TO LIVE TWICE
ABOUT THE FILM
To Live Twice, directed by Maria Ripoll, is a dramatic comedy about a dysfunctional family who go on a long-lost-love road trip for the grandfather and rediscover each other in the process. Starring Oscar Martínez, Inma Cuesta and Mafalda Carbonell, the film came out in the autumn to great reviews especially in the portrayal of the central character’s struggle with advancing dementia.
ABOUT THE MUSIC
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.
