SARO (soundtrack of the film by Enrico Maria Artale) is the latest work by Marco Messina and Emanuele de Raymondi, two of the rising stars, respectively, in ambient electronic and contemporary classical scenes in Italy. The result of their collaboration is an elegantly crafted musical journey, between minimalistic string arrangements and textural modular synths, perfectly integrated to enhance the imagery of the film.
