A three day mini-film festival, “The Music of Morricone,” begins tonight at BAM. The superstar film-composer Ennio Morricone is noted for mixing all kinds of sounds into his scores, including whistling--- which, As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, has its own, colorful history. Here is this Fishko Files.
"The Music of Morricone" begins tonight at BAM, and runs through Saturday. For more information, and ticket details, visit BAM's website.
