What is Suntracks?
Suntracks was created with the aim of connecting international music supervisors with the wide and rich catalog of popular and contemporary Spanish music.
10 music supervisors from around the world are invited to visit the city of Seville. We will carry out nine thematic auditions in historical and exclusive spaces of the city.
The auditions have been curated and will be presented by 10 prescribers from the music industry in our country.
SUNTRACKS will open its sessions and meetings in a limited way to guests from the Spanish film and music industries, thus facilitating the connection of all those interested with these international music supervisors who, due to their work, represent a new and exciting line of business.
DAY 1 26/04/2022
Curated and presented by: Iñigo Munster (Munster Records / Vampisoul)
A session of cult classics -hidden treasures, values to claim, unusual rarities…- with the personal stamp of Iñigo Pastor, considered by many to be a kind of Indiana Jones music lover for his almost archaeological work in the vast catalog of national music and Latin American. Iñigo Pastor is the founder of Munster Records and Vampisoul, two indispensable labels in the musical education of our country, which have spent decades – as the slogan of the former’s 30th anniversary said – “illuminating creatures and unearthing monstrosities”. His work has undoubtedly been fundamental in rescuing from oblivion artists such as Los Saicos or Elia y Elizabeth, among many others now known by the new generations, and compilations such as “Algo Salvaje”, “Sensational Soul” or “Chicas!” they have become indispensable bibles for the hobbyist.

FLAMENCO IS NOT A CRIME
Curated and presented by: Los Voluble
Session dedicated to flamenco in all its variants and all its periods, always from an audiovisual perspective in search of those compositions that can serve as narrative support on celluloid and/or television. Los Voluble are the brothers Pedro and Benito Jiménez, who since 1996 have developed projects of audiovisual experimentation and sound activism in a multitude of formats. Flamenco, noise, rap, election ads, Easter, advertising and home movies make their sessions a complex net of digital folklore mixed with analog instruments. The most common is to see them work from audiovisual improvisation, political video remix and in collaboration with other artists such as Raúl Cantizano, Niño de Elche or Rocío Márquez.
