Quantcast
A HOLLYWOOD SIGNING AT CAPITOL

Capitol Music Group has brought in Twentieth Century Fox’s Anton Monsted to be the company’s chief liaison to the film and television communities and oversee soundtracks.

Monsted, a music supervisor and SVP at Fox, assumes the newly created role of Executive Vice President of Soundtracks and A&R, reporting to CMG President Ashley Newton.

“We have finally found the ideal creative executive to represent us in this realm,” Newton said. “Anton brings with him taste, expertise and strong relationships as well as an impressive pedigree of success.”

Monsted said, “We have an opportunity to build the premier home for filmmakers, and their projects, where strong music storytelling walks hand-in-hand with the creation of great soundtrack releases. The audience for music-driven projects crosses borders and culture; Capitol has the artists, the infrastructure, and the vision to meet the appetite of this audience.”

In a career that started with Baz Luhrmann on 1996’s William Shakespeare's Romeo+Juliet, Monsted most recently was a driving force behind the music of The Greatest Showman. He supervised its music from its early development, workshops, pre-production, rehearsals, songwriting and production through to delivery, working closely with its filmmakers, songwriters, cast and music producers. He also oversaw the soundtrack album for Fox.

Prior to joining Fox in 2013, Monsted worked on Luhrmann's music-heavy films Moulin RougeAustralia and The Great Gatsby.
