Biography


Composer of music for Film and TV so far responsible for the soundtracks of eighteen feature films and more than fifty signature tunes for television. He has also composed music for documentaries, advertisements and around twenty short films.

A lover of the visual arts, but mainly of cinema in general, his first compositions were featured in television until 2001, when José Luis Garci, one of Spain's leading film directors (Academy Award for Best Film in Foreign Language in 1983 for Volver a Empezar), gave him the opportunity to compose music for the big screen. It was the soundtrack for You're the One. That same year he was awarded the prize for Best Film Score at the 5th Spanish Cinema Festival of Málaga for his work on the film Everything in Place.

In 2002, he continued working with José Luis Garci on the film Story of a Kiss. He has since collaborated with the prestigious film director on five further films, Tiovivo C.1950 (2004), Ninette (2005), Sunday Light (2007), Sangre de Mayo (2008), and Holmes & Watson Madrid Days (2012).

He has composed music for successful TV series as Luna, el Misterio de Calenda (2012), El Corazón del Océano (2011) and Chiringuito de Pepe, currently on broadcast with a magnificent audience share.

He writes, arranges, edits and produces his own works. He has recorded with studio musicians and orchestras both in Spain and abroad. The 17th edition of The Málaga Film Festival honoured him with an award to his successful career in the Spanish Film Industry. The award was granted during a concert in which his film scores were performed on March 2014 at the splendid Cervantes Theatre in Málaga.

His scores for Hotel Danubio, Ninette and The Wild Ones have been nominated for Best Original Score in the prestigious GOYA Awards. He was also nominated three times for best original soundtrack at the Cinema Writers Cycle Awards for You’re the One, Luz de Domingo and Sangre de Mayo.
