Born in Madrid, Arturo Cardelús is a young Spanish composer living in Los Angeles with a very promising career. Dedicated and award-winning classical pianist, Arturo Cardelús began to attract attention with his album ‘Con Aire de Tango (2013)‘, which was commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic soloists after they discovered their music on YouTube.
Since his debut with the short film ‘Sol (2011)‘, Arturo has been testing different genres and styles to reach what is probably his best-known work, the original Netflix mini-series ‘Chiamatemi Francesco (2016)‘ based on the life of Pope Francis.
In recent years, Cardelús has left us with stupendous works such as the documentary ‘The People’s Fighters (2018)‘ or the unusual animated short film ‘In a Heartbeat (2017)‘.
The animated film ‘Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas (2018)‘ narrates a stage in the life of the Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel (1900-1983), an internationally recognized figure in the world of cinema and art, and who his exile due to the Spanish Civil War, he was nationalized Mexican. The film focuses on the friendship between a Luis Buñuel who started as a film director, and the artist and anarchist Ramón Acín, who, due to a fortune-telling with the lottery, helped finance his controversial documentary project ‘Las Hurdes, tierra sin pan (1933) ‘.
One of the novelties that Rosetta Soundtrack will bring us next month is the record with the music of Sergio Moure de Oteyza for the SON musical show of the company Nova Galega de Danza. A show where the Galician tradition embraces the Spanish, and plays with the sensitivity and rudeness of a sculptor’s creative process through 10 choreographic pieces.
“SON has been one of the most beautiful and enriching projects I’ve done throughout my career as a composer. Marrying rhythmic, harmonic and melodic elements, which are both so distant and so close, gives one the idea of what universal music and how interconnected all is”
One of the next novelties of Rosetta Soundtrack is the album of the B.S.O. ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS, by Kristian Eidnes Andersen & Nicklas Schmidt, which will be edited in collaboration with Mikael Carlsson (Moviescore Media).
We already have B.S.O available for sale. from THE HOUSEMAID that Jerome Leroy composed for this film by the vietnamese director Derek Nguyen.
An Asian story of ghosts.
“Jerome delivered a score that was frightening yet beautiful. There are times when I just listen to it on its own without the film because I find it so beautiful, lyrical, and melodic. The music is so emotionally true to the characters in the film. It really enhanced its emotional core.”
The music magazine SCHERZO, one of the most important in the country, collects in its January issue an interview with our friend Juan Ángel Saiz, founder of the record label SAIMEL RECORDS and of ROSEBUD TIENDA DE CINE, in Valencia (see map), a emblematic place for all movie lovers.
