"The Music of the Soul"
Composer and music producer born in Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona). Self-taught, he began composing shortly before he was 12 years old.
Leaving aside the work he has done for external projects (film, TV, advertising, multimedia projects, etc.), it is in his own discography (11 studio albums) where we find his most personal music, constructed as a diary where he expresses the feeling lived in his “day by day”. For this reason it is so difficult to pigeonhole it into a specific musical style. His compositions are the hybrid result that appears from mixing sounds without any kind of stylistic limit. Electronic sounds created with the most advanced software, very elaborate orchestrations, classical instruments such as strings or the piano, as well as the sound of electric guitars or traditional ethnic instruments. His musical pieces are small soundtracks, where in most compositions the voice is used as a pure instrument. For this reason the letter is phonetic and has no meaning. He defines himself as "Composer of Instrumental and Phonetic Music".
Among his cinematographic productions, the soundtrack for the official film in the history of F.C.Barcelona "Barça Dreams" (2015), directed by Jordi Llompart and distributed by Filmax International, stands out. Within the world of short films, the music for the short "Clones" stands out, a competitor in the official section of the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival (2015) and winner of the best international short in Los Angeles IFS Film Fest (2016). Directed by Rafael Bolliger with the actor Rutger Hauer known for starring in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" in 1982.
Roger has licensed and composed music for major international brands such as Shiseido, Swatch, Renault, Inverse or Ducati.
On Jamendo, the world's largest Creative Commons music online platform, his music has exceeded 10 million listens and more than two million downloads.
“Between Worlds”, a song from the album “XII (2013)” appeared under license in the film “Forever Young” (2018) directed by Li Fangfang. It was one of the highest grossing films of that year in China and the song was one of the most listened in NetEase Music Cloud (the equivalent of Spotify in China) accumulating more than twelve million listens in less than a year. Red Dragon is a hybrid of Western and Eastern epic music that Roger composed in 2021 to thank his audience in China.
Throughout these years he has had several recognitions and awards, among which we highlight being the winner of the Jamendo Awards (2011) as the best artist in World Music, receiving the award for the best soundtrack at the International Short Film Festival Visionicorte (Italy) with the short directed by Sergi Martí Maltas “La Banyera” or being a finalist at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards in Los Angeles (2021) for the composition “Letters from the Future” in the “Contemporary Classical” section, accompanied by the cellist María G. Figueroa.
