Morricone Youth was formed in 1999 with a mission statement to compose, re-interpret, perform and record "music written for the moving image" (film/tv soundtracks, library music, etc.) in all incarnations from playing shows dedicated to specific composers/film genres in rock clubs/ performance spaces with projections to live scoring films in theaters. Over the years, they've released four CDs, toured and had residencies at the Knitting Factory, CBGB, Tonic and, most recently, Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. Brooklyn Academy of Music and Philadelphia Museum of Art have commissioned the group, respectively, to write an original score to Hitchcock's The Lodger performed Halloween 2013 and a film music "chance" piece based on a chess match between masters for its Marcel Duchamp exhibit in 2012.
