"The quality, precision, authenticity, talent and warmth of both interpreters in this flute/guitar duo are such, that the listener has the impression of hearing these tangos for the first time, even if they are in fact classics from the Golden Age. Such is the amazing style of Flor de Tango."

Farinelli, il Castrato :: film directed by Gérard Corbiau.
Film Soundtrack CD Release 1994
Guillermo was the audio algorithm engineer for the film. At IRCAM in Paris, he created the technology to make Farinelli's castrato voice by combining a female with a male voice, based on the voices of soprano Eva Mallas-Godlewska and counter-tenor Derek Lee Ragin. He and his team used this technology to produce 40 minutes of singing voice for the film. "Farinelli" was nominated for an Oscar to Best Foreign Language Film in 1995, and won the César Award to Best Soundtrack (1995) and the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film (1995). The soundtrack CD was the best-selling classical album of all times in France, winning a Disque D'Or, and led French rankings for a few weeks beating albums by Beatles, Elton John and Sting.
