name of the melody was The Sicilian Clan by Morricone.
