According to Google's translation of the May 10, 2006, news item below
in Spanish, the score is supposedly to be composed by Roque Baños, a
Spanish composer who has been receiving growing attention as a writer

película sobre el mítico torero que murió en Linares a causa de una
cornada y que interpreta Adrien Brody, es un encargo para Roque Baños.
