LOS ANGELES (April 22, 2010) – The evocative score to this year’s Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film, Sony Picture Classics’ The Secret In Their Eyes, is now available from Milan Records for digital download through iTunes and Amazon.com and in stores May 25th. The score is co-composed by Emilio Kauderer and Federico Jusid. The music creates a powerful combination with the visuals as it captures the tension and romance of this richly layered film. The film is currently playing major cities. The score continues to receive critical acclaim winning the Argentinean Academy Award, the Clarin Award, the Havana Film Festival Award along with CEC Award and the Goya Award nominations.
The Secret In Their Eyes is a riveting Argentine thriller spiked with witty dialogue and poignant love stories. The film interweaves the personal lives of a state prosecution investigator and a judge with a manhunt spanning 25 years. The composers wrote a variety of cues, from soft tender moments featuring piano and violin solos to tense action sequences with riveting percussion.
“The Secret would have been impossible without them,” says director Juan Campanella. “Emilio and Federico have created a melody that makes us feel tension and suspense at the same time we feel the love and nostalgia that this story requires. With this musical paradox juggling unusual elements, the music transports us to two intersecting and parallel worlds.”
Emilio Kauderer mixes elements of his South American roots with his European heritage and delivers a unique palette of up-to-date orchestral sounds. From contemporary to classical Kauderer adds passion and heart to today’s music scene. “It was a difficult, fine line between a thriller and a love story,” says Kauderer about his score. “We had to work it out so it doesn’t feel melodramatic yet we needed the intensity.”
Kauderer’s film credits include Disney’s High School Musical (Latin American versions), Heist directed by Rick Jordan, Conversations with God directed by Stephen Simon, Culture Clash in AmeriCCa directed by Emilio Estevez. His TV credits include Dead Like Me, CSI: Miami, Resurrection Blvd., and Life With Bonnie.
Emilio Kauderer was selected to compose the music for New York’s Holocaust Museum, was awarded a fellowship to the Sundance composer’s Lab and was one of the composers of the Latin Grammy Award-winning Bajofondo. The Argentinean native who now lives in Los Angeles was recently recognized by the Board of Commissioners of Los Angeles County for his contributions to Latin and film music.
