Ennio Morricone: "My mother was worried about the experiments I was into when I was a student. She told me, 'Ennio, what you write must be catchy, otherwise people won't understand you'. 'Catchy' was a vulgar expression to me, but over the years I've come to realize what she meant. …
In arranging the album I overdid it a little with the experiments. I adopted several unconventional solutions, such as 'dirtied' harmonies produced through pointillist gestures of the strings or specific entrances of the vocalists. Songs like 'Il nome di Maria' and 'In te' feature less obvious solutions, whereas in 'Tu sei una di noi' I inserted a twelve-tone row in a completely tonal context. Yet I believe that 'Lei no, lei sta ballando', in which I used a seven-tone row, is the song most representative of the subject we're dealing with, because of its balance between catchiness and novelty, between the familiar and the unusual. …
At any rate, the album didn't sell well and it took twenty years until it received the recognition it deserved. Just consider that even Buarque had to rehearse extensively because the arrangements were too complex, too distracting for him and he didn't know when to enter. On my part, I had warned him, 'Beware, if you ask me to be your arranger, I'll do what I want. If you want Brazilian stuff, go to Brazil.' Moreover, I followed a personal rule: I took more liberty in experimenting with the long-playing albums than with the singles. This was because the LP was considered an elite, more sophisticated product, while the 45rpm singles were intended for a more generic public." (In His Own Words, pages 185, 186)
