1972-1974

Soundtracks


The artistic collaboration between Piero Umiliani and director Luigi Scattini, now close friends, reaches its peak thanks to the movies with actress Zeudi Araya, admired by millions of people in “La Ragazza dalla Pelle di Luna” (“The Sinner”), “La Ragazza Fuoristrada” and “Il Corpo” (“The Body”). In these movies, Umiliani’s music evolves extending towards new horizons, thanks also to sonorities experimented by the Maestro in his recording studio SoundWorkShop, in the Trionfale district of Rome. Themes range from funk to jazz, from easy listening to latin, or have innovative western-exotic ambience like the track “Pelle di Luna”.
Electronic keyboards directly imported from the US, make their way into the tracks bringing new harmonies and moods. Zeudi herself, at the time twenty-two years old and at the top of her popularity, works in the recording studio with the Maestro. “
I have recorded a 45 LP for the soundtrack of “La Ragazza Fuoristrada” – says Zeudi in an interview in “Eva Express” dated September 25, 1973 – “ and everybody says that the record is very good, thanks to the accompaniment of exotic instruments and to my deep voice.”
This period is completed by the western-thriller “
10 Bianchi Uccisi da un Piccolo Indiano” (“Blood River”), by a sexy documentary film with Renzo Arbore’s narrating voice and finally by the first experiments of sexy comedies “Il Domestico” and “La Schiava Io Ce l’Ho e Tu No” starring Lando Buzzanca, where the score is pure and entertaining easy listening.
