1. What one thing did you do better today?
I went to a live orchestra concert performing music by Ennio Morricone, who is considered one of the world’s greatest living film composers.
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
Me and my whole family. Anytime we do something all together (which now makes nine of us) feels so special. Mostly thanks to my dad, music has always been an important part of our lives.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
I believe music has a special power to enhance intense emotions. Tonight’s performance was extra special as I am a big fan of films in general and film music in particular. What I look for in movies is the story I can relate to and the best ones are those who I not only relate to but the ones that move me. I believe music plays a big role in making that happen. I was definitely moved by tonight’s experience. Once upon a time in the West was my favourite soundtrack. Added to my wish list is to listen to Hans Zimmer’s soundtracks live and to soundtracks from Three Billboards of Ebbing, Missouri.
