A LOVE TO REMEMBER, A TRIP TO FORGET…
This spring I had the pleasure of working with Arnau Bataller on the score for Maria Ripoll’s latest film, TO LIVE TWICE (Vivir Dos Veces). It is a dramatic comedy about a dysfunctional family who go on a long-lost-love road trip and rediscover each other in the process. Starring Oscar Martínez, Inma Cuesta and Mafalda Carbonell, it hit cinemas on 5th September 2019.
The score – written by Arnau Bataller with additional compositions by myself – features vintage piano, intimate and kooky ensemble moments, as well as soaring strings recorded in Budapest. I worked closely back and forth with Arnau to help him create his vision, produced most of the music in my studio and acted as lead pianist.
We also produced several covers for the soundtrack, from a blaring rockabilly rendition of Tainted Love to the world classic Perfidia (a key part of the story) performed for the credits by Maria Rodés.
