This project is a branch of a doctoral research project funded by FAPESP, entitled "Moacir Santos ghostwriter: the composition of musical scores for films in the North-American period". This proposal describes the objectives, the background and the work plan of the short term research internship to be held in 2015 at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), in order to collect and catalog precious information of the Moacir Santos' audiovisual work in his North-American period. The temporal cut of the research stands between 1967 a 1985, when Santos became a requested composer in California's cinema and television industries, participating in the production of important movies and TV shows of the period, being a ghostwriter in the teams of Henry Mancini (1924-1994) and Lalo Schifin (1932-). The main focus of the internship period abroad will be to conduct an extensive field research, with a number of interviews with professionals who have worked with Santos at that time or who worked as ghostwriters in the film music local companies. We also intend to perform visits to several archives, with special attention to the personal collection of the Santos family, who lives in Pasadena and holds a considerable amount of scores, notebooks, books, records and other materials, which will be of great importance for the proper execution of the doctoral research.
