'Before You Judge, Experience Iran Yourself': Exclusive Interview with Schiller's Christopher von Deylen

Finance Desk

Schiller, the German electronic music band, in December 2017 became the first major western electronic music group to perform in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, nearly four decades ago.
They performed for five straight nights in Tehran starting Dec. 11 at the Interior Ministry’s Auditorium, with a capacity of 3,000 people, and returned for three more concerts on March 4-6.
Before their latest concert, Financial Tribune sat down with Christopher von Deylen who founded the band in 1998 and has since sold more than seven million albums, for an exclusive interview.
The musician spoke of the “energy” that seems to be at the center of what he does, be it on stage or in the studio, his Berlin-Tehran treat for his eager listeners in the metropolis, and Iran’s image outside the country.
He said he had fun performing in Iran that is “like nowhere else” because the atmosphere is so warm and welcoming.
