SPANISH SUBTITLES FROM ITALIAN - DONAGGIO SINGS A "BONUS TRACK" AT THE END OF THE INTERVIEW
"I only know this," Pino Donaggio says in the video above as he talks about being asked to work on Piranha in 1978. "When Corman saw the movie, he already had music from another composer, from a young man, I don't know. And he said: 'If the movie has stronger music, more importantly, it can make money.' So he asked Joe Dante, do you know any composer that you like? And Dante said: PINO DONAGGIO, because he had seen Carrie." The video comes from the Spanish site TheMovieScores, which features the following description via Google translation:
TheMovieScores exclusive VIDEO INTERVIEW with the great Italian composer, who tells us his story, his beginnings in classical music, his time in pop-rock, and his foray into film music, with his extensive collaboration with the American director BRIAN DE PALMA in films such as Carrie, Blow Out, Dressed to Kill, Body Double, with JOE DANTE in Piranha and The Howling, and also with directors such as Darío Argento, George A. Romero, Pupi Avati, Lucio Fulci, and Tinto Brass, among much others. A very interesting conversation, in which the Venetian master contributed unpublished data, told curious anecdotes and even allowed himself to joke about certain aspects of his prolific career, with more than 200 soundtracks to his credit. A luxury and a pleasure to have had the opportunity to interview PINO DONAGGIO, one of the last sacred monsters of film music of all time. Thanks, Pino !!!!!!
