One minute measured by a bus arrivals board in the city of Bergen, Norway, slowed down to the rhythm of the reading of a selection and remixing of fragments that allude to the sound in the novel Some rain must fall (My struggle, volume 5), by the Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgård, which takes place in the same city. The subtitling presents some interventions made by Martínez, thus resorting to two strategies that he has been pursuing for some years now in part of his work: the sound in literature and the constant association and dislocation between auditory and visual narratives.

Some rain must fall was published in Spanish by Editorial Anagrama in 2017.
