Interviews with composers of the Spanish cinema
The Invisible Language is a collection of interviews with 18 cinematographic composers who have produced their work for the Spanish cinema during the 1990's and have established a new conception of the soundtrack in our cinema.
The book presents a profession of crucial importance for the reception and the final result of a film. A profession that - at least in our country - hasn't received the critical recognition it deserves. In these interviews, professionals of the field not only outline what have been their careers, but also draw attention to the various aspects of their delicate intervention: the artistic decisions, the technical solutions, their ethical and aesthetical positions in regard to the function they have to fulfill in the ensemble of a film as well as the deviations from and affinities to their collaborators. Their testimonies furthermore create a portrait of what has been the evolution of the sound track in Spain during the last 20 years - in the technological as well as in the purely creative aspect.
