The weekend is upon us and the Synth fuelled trip down memory lane continues. We are joined by Italy’s very own Vincenzo Salvia, who spared us some time off of his hectic schedule to share a quick movie recommendation and let us know what he’s been up to.
Hey Vincenzo, thank you for joining us. What’ve you got to recommend to our readers today?
A peculiar movie I always keep deep inside in my memories is Rain Man starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. I actually saw it for the first time as a very child, so I probably couldn’t catch all of the films’s the details, but when a petrolhead kid sees a movie starting with a couple of Lamborghini Countach’s… then you know it’s going to be good. I must’ve watched it four or five times in total. With that being said, the story is quite simple and I’m not going to spoil anything!
The movie is about the difficult relation about Charlie (Tom Cruise) and his autistic brother Raymond (Dustin Hoffman). There are many touching moments (yeah, I’m a sensitive guy) and everything is beautifully accompanied by a Hans Zimmer score. That was the first time hearing about him and I have to say the Rain Man Theme is one of the best soundtracks I ever heard. It got nominated for Best Soundtrack at the 1988 Oscars. Many scenes are representative of this movie: the casino, the walking on the tree-lined avenue and long travel by car (because Raymond is afraid of planes). It’s very outrun J.
What’ve you been up to, music-wise? Any projects or news you’d like to share?
Since being featured in Stranger Things, I’ve been slowing down a bit with my compositions, relaxing and enjoying the moment. I recently released an EP called Out Now and a single with my talented friend Mental Exile ‘We are nothing but a game’, and now I’m out searching for new sounds and concepts. I’m probably going to abandon the Italo touches for this release and go down the Nightdrive/Outrun route, simply because I need new music for my Assetto Corsa game soundtracks.
