A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER
In the eighties, the Croatian capital Zagreb was, after London, the busiest town for American movie co-productions. One day, a producer from the film company Jadran Film called me to meet Zoran Perisic, who just got an Oscar for special effects for Superman: The Movie. We became friends and during my stay in L.A. for some international song festivals, I was impressed by his invention* in 3-D movies.
After a while, he called from London and asked me, "Can you come to London tomorrow? Maybe you can write music for my movie." I cancelled my tennis, and after a two-hour flight, I was in London. When I came to Pinewood, I realised that producer Richard Herland is also a tennis player and the whole time we spoke about tennis, because there was a Wimbledon tournament going on. Finally, Zoran said, "Enough with tennis, Alfi came for the music." The next day on the way to Wimbledon, and after hearing my symphonic scores, Herland told me that I would be the composer for the movie Gunbus (Sky Bandits in the USA).
Recording with the National Philharmonic Orchestra was fantastic. As I conducted, my every move was immediately transformed into a musical performance with precise, dynamic, excellent musicality and brio. All the soloists were perfect. I had a brilliant sound engineer who also made Beatles records, the famous Keith Grant. After hearing the music and seeing the movie, one critic wrote, "We always think that only American and British composers can write good symphonic music for movies, but this is proof that somebody from a small country can write even better." — Alfi Kabiljo,
