Chiara Kickdrum returns to ACMI and Melbourne Music Week with an exciting new live score to one of the most celebrated Spaghetti Westerns of all time, A Fistful of Dollars
With a career in TV Westerns already under his belt, Clint Eastwood made his leading role debut in Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars. As an archetypical lone gunfighter riding his way into town, Eastwood’s character pits two rival families against one another. Filmed in Spain, and drawing on influences from Japanese Samurai films, Leone’s classic film is credited with redefining the Western genre.
Renowned composer Kickdrum produces music and sound design for film and TV commercials, electronic music for live performances, and the experimental use of field recordings with analogue and digital synthesis. Join her for this immersive experience, sure to take audiences on a journey that’s a feast for the senses.
