Toti Soler, D'una manera silenciosa

Director Jordi Turtós, Àngel Leiro
Spain / 56 min. / 2013 / Catalan


"I came here to find myself again". Toti Soler's slow exile to Catalonia's Alt Empordà is the origin of a major biography on music. It speaks of essences and of families, of "infinite sorrow", of silence, of Ovidi Montllor and of recognition. The guitar plays. 

 

"I came here to find myself. To do what I like to do. And this is the ideal place to make unhurried music, the music that comes out of my head." The "here" to which the Catalan guitarist refers is Palau Sator, a tiny Gironese town in the Baix Empordà, where he took refuge in 2012, following his recent separation. This self-imposed restful exile is the starting point for a subjective look at the musician – more a reflection on his vision than a biographic memoir. Relaxed and in his element, cycling around or lighting a fire. Soler talks to us about the early days, about essences and families, his past and his solo projects and his presence in Pic-Nic, OM (alongside his eternal sidekick Jordi Sabatés), Pau Riba (in Dioptria) and the forever-remembered Ovidi Montllor, plus his flamenco illumination. But he also ruminates on the "infinite sorrow" he suffers and how he channels it into his art, on silence ("a space where everyone can enter"), recognition ("Show business isn't my thing. What I do is something else") and timelessness. The guitar plays on.
