The Untouchable

"I am only a composer who conducts his own music" shares with us modestly and unpretentiously the great Ennio Morricone. After a short conversation on the phone, we are absolutely sure that he is a confident, uncompromising and strong-minded person and creator. He is able to afford his self-confidence because of the genious film compositions, at least.

You compose by hand on a blank sheet of paper. How do the first notes emerge on the paper?
Well, the blank sheet of paper always plunges the composer to crisis. Before he starts writing, he has to think first, to speculate, in order to be sure. And then, when he is sure about the writing, he has to be able to delete and start again and again.
