Rubén Gallardo, soundtrack composer, was born in Mallorca (Balearic Islands) in 1992, entering the world of music at an early age.

.

His interest in this was thanks to the influence of his father, who taught him the first chords of guitar and piano.

.

At the age of six, Rubén already knew how to play various instruments, including piano, guitar, flute, and drums.

From the age of 15, he began to form part of musical groups comprised of various styles and in which, thanks to these, he began to make contacts within the music sector in Mallorca.

.

Self-taught and out of 'curiosity' , he began in musical composition, making his first compositions, beginning his first symphonic works.

.

During the following years, he trained as a sound technician and graduated as a music producer.

.

Once he finished his studies, Rubén joined the Majorcan singer-songwriter Sara Reus as lead guitarist, with whom he would begin a tour in 2015 throughout the Balearic scene and some parts of the peninsula after Sara's first release.

.

At the end of the tour, Rubén meets Marcos Callejo (Mallorcan filmmaker), offering to create the Soundtrack for the feature film Zerø. The following year, the composer began to compose said Soundtrack, this being his first symphonic work for the image.

This aroused the interest of several directors, including the filmmaker Antoni Caimari, who commissioned him to make the Soundtrack for the short film 'Ma Belle' (2017), starring Macarena Gómez. From there, Rubén discovered his new vocation in the audiovisual sector and began to train himself in composition for audiovisual media.

.

After finishing the Soundtrack of 'MaBelle' and carrying out some commissions for commercials, Rubén embarks on the composition of his instrumental project 'Luna', fusing ethnic music with music from soundtracks. The album, released in summer 2018, prompts various media to start arousing interest in the young composer, conducting interviews and explaining the creative process of 'Luna' and his previous works. After the release, Rubén affirms that 'Luna' belongs to a musical trilogy with a creative process of 8 years from its first release to the last.
