Spain's best (and, after Almodovar, second best-known) film director, Bigas Luna, asked Piano Magic to score his film, Son De Mar after he'd walked into a Barcelona record store last year and heard a track from their 1998 album Low Birth Weight. Son De Mar translates as 'the sound of the sea' but also carries the sense 'born of the sea'. The soundtrack was recorded (as was Piano Magic's last album, Artist's Rifles) over 5 days at Woodbine Street Studios, Leamington Spa with John Rivers - once the favored recording location of Dead Can Dance. Son De Mar is divided into 6 untitled sections, with a running time of just under 40 minutes. 4AD. 2001.
