Roberto Concina (3 November 1969 – 9 May 2017), better known by his stage name Robert Miles, was a Swiss-Italian record producer, composer, musician and DJ.[1]

In 1994, Miles wrote a trance/chill-out piece based on acoustic guitar chords and soft synthesizer effects, "Children", which was later developed into a dream trance song featuring a piano theme on top.

Miles died in Ibiza, Spain, on 9 May 2017 at the age of 47 after a short battle with stage 4 metastatic cancer.[2][3]
