We invite you to discover the beautiful advert here and read our conversation with the one and only Javier Rodriguez below:
Welcome to our redaction. Can you introduce yourself to our readers and tell us how you started to make music?
I was born in Spain and studied with legendary pianist Rafael Orozco before embarking on a career that would take him around the world. He spent several years as an in-demand composer for both ballet and cinema, while also becoming highly sought-after educator.
In 2014, I was appointed Music Director of The World Ballet, and went on to become nominated for two Tony Awards and a Spirit Independent Cinema Award.
What are your main inspirations to create?
Many things: nature, a breaking news, another melody…
How would you describe your creative process?
Starting from the inspiration, I prepare a draft with the melody or the harmony and then I go from there developing the score, like a painting process basically but with sounds.
Can you present your latest release?
Un Jour Viendra: Written and recorded as a direct soundtrack for the film ‘Un Jour Viendra’, by multi-award-winning director Nicolas Cazalé , these 10 original tracks uniquely relay aspects of a story heavy with the weight of broken families and declining mental health.
‘Un Jour Viendra’ tries to embrace and elevate listeners with both
heartbreak and hope. From the joy and brightness of ‘Another Day’, through the darkness and
minimalism of ‘Un Valse pour Audrey’, to the rising optimism of ‘Le Voyage’ and sudden vocal humanity of ‘Noe’s theme’, this experience draws intricate focus to the changing stages of a gripping story.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I am working on a new film soundtrack, “The Price of Salt” by Senegalese film director Elodie Toto that will be released beginning of 2023.
