Hi there, welcome to my gallery.
Here you will find everything about my work.
Dear visitor, I believe the inspiration we get from any form of art brings us closer to our truest and most honest self, while helping us connect to each other in an almost spiritual way. As I enjoy the profound experience of creating new music everyday, it would mean the world to me if my work could help to inspire you, even if it is just for an instant.
I felt in love with film music after developing a career in jazz piano and electronic music. Here you can check out my work for movies and tv, as well as my experimental projects and my jazz albums.
I find improvising and composing are often the same thing,
it's all about the sound.
Ricardo Curto, originally from Canary Islands, Spain, started composing music for film after developing a successful career as a jazz pianist and composer, being known for mixing acoustic and electronic sounds.
He has an extensive background in sound design and electronic music production, as well as writing for the orchestra an a very diverse palette of acoustic instruments.
Ricardo is a Yamaha Artist and he graduated summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA), where he was mentored by the legendary pianist Joanne Brackeen. He also holds a masters degree from Berklee Valencia. He has released four jazz piano albums as a leader featuring his own compositions.
Ricardo works from his own state of the art film music studio, "Sound Vanguard", in Valencia, Spain. He is responsible, among others, for the soundtrack of Netflix TV show El Desorden Que Dejas (The Mess You Leave Behind), which he co-composed together with Lucio Godoy, the soundtrack of the movie ZERØ, by Iñaki Sánchez Arrieta, and the soundtrack for the movie Halcón Ciego, by Marino Darés, which earned a nomination to Best Original Score in an Independent Film at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards 2018. He has also worked on Movistar+ TV show Instinto.
