Schiller – Once Upon a Time
“This is my favorite tracks of my latest album ‘Future’. I wrote it while I was driving from Joshua Tree Park to Los Angeles, the melody just happened to place itself into my head. I went straight into the studio and recorded the song. The video was shot in Berlin a couple of weeks afterwards. We used handcrafted computer–animations which we projected onto our beautiful actress Alina.” – Schiller
‘Future’ is an appropriate title for this innovative masterpiece by one of Electronic Music’s most fascinating artists, Schiller. 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.
To create this new album, Schiller embarked on one of his most fascinating trips of musical and spiritual discovery. While traveling back and forth between the pulsing metropolis of Los Angeles and the infinite openness of the Mojave Desert, Schiller was inspired to create a “gravity free” album by matching his epic instrumental tracks with impressive and often surprising guest vocalists. Featured artists include Kéta, Emma Hewitt, Tawgs Salter, Sheppard Solomon, along with Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia. With their dedication and passion, they have become an integral part of the musical expedition of ‘Future.’
Schiller’s ‘Future’ is available for physical purchase at music retailers nationwide, on Amazon, and in the OK!Good Records Shop. ‘Future’ is available for digital purchase on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Bandcamp. It is also available to stream on all major streaming platforms including Spotify.
