Yesterday was officially announced the premiere of the Netflix original movie ‘El Páramo’ by David Casademunt, next October at the Sitges International Film Festival.
This news would be the news of just another premiere, were it not for the fact that its soundtrack, created by conductor and composer Diego Navarro, was recently recorded in Krakow and SoundTrackFest was invited to the event.
On Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th of August, the recording sessions took place at the Polish S-3 TVP Studios in Krakow, where the Beethoven Academy Orchestra conducted by Diego Navarro, gave life for the first time to the soundtrack of the film. In the recording predominated the string section, with the participation of piano, celesta, harp, and flutes.
The technical team of these sessions was formed by Pedro J. Mérida (score coordinator), Gonzalo de Araoz Vigil (assistant to Diego Navarro), and Bartek Staniak (recording engineer), with the presence of Marcin Klejdysz (producer of the Beethoven Academy Orchestra) and Agata Grabowiecka (KBF / Krakow FMF – Film Music Festival). It should be noted that the role of the Krakow FMF and its brotherhood with Fimucité, were fundamental for these recordings to take place in Krakow, days before the celebration of the 14th edition of the festival.
In addition to the technical team, these sessions were attended by the director of the film David Casademunt, very interested in the whole creative process surrounding the music of his movie, and Gorka Oteiza, founder and director of SoundTrackFest, who kept an eye on all the details of the event.
We are sure you are eager to know more, and that’s why we are preparing a very special article regarding the recording sessions, which will include interviews with Diego Navarro and David Casademunt … but you will still have to wait a little bit longer to read it. 😉🎶📃
While that moment arrives, we leave you a few exclusive photos of the recording sessions, as well as the full official press release:
