Dornsife Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Southern California, and Perona is the Allen E. Puckett Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computation and Neural Systems at Caltech.

Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science as part of an ongoing series at LACMA. In a rare Los Angeles appearance, legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone discusses his far-ranging career in a dialogue with writer/director Quentin Tarantino. With over 500 credits and various accolades including an Honorary Award from the Academy, the prolific and versatile Morricone has written music for films ranging from Sergio Leone classics such as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly and Once upon a Time in the West, revolutionary auteur Pier Paolo Pasolini's Teorema and The Decameron, and cult classics from Mario Bava (Danger: Diabolik) and Elio Petri (Investigation of a Citizen above Suspicion), not to mention countless Spaghetti Westerns and recent collaborations with Brian De Palma, Warren Beatty, and Giuseppe Tornatore.
Two-time Academy Award® winner Tarantino has directed films that have redefined the American cinematic landscape, beginning with the one-two punch of Reservoir Dogs and the Palme d’Or–winning Pulp Fiction. Beginning with 2003’s Kill Bill: Volume 1 and continuing with subsequent films Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, Tarantino has masterfully employed the music of Morricone, introducing the maestro’s epic scores to new audiences.
