It was a cold, snowy to drink mate morning in Montreal when I opened for the first time Eliseo Subiela's script for THE DARK SIDE OF THE HEART, and its front page read: "I do not give a damn if women have breasts like magnolias, or like fig raisins... etc. "
From that moment on it was a journey without stops until the last page, a great moment, I could not believe it, before composing the first note and seeing the first frame I could imagine the whole movie.
Many years later talking about this topic in an interview I said that there are scripts that are not read, but that are seen and heard, and this was the first of them. And so it was that we started, faxes to-and-from, exchanging ideas until I sent him an audio cassette (via FedEx) and a few days later I received a fax from Eliseo, which I kept until a few years ago, almost illegible. He himself said something like this: "After listening to the music that you sent me for The Dark Side of the Heart, I want to tell you that co-production or not, I want you to make the music of my film."
And that's when they continued to fly like Ana and Oliverio, cassettes with music between Montreal and Buenos Aires.
Today I have the pleasure of sharing this new edition of the music of a movie that gave me the opportunity not only to compose the music of this extraordinary film, but to meet a unique director and a dear friend who will always be Eliseo "Chiche" Subiela.
