Pinar Toprak is one of the most refreshing voices in music composition today with a diverse body of work spanning across film, television, and video games. She has composed for major superhero sagas such as Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, DC’s Stargirl on The CW, and SY-FY’s Superman prequel series Krypton. She also scored HBO’s six-part docuseries McMillion$, which premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination. In addition, she has written music for Epic Games’ massively popular Fortnite. Away from the big screen, Toprak crafted the new main theme for Walt Disney World’s iconic EPCOT theme park, and wrote music for Christina Aguilera’s 2019 Xperience show in Las Vegas.

Toprak was the recipient of the 2019 ASCAP Shirley Walker Award and also won the 2019 IFMCA (International Film Music Critics Association) Award for “Best Original Score for a Documentary Film” forThe Tides of Fate. She had previously won two other IFMCA Awards for her work on The Wind Gods and The Lightkeepers, which was on the Academy Award shortlist for “Best Original Score” in 2011.
