Hi there, welcome!
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, is a composer and producer who writes instrumental music. His music has often been described as sincere, emotional, and immersive.
Having an extensive background as a jazz pianist and composer, the piano often has a very special role in his music, but he also loves writing for strings, the orchestra, and designing his own sounds using a very diverse palette of organic electronic instruments. Sometimes he even builds his own.
Ricardo has released four studio albums, and he combines the work on his own music with the music he writes for film and TV.
He has composed the soundtrack for Netflix limited series El Desorden Que Dejas (The Mess You Leave Behind), and RTVE series Ana Tramel El Juego, both along with acclaimed Argentinian composer Lucio Godoy, the soundtrack for the movies ZERØ and Halcón Ciego, both of which earned him a nomination at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards, and he has also written the opening theme for Movistar+ series Instinto.
Ricardo works from his own studio, Sound Vanguard, in Valencia, Spain, and he collaborates with a great variety of musicians. He has recorded with Hollywood Scoring in Los Angeles, as well as the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in Prague.
Ricardo is a Yamaha Artist and he graduated from Berklee College of Music, in Boston, USA, where he was mentored by the legendary pianist and composer Joanne Brackeen. He also holds a masters degree from Berklee Valencia.
