He continued his musical studies at the Joaquín Rodrigo Upper Conservatory, where he got a degree in Music Composition. This is when his career began to focus on the composition of music for media, receiving commissions from various parts of the country and, later, beyond its borders.
Kilian participated in the film scoring workshop during the Cordoba International Film Music Festival, with lecturers such as Marco Beltrami, Oscar® winner Rachel Portman, Peter Bernstein and Joseph Trapanese, among others.

He also worked as a music teacher in Madrid’s ORSON THE KID film school for kids, where one of the short films won first prize at the International Children’s Film Festival of Madrid.
