Description"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, Schillers worldwide acclaim continues to grow. Schillers 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.
2011 proved to be a successful year for the German musician, composer, and producer, as his 6th studio album, Breathless, was released in the US, followed by a series of sold out live shows throughout Europe and Russia. Now in 2012, we look back on Schillers accomplishments through the years with his newest release, Timeline: The Very Best of 1998-2011. The album, set to be released in the states on March 13, chronicles the best and most important songs of Schillers career, compiling noteworthy tracks from prior albums such as Zeitgeist, Voyage, Day and Night, and Desire. Guest artists include Nadia Ali, Colbie Caillat, Chinese pianist Lang Lang, Indonesian-French artist Anggun, and more.
