Geektown Radio : Episode 45 – Interview with Composer Emilio Kauderer, TV Premiere Updates & Air Date Info!
It’s our last episode before Christmas, and as Ross joked about last week, Chris got called away to some unexpected family commitments at the last minute so I’m flying solo (I really should have Ross pick my Lotto numbers) ;). Fear not though, we have a great interview this week with Argentinian composer Emilio Kauderer.
Award-winning composer, Emilio Kauderer composed the soundtrack for Secret in Their Eyes (out in the US now, and due in the UK on 4th March). The film features an award-winning cast of Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and is written and directed by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips). It’s a remake of the Argentinian movie El Secreto de Sus Ojos, which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009, for which Emilio also collaborated on the soundtrack.
Emilio is a Los Angeles-based Argentine composer, and has won many awards for his music. He won the first Platino Award for Best Original Score in 2014, and is also the two-time winner of Argentina’s Academy of Motion Pictures – Premio Sur. Additionally, he is a two-time winner of Argentina’s Critics Award – Premio Clarin, as well as a Latin Grammy winner for his collaboration in Bajo Fondo Tango Club. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recognized him for his outstanding contribution to film music.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic performed Emilio’s music at the prestigious Hollywood Bowl, and was conducted by Maestro Gustavo Dudamel in 2014. Other symphonic work has been performed by the Washington Opera, the Pan American Orchestra in Washington and the National Symphony Orchestras of both Argentina and Honduras. Emilio was recently commissioned to write an orchestral tango piece for the Grammy-nominated group, Eroica Trio.
Emilio’s recently released a soundtrack featuring a vibrant, extended version of the film’s score. The album is available for download on iTunes here.
