Biography

Elia Cmiral emerged among the most compelling and innovative action composers of his era via John Frankenheimer’s 1998 cult beloved Ronin. Delivered in Czechoslavakia in 1957, Cmiral was the kid of an celebrity and stage movie director. After composing his initial symphony at age group 11, he constructed his initial theatrical rating for his father’s creation of Cyrano de Bergerac. After fleeing his Communist-controlled homeland for Sweden in 1980, Cmiral examined digital music in Stockholm, ultimately earning a grant in the School of Southern California, where he pursued film music and in 1988 was commissioned to create his initial Hollywood rating for the underground strike Apartment No. Cmiral nevertheless came back to Sweden in 1991 and done some European-produced movies and tv series before time for the U.S. in 1996 to rating the fledgling Don Johnson cop series Nash Bridges. He also gained see for his focus on the gaming THE FINAL Express before getting widespread worldwide acclaim for his focus on Frankenheimer’s acclaimed thriller Ronin. After making it through the debacle of John Travolta’s L. Ron Hubbard version Battlefield Globe in 2000, Cmiral aligned himself with some low-budget horror films including 2001’s Bone fragments, 2002’s Wes Craven Presents: They, and 2003’s Wrong Change, remaining a popular of soundtrack fanatics even though his industrial profile dipped substantially.
