|Spaghetti Western Orchestra (Australia)
The funniest musicians salute the best Spaghetti Western film scores.
Over 100 off-the-wall instruments!
"An endearing, impressive show" – The Guardian, UK
The cowboys are coming to town! Spurning rugged appearances and tough-guy manner, this gang turns out to be loveable boys in business suits performing magnificent soundtracks from Spaghetti Westerns familiar to all. Listen up as the five multi-talented musicians interpret works by maestro Ennio Morricone in fun, innovative ways, taking the audience on a memorable musical journey into the cinematic Wild West.
A prolific film composer, Italian-born Morricone has written scores for more than 300 movies, including epics such as Once Upon a Time in the West, Gangland Odyssey and Cinema Paradiso.
The Spaghetti Western Orchestra plays 100 different instruments ranging from traditional to ingenious self-made devices created from everyday objects. Coat hangers, rubber gloves, nail clippers, knives, cornflakes, asthma inhalers and many other items are skillfully employed to create a full orchestral sound, delivered along with entertaining antics on stage. Enjoy famous Western theme tunes recreated in a refreshing, light-hearted way. Bravo!
