Toni M. Mir.
Spanish composer and Goya nominee, Toni M. Mir began studying piano at the Conservatori del Liceu in Barcelona at the age of 6. Since then, music has been his life’s passion.
When he was nineteen, Toni began a 10-year internship in a well-known Spanish production company composing music primarily for TV commercials. This allowed him to explore a vast array of musical styles and sharpen his skills in the creation of dynamic music. Though always focused on tailoring his music to its narrative goals, Mir also managed to develop a voice and a style of his own.
In 2001, Mir composed his first feature 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.
His work has drawn him into the American market beginning with the soundtrack for the US/Spanish documentary “New York Showcase”, directed by Albert Uría (2012), and Hollywood feature films, “Greencard Warriors”, written and directed by Miriam Kruishoop (2013), and “Chances”, directed by Han Rhyu (2014). Recently, he composed the soundtrack of the Argentinian blockbuster, “El Ciudadano Ilustre”, directed by Gastón Duprat y Mariano Cohn (2016) and the yet unreleased film “Expansivas", written and directed by Ramiro García Bogliano.
In the Rio de Janeiro Pre-Olympic Games (2016), Mir musicalized Spain’s synchronised swimming performances: Technic Team and Duet Free (starred by Mengual and Carbonell). The tracks were “El agua en todas sus formas” and “Pasión Flamenca”.
Also, Toni composed the main theme of the Spanish director Lucia Alemany’s debut “La Inocencia” (2020), nominated to various contests such as SSIFF, Premis Gaudí and Premios Goya. The song, “Allí en la Arena”, is a Spanish pasodoble that gave Toni his first nomination to the Premios Goya.
Though now devoting the majority of his time to music for cinema, Mir continues to polish his storytelling skills in all mediums, writing and producing award-winning music for features, documentaries, scripted television, theatre, short films, and prominent advertisers.
In 2004 he created his own composition studio, Trafalgar13 Music House, where to this day still continues to work with top Spanish and international directors, agencies and producers for various projects in film, advertising, TV, documentaries, short films, etc. Toni’s composing studio is based in his beloved city of Barcelona, Spain.
