The "New York, a venture" official soundtrack is now available on Bandcamp.
"At the beginning of every project there's always a vision, a sound or a
vibe. Sometimes they come up simultaneously. Sometimes they're the
extension of each other. Sometimes the vibe can generate a vision
developing itself in sonic movements. In the latter case I got the
confirmation that's the starting point of a new movie. While I was
composing this soundtrack three months before beginning the principal
photography in New York City, I was actually figuring out the emotional
tones and visual pace of the scenes rendered in the script and in the
storyboard according to that inner symphony. Some of the tracks were
already well defined before the editing, such as the main theme and the
intro conceived to support the slow, ceremonial passage between New
Jersey and New York through the Lincoln Tunnel. Only the music used to
punctuate the emotive flow of the main dialogue near the Conservatory
Lake in Central park has been composed in post-production. The recurrent
use of sounds of bells, cymbals, xylophones and metallic percussions
derived by the preminent narrative and spiritual roles played by the
Delacorte Musical Clock and the Saint John Cathedral, sort of
techno-gothic heralds of that New York memory breathing into the
steampunk-like coalescence of new and ancient architectures. A mnemonic
puzzle that's the ground and the catalyst where the lost memories of the
protagonists will merge like colors and instruments of a wider musical
New York, a venture O.S.T.

Coming back to the metropolis enshrining one's own childhood
memories, especially after a long amnesiac gap, can be a traumatic
experience itself: Adam Clairfield facing the mutated urbanscape of his
forgotten past. Still from Alessandro Fantini's "New York, a venture"
After 7 months since I completed the script and 1 month since I
finished shooting, now I can say that what looked like an
overambitious and almost utopic project firstly summarized by a
bunch of papers and a pre-production teaser, is finally taking shape between my hands while
I'm assembling the last frames, sounds and effects into a living
mosaic of real and imaginary lives.
My deepest gratitude to the cast and all the people who joined
this "extrasensory" enterprise throughout the sensory overload
