The Architorti soundtrack for GOLTZIUS & THE PELICAN COMPANY has its origins from the concept of seriality applied to music, the same seriality that Goltzius applied to his art, and it's the main inspiration source for the music in the film.

I'm the author of the soundtrack and the founder of Architorti, a unique ensemble in the Italian musical overview. The aim of the project is the creation of a “Bottega Musicale”, where musicians of different stylistic nature can find a creative field in which to work.

The reference model is the Renaissance atelier (workshop), where research and experimentation are the formal and stylistic expression of a new way of making music with the help of electronic machines.

I think that the music in the film is classifiable in four different typologies: the narration, the grotesque, the triumphal and the tragic.

The music written for GOLTZIUS & THE PELICAN COMPANY follows the various emotional situations that the main character experiences in the film; the feature of this music is that it can be transfigured in a vulgar language, pornographic, a lascivious resignation to the other people's pleasure.

I consider this music as Musique concrete (concrete music), a character and not background music, highlighted by the Architorti Quintet cameo in the film, physical presence within the tableaux vivants of the film.
