Toni M. Mir
Spanish Composer Toni M. Mir began studying piano at the Conservatori del Liceu in Barcelona at the tender age of 6. Since then, music has been his life’s passion.
In 1993, when he was nineteen, Toni began a 10-year stint in a well-known production house in Spain where he composed music primarily for advertizing clients. Mir credits these years for allowing him to explore a vast array of musical styles and sharpen skills in the creation of dynamic music within constrained budgets and tight deadlines. Though always focused on tailoring his music to its narrative goals, Mir also managed to develop a voice and style all his own.
In 2001, Mir composed his first feature-length film score, for La Fura dels Baus’s Fausto 5.0. Following this success, he went on to write an original score for Ventura Durall’s “Las Dos Vidas de Andrés Rabadán”, a psychological drama based on the life of Andrés Rabadán (the crossbow murderer) which received many prestigious awards including: Best European Dramatic Feature at the European Independent Film Festival (ÉCU) in Paris.
Recent projects have drawn him into the American market beginning with the soundtrack for the US/Spanish documentary “New York Showcase”, directed by Albert Uría (2012), and recent Hollywood feature films, “Greencard Warriors”, written and directed by Miriam Kruishoop (2013), and “Chances”, directed by Han Rhyu (2014).
Though now devoting the majority of his time to music for cinema, Mir continues to hone his storytelling skills in all mediums, writing and producing award-winning music for features, documentaries, scripted television, theater, short films, and prominent advertisers (incl. IKEA, Vodaphone, and Nokia).
Toni’s composing studio, Trafalgar13, is based in his beloved city of Barcelona, Spain.
