Se Telefonando (1966)

In Spring 1966, Maurizio Costanzo and Ghigo De Chiara, the authors of the Aria condizionata TV show, wrote the lyrics of the theme for their TV program. The serialist composer Ennio Morricone was asked to compose the music for the dark mode lyrics of "Se telefonando". The encounter of the three authors and Mina took place in a Radiotelevisione Italiana rehearsal room at Via Teulada, Rome. Morricone started to repeat a short musical theme, or by his words a "micro-cell" of just three notes at an upright pianoforte. He had caught the piece of melody from the siren of a Marseilles police car. After a few bars Mina grabbed the sheet with the lyrics and started to sing, as if she had known the tune before. The result was a pop song with eight transitions of tonality building tension throughout the chorus. Morricone's arrangement featured melodic trumpet lines, Hal Blaine-style drumming, a string set, a sixties Europop female choir and intense subsonic-sounding trombones.
