Cinematic Music

My name is Fernando J. Moguel and my favorite thing to do is create.  I love composing music, illustrating, taking photography, producing videos, writing poetry, and many more creative things.  I have experience in many creative fields, though I specialize in music creation and production.  I made FJM Creative so I could help others create while doing what I love most. 

I offer a few different services, so have a look around, and feel free to message me for commissions, collaborations, or for more information. If you'd like to know more about me, find my bio and resume in the "About" section!   

Cinematic Music

I love telling stories through music, and that’s why I love composing cinematic music, because that’s what it’s all about!  I write music for films, animations, ads, commercials, music videos, and more.  A great cinematic score blends in with all of the other elements in a film but makes a strong subliminal impact; you'd definitely notice if it wasn't there!

By the way, my all-time favorite composer is Hans Zimmer!  Enjoy my sample projects below.

A Promising Game

For this short film, I composed the entire musical score.  

I love creating grand orchestral pieces with emotive string sections and epic percussion parts, so my favorite song to score was the final track that starts with a single piano note at 15:34.

Chingo Bling-Puro Pari

I used to listen to some of Chingo Bling's parody tracks when I was in middle school, so scoring the intro music for his music video was a blast (0.02-1.02. 

The sound I was going for was retro, action-style, with a comical feel.  I also mixed in a bit of a chiptune cumbia/ quebradita beat towards the end of the track to transition into Chingo Bling's song.

Warning: This video contains explicit language.

Tia Gold-Lonely On Christmas

For Tia' Gold's music video, I created the little tune that plays during the introduction, which is meant to resemble the big-band-esque intro theme of a late night comedy show (0.04-0.25)

Mo​et & Chandon-Celebrating Motherhood

This project was an entry for the Moët & Chandom Film Festival.  I created the entire music track for this video.

Papalote Children's Museum-IMAX Ad

In 2016, the Papalote Museo Del Niño (Papalote Children's Museum), located inside of the Fundidora Park in Monterrey, Mexico, premiered their giant Megapantalla IMAX theatre.  This ad was commissioned to promote the premiere of the IMAX theatre, for which I composed and produced the music.

TESTIMONIALS

"Fernando is one of the most versatile and creative musicians I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with on past projects. When I was developing my film A Promising Game, it was imperative to me that I find a composer that could really produce an emotive, moving composition for the story. Oftentimes, I have found composers that are more digital, “trial and error” artists - sometimes with a very sparse understanding of the foundation of music. That is the very opposite of who Fernando is. He’s a naturalist, he understands the core of music, and he’s an extraordinary collaborator. I would say that our film leans on the movement of his notes."

"Absolutely phenomenal and talented composer! Worked closely with Fernando on my recent film project. We clicked immediately on our favorite musical composers and the overall approach to the project. You can clearly see a strategic and creative approach to his scoring and the amount of passion involved. Highly recommended! Very intuitive and experimental in his approach to creating scores!"
