SCHILLER is one of Germany’s leading electronic artists. The multi-Gold and Platinum-awarded project has been created by electronic musician, producer and composer Christopher von Deylen in the tradition of teutonic sound-pioneers. Over the last years the Echo-Award winner and Grammy-Nominee performed more than 100 sold-out concerts – highly acclaimed by the audience and media. Schiller’s albums feature many well-known German and international guest vocalists and musicians such as Colbie Caillat, Lang Lang, Sarah Brightman, Moya Brennan, Kim Sanders, Peter Heppner, Mike Oldfield, Xavier Naidoo, Mila Mar and Tarja Turunen (formerly of Nightwish).
On his live tours, Christopher von Deylen enhances his music with breathtaking visual performances. In August 2006, Schiller appeared as a special guest at the final concert of Depeche Mode’s ‘Playing the Angel Tour’ in Athens.
“My name is Christopher von Deylen – and I am Schiller.” It doesn’t take more than ten words. The fans cheer. At some point, roughly in the middle of every Schiller concert, these ten words are spoken. The man stating them smiles briefly at the audience, then immerses himself again in his unusual sound-worlds where he compresses into music people’s dreams and hopes, the atmospheres of our time, yes the vibrations of the world. Inspired by electro classics like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre, von Deylen creates visionary sounds that are way ahead of their time, because, with longing, they have absorbed past and present. New electronic music, enthusiastically celebrated by fans and the press as “Global Pop.” “Music that moves one really deep inside,” is what Mike Oldfield said about von Deylen’s compositions.
The musician, composer and producer didn’t choose the name Schiller by accident. In 1998, the single “Glockenspiel” was on the table, a musical adaptation. Christopher von Deylen had just read “Die Glocke” (“The Bell”) by Friedrich Schiller and from now on released his albums under the poet’s name. Success and PrizesSchiller’s “Glockenspiel” stormed the charts, the ensuing albums “Zeitgeist,” “Weltreise (Voyage)” “Leben (Life),” “Tag und Nacht (day & night)”, “Sehnsucht (desire)” and “Atemlos (Breathless)”were released in more than 26 countries and celebrated major successes.
Schiller was awarded 7 gold records, 2 gold DVDs, 2 platinum records, received the Echo-Award®, the DVDChampion Award for best music DVD, the Opus Award for best sound design as well as several Grammy nominations.
