I really like this. It reminds me, in a distant kind of way, to Veu de Noiva OST. A great Brazilian TV soap ST which is a bit less light hearted, more romance than this, i think. Worth seeking, i got it from loronix, but it now seems to have disappeared (i could hook you up tho).

Anyway, this is great stuff, really enjoying it. Many thanks

I particularly like the guy's facial expression on the poster art...

Thanks for the link, Faud! Great blog!

Glad you like this, Councilflat. I'd be very interested to hear the ST you are talking about.

Actually it's nothing like l'arcangelo really, but still it's well worth a listen:

It's the 1st time i've used rapidshare, limited to 10 downloads

I like this soundtrack! Has anyone seen the film or know where to obtain it?
Dear Brainiac, do you happen to have the soundtracks to "Interrabang" by Berto Pisano or to "In Search of Gregory" by Ron Grainer?
Thank again so much!

Brianiac said...

Wille, I believe I do have the Interrabang soundtrack around here somewhere. I will try to get it posted this weekend.

Great soundtrack--thanks! Too bad track 16, Sweet Beguine, seems to have gotten a little mangled, since it's such a nice, "sweet" loungey tune. Nevertheless, thanks for making this available.

a million thanx for all your prcious work, man! This is awesome music... Do you know if there was ever a release of this soundtrack?

Brianiac said...

Thanks for the kind words. I did a little searching and cannot find any indication that a soundtrack was released. A shame because any new Umiliani release would be welcomed.
