I've known Rolando from quite a while and it was more recently that we finally worked together. When I presented him with the film that was to be our first director-composer collaboration I had a complete blank on what the score would be. This man knew from the beginning and it was, very simply put, flawless. Rolando possess the gift of creative innovation and it results in magic every single time. There's a seamless, rhythmic and awesome artistic vibe you feel when you work with him and when you hear his music. It brings you so much joy to hear it all come to life. He is an exceptional maestro, and a great friend too.
