"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. Schiller’s ethereal “global pop”, as his fans and the press have coined the style, gives the listener a feeling of floating in a dream world. Inspired by electronic classics such as Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, and Jean-Michel Jarre, von Deylen is known for creating visionary sounds that are way ahead of their time.
"Timeline: The Very Best of 1998-2011" looks back on Schiller’s accomplishments through the years as it chronicles the best and most important songs of Schiller’s career…
Live Erleben is the first live album from German electronical musician, composer and producer Christopher von Deylen under his Schiller alias. As with Sehnsucht Live, the performances on Live Erleben often add a little dramatic flair to their studio-album counterparts, thought the mood remains relaxing. The highlights here tend to feature vocal collaborations, as heard on “Delicately Yours” and “Distance” (both with Kim Sanders), “The Smile” (with Sarah Brightman), and “I’ve Seen It All” (with Maya Saban), and plenty of in-rhythm handclaps from the audience. The album achieved gold status in Germany in 2016.
Featuring some of Schiller’s most restrained, stripped-down production output, the largely dreamlike "Sehnsucht" is formatted like his other studio albums, with vocal and instrumental tracks both part of the makeup. However, several tracks are ambient in the truest sense, consisting strictly of atmospheric wash and no beats. The album features collaboration with several established artists like Xavier Naidoo, Jaël, Kim Sanders, and Klaus Schulze among others.
2009 UK 5-CD album set comprised of the best selling and critically acclaimed album releases 'Nuff Said', 'To Love Somebody', 'Black Gold', 'It Is Finished' and 'Nina Simone And Piano!', each album is housed in a mini LP-style card picture sleeve with the complete set presented in a card slipcase.
Schiller is the main project of Christopher von Deylen, a German electronic music composer who produces music which can be considered trance and ambient. Since he himself does not sing on his tracks, he often collaborates with other famous singers in the electronic genre, such as Peter Heppner, Kim Sanders, Maya Saban, miLù, Sarah Brightman, Moya Brennan, or Alexander Veljanov, and musicians like Mike Oldfield. The name of the band is taken from one of von Deylen's heroes, Friedrich Schiller.
