This compilation celebrates 20 years in film music of Pascal Gaigne, one of the most essential and respected composers in the Spanish cinema, whose career is a constant work-in-progress.
Pascal Gaigne, born in France in 1958 and installed in Spain since 1985, has made serious efforts in the fields of contemporary music, world music and ballet, winning several awards around the world. Although started working in films by casuality, his sensorial sounds and unforgettables melodies (with a full emotional and inimitable style) beginning to be required by some of the most interesting new directors in Spanish cinema (Víctor Erice, Icíar Bolláin, Salvador García Ruíz, Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, Montxo Armendáriz), and foreigner directors from other countries like France (Le cou de la girafe), Finland (Matka Edeniin) or Cuba (Omerta).
This album is a deserved tribute. In addition to his most popular works (Gordos, Azul oscuro casi negro, El sol del membrillo), you can find some rares, unreleased and har-to-find themes, all of them from its original versions.
