I Heart You

Created in 24 hours by Team Neoscape for the Boston Film Race 2010 based on a theme (for sale) and surprise element (a phonebook). For more information on Film Racing and to learn how to participate, visit http://www.filmracing.com.

On this instance I was tasked with making some music, I ended up writing 2 songs and 2 ambient Songs, at the time writing the songs I did not know what the whole movie will look or be about, so of the 2 songs we ended up using “Caminando_Walking” for the titles only. At the end of the day I did refine the songs and included them in my 2010 collection of my music project called “SombreroDos”. go to the music section of the blog to check out the rest of the songs.


“ElectronElectron” ended up on the cutting floor


The Pact

After going trough the painful but fun process of the 24 hour film race, Rodrigo Lopez producer/director and one of Neoscape creative directors decided to get us all in a 100 hour film race. 80% of the “volunteers” of the 24 hour race somehow vanished from the face of the earth, but that did not stop us. On this film I was tasked with writing music again, this time with more time and knowing what the movie would be like. I also participated in shooting the main photography alongside one of the greatest music video producers Vassili Shields (Follow him on Twitter @vassilishields). Filming was done in one day, the music was written the same day during the night so I would not lose inspiration after an exciting day of shooting. It was particularly fun to shoot this at one location and racing against the short Boston winter days. Editing and post processing were done at Neoscape Studios in Boston at later days and nights. Watch the movie, listen to the full music tracks Enjoy and comment.

SombreroDos 2010 Collection UnoOne

(Post Updated for Iphone and Ipad) SombreroDos is a Music project that I started right when I moved to the “US of A”. last year I collected a few songs and “released” them over the internet as an album called “Uno_One” the concept of having the name both in spanish and english came up just because everywhere I look around here there are signs that read that way (Restrooms, restaurants, fire exits and so on)….”DosTwo” was the first one and everything went on from there. it is a slow process but at the end of the day I liked them a lot. feel free to download them and use them for your personal entertainment, anything other than that would be a CRIME!! 😉


This track was written for the 24hr film race for the short “I <3 you" produced by Neoscape but did not make the cut DomingoSunday [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3540085"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Domingo_Sunday.mp3"] This track was a first test at programing in reason and not using my guitars as the main element CaminandoWaliking [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3540071"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Caminando_Walking.mp3"] Track also written for the 24hr film race, this one did make the cut and is used for the credits PatosDuck [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3540036"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Patos_Duck.mp3"] Track written by Cristian Sanchez and me a long time ago and never finished VerdeGreen [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3540004"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Verde_Green.mp3"] with this track I wanted to explore a more complex piece of music in terms of the guitar element DosTwo [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3539975"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Dos_Two.mp3"] Second song of the collection after "PatosDuck" this was the first attempt at using Reason and Audition wired SalidaExit [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/3539918"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Salida_Exit.mp3"] one of the songs the represents what I like a song to be more than anything, simple and strong. also this was the first succesful track (in my mind) after all the other attempts of recording a song AbajoDown [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/2333920"] [audio src="https://carloscristerna.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Abajo_Down.mp3"] and the favorite one, the one that combines all the qualities of the above
