A mobile production studio for Thom Yorke

The Italian remake of Dario Argento’s horror masterpiece “Suspiria”, directed by Luca Guadagnino, is coming soon in the Italian cinemas (in America it is already available).

The movie was still “musically” popular for the Goblin Music, now replaced by a new original soundtrack composed by Thom Yorke.

Walter Fasano, writer and movie editor, close collaborator of the director, needed an help for the immediate acoustic correction of a room where the OST was going to be created: Thom Yorke was temporarily in Rome for this reason. Donato Masci, involved for this important task, managed in few hours a control room inside an ancient apartment in the heart of Rione Trastevere, famous district in the center of Rome.

Thanks to the collaboration of Gino de Dominicis (MidiWare), Fausto Demetrio (Percorsi Audio) and Valerio Stecca (Acusticarte), a team was built up to put in place a Genelec 5.1 surround system (the three-ways coaxial “The Ones” with the SAM system, perfect for this context) for the artist, with a series of Artnovion panels on the mobile walls for the room correction, which needed a temporary and non-invasive treatment.

The film participated in the 75th edition of the international Venice Film Festival and is in competition for the Golden Lion as best movie. It also received the “La Pellicola D’oro” award for the special effects but, first of all, it was awarded with the “Soundtrack Stars Award” for the best original 2018 song (Suspirium).

We are proud to have contributed, even though in a small part, to this success!
