Sounds of Silences – Prizes

A COMPETITION OF MUSICAL COMPOSITION FOR THE MOVING IMAGE 2020

On 21 October 2020 at the Foyer 1 of the Ex Mattatoio (Testaccio) Rome, the final evening of the competition  Sounds of Silences as part of the RomaEuropa Festival 2020 took place with a screening of the films with the soundtracks of the candidates.

Final Ranking:


Diego Ratto, first prize:

motivation:

The music effectively represents the director’s restless attention to a threatened and deformed contemporary reality, not without figures of love correspondences, so as the author draws them from his own interiority.

 

 

 

 

 

Simone Castellan, 2nd prizemotivation:

The drama of a humanity threatened by the flames of conflicts, originating in all evidence from social inequalities, is well represented through an ingenious organization of the means of expression. The formal articulation of the composition is also good, enhancing the poetic quality of the entire film.

 

 

 

 

Paolo Di Rocco, 3rd prize

motivation:

At the same time he was able to grasp the dramatic meaning of the subject and the poetry of the graphic sign.
Music “animates” the film in its fullest dimension.
The musical technical choices affirm the current peaceful synthesis between tradition and experimentation.
