Cécile Schott was born in France and began making music under the name 'Colleen' in 2001, after a friend gave her a CD-R with the ACID Pro music production software contained within. Samples were a common part of her early work and in summer 2003 the debut album Everyone Alive Wants Answers was released. It was notable for its heavy use of looped samples, which were taken from records in her collection and heavily modified. The album was critically well-received and drew enough attention to warrant touring. During live shows, Schott would replicate the sounds from the album using acoustic instruments played through pedals as she thought the idea of using a laptop live was uninspiring.

This approach using live physical instruments led to the 2005 follow-up , The Golden Morning Breaks. This album was something of a departure from the sampled setting of her debut and consisted almost entirely of natural, non-synthetic sounds, an approach Schott has stated in interviews that she prefers.

Her most recent release was part of the Staalplaat label's series of live performances, called Mort Aux Vaches (meaning 'Death to Cows'). It was released on January 25, 2006.

"Colleen Et Les Boites A Musique" hits the shops on October 2nd 2006, and is comprised of 14 short pieces created using only music boxes, originally commissioned by France Culture's Atelier De Création Radiophonique.

In May 2007 dancer and choreographer Perrine Valli performed Série, a production with an original score composed by Schott - her first foray into dance.

Les Ondes Silencieuses ('The Still Waters'), Colleen's third full-length album, was released on May 21, 2007. A slight evolution in sound was again heard on the album, as Schott adopted a more free-form approach in place of the use of loops that were so apparent in much of her prior output.

來自法國的Cécile Schott,她的音樂美得好純粹,我想不論喜歡什麽類型音樂的人,聽到她的音樂都會承認它很美。純淨得清澈見底,這是世界上最美的水域。Colleen用各種古典音樂的元素,以她寂靜迷人的大提琴,編織著這純淨水面上一波漣漪,縹緲、幽遠、夢幻,仿佛來自天籟的聲音。
