    Book: Harmony In The Spanish Soundtracks Of The Nineties

    Based on a PhD dissertation awarded with the Musicology Award 2017 by Spanish Musicological Society.

    Prologue by Pascal Gaigne (Goya 2018 for the Best Original Music).

    “Speaking or writing film music in the language of musicians is not common in bibliography. And to do this without decontextualizing the music of its images, is even rarer. Sergio Lasuén creates a new path in that sense, with a fundamental work to help us understand, from within, the music of Spanish cinema of recent times” . Josep Lluís i Falcó, University of Barcelona

    «I think that it is a very serious, rigorous, exhaustive and interesting work that could be of interest to students of applied music composition». José Nieto, composer
