Advanced electronic music
The Die Stadt project was started by Antonio Montilla in 2008, with the intention of contributing to the local avant-garde and experimental electronic music scene. From the very beginning, Die Stadt was defined as an open project, looking for collaborations with different artists, both musicians and from different artistic disciplines. The idea is to put electronic music into environments and concepts where its presence is not usual. Following this pattern, Die Stadt has played its music in bookstores, art galleries and even the prestigious MIMMA (Interactive Museum of Music in Málaga).
Die Stadt’s electronic soundscapes are optimal for use in:
- Short films and audiovisual soundtrack.
- Book-trailers sound setting.
- Videogames and apps soundtrack.
- Book soundtrack.
- Art instalations sound setting.
- Radio jingles.
Die Stadt specializes in electronic ambient, downtempo and cinematic music, with special attention to the composition of textures and sound environments, as well as sound design and integration into multimedia projects.
In 2018 the theme ‘Praha’ by Die Stadt was awarded as finalist of the I Synthetic Generation Awards, a price awarded by a jury of prestigious figures in the Spanish electronic music scene.
In 2019 the Cantillana City Council and the Department of Culture and Tourism of Cantillana (Seville, Spain) recognized Die Stadt for its “valuable contribution to the dissemination of Cantillana’s Historical Heritage with the artistic project ‘Inside the Mosaic’“, a multimedia project (consisting on music and a website) for the dissemination of knowledge about the so called ‘Dolphin Mosaic’, a mosaic of the Roman Era found in this town in 2018.
