About Dominicana Music:
The music of "Dominicana: The Land Beyond The Blue" was born homogeneously with the development of the video. The evocative images together with the rhythm of Oliver's editing strongly influenced me, throwing me in an instinctive but always conscious creative flow. The dialogue with the director was fundamental to clarify the ideas to develop and the type of instrumentation to use. We wanted a highly cinematic piece that would blend in with the narrative of the film and contain contaminations of typical Dominican instruments (trumpet, classical guitar, piano, various percussions).
