The Wizard Hut, founded in 2016 by the composer Ramon Polo, is a team of composers, arrangers and bands who love and can't live without writing, performing and listening to music. Our expertise includes scoring music for films, tv-movies, commercials, documentaries, videogames, etc. Thanks to our collaborators we offer quality and versatility in a wide range of styles. We’re not PR, managers nor representatives; our aim is just to write, record and deliver genuine music meeting the most demanding quality requirements.

A team of composers. One single voice. Our motto reflects the way we work: from the beginning until the end you will speak to one single person, a single point of contact, making the work of our collaborators transparent to you. Thanks to the structure of our company we're able to provide the best musical experience to the final public.
During the last years the way of approaching the music in an audiovisual project has changed. Extreme specialization and high quality content have become the standard for most producers around the globe. Composers work together to fit the project needs. This includes creativity, expertise, budget, deadlines. How do they do that?
Each project has its own requirements. They are related to creativity, style, budget, deadlines, etc. A music house works with composers with different musical background and takes care of arranging the musical production, such as locating the suitable singers and performers and leading the recording and mixing sessions. One person is in charge of everything, from the beginning until the end, and that's a key fact to guarantee the team work keeps transparent to the client.
Music houses are used to offer music supervision services. This may include composer and artist management. Producers and directors want the music that suits their creative and budget requirements. The music supervisor has the resources needed to achieve this objective.

In case a composer could say what he had to say in words, don't bother oneself to say it through a musical composition.
There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.
Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.
Even if, in one or other of them, I had a particular word or words in mind, I would not tell anyone, because the same word means different things to different people. Only the songs say the same thing, arouse the same feeling, in everyone - a feeling that can't be expressed in words.
I sit down to the piano regularly at nine-o'clock in the morning and Mesdames les Muses have learned to be on time for that rendezvous.
There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
There is no better deliverance from the world than through art; and a man can form no surer bond with it than through art.
It's not your painting anymore. It stopped being your painting the moment that you finished it.
I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all. If there's one thing that's dangerous for an artist, it's precisely this question of total freedom, waiting for inspiration and all the rest of it.
Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything.
Another unsettling element in modern art is that common symptom of immaturity, the dread of doing what has been done before.
Art forms of the past were really considered elitist. Bach did not compose for the masses, neither did Beethoven. It was always for patrons, aristocrats, and royalty. Now we have a sort of democratic version of that, which is to say that the audience is so splintered in its interests.
I believe that if it were left to artists to choose their own labels, most would choose none.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Let each man exercise the art he knows.
Art does not exist only to entertain, but also to challenge one to think, to provoke, even to disturb, in a constant search for truth.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.
Brass bands are all very well in their place - outdoors and several miles away.
Music is the only language in which you cannot say a mean or sarcastic thing.
If you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. You begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience.
I hate music, especially when it's played.
My music is best understood by children and animals.
Military justice is to justice what military music is to music.
The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, "Is there a meaning to music?" My answer would be, "Yes". And "Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?" My answer to that would be, "No".
Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.
There is only one admirable form of the imagination: the imagination that is so intense that it creates a new reality, that it makes things happen.
Everything you can imagine is real.
There is nothing more dreadful than imagination without taste.
