“My name is Christopher von Deylen – and I am Schiller.” At some point during every Schiller concert, von Deylen speaks these ten words and the crowd goes wild. With over 650,000 albums sold since 1998 (and counting) and multiple sold out live tours, Schiller’s success continues to grow. Collaborating with well-known artists such as Colbie Caillat, Sarah Brightman, Lang Lang, Nadia Ali, Lenka, and more, Schiller’s releases have been celebrated by fans all over the world. The musician, composer, and producer’s ethereal “global pop”, as fans and the press have coined the style, gives the listener a feeling of floating in a dream world. Inspired by electronic classics like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre, von Deylen is known for creating visionary sounds that are way ahead of their time. As described by musician/composer Mike Oldfield, “[He creates] music that moves one really deep inside.” Based on the reception von Deylen’s compositions have gotten so far, Schiller’s acclaim will surely continue to rise.
Listeners are sure to be moved by Schiller’s new emotional electronic-pop album, Future, which has been met with critical acclaim as it went straight to the top of the German Pop Album Charts marking his fifth #1 album in his home country.‘Future’ is an appropriate title for this innovative masterpiece by one of Electronic Music’s most fascinating artists. Mixing intoxicating and exciting sounds with timeless intensity, each song has its own cinematic quality to experience. Schiller describes the album as a movie soundtrack, taking listeners on a sonic-journey through moods, feelings, and landscapes. ‘Future’ is the ideal album to escape from everyday life and immerse oneself in dreams of the “future.” Dreamscape melodies and artful arrangements create an extraordinary experience with compositions of epic power and breathtaking fragility. “Time flies so fast, and the future is so precious, whether it is the future as a feeling of life or whether we feel our own grit… I would be happy if ‘Future’ can provide the soundtrack for this journey,” says Schiller.
