Profile
Dieter Moebius (born 16 January 1944 in St. Gallen, Switzerland, died 20 July 2015) was a German electronic musician. From his early work with the krautrock band Cluster to his later solo recordings, Dieter Moebius remained one of the prolific voices in contemporary electronic music. In 1969 he was befriended by Conrad Schnitzler and invited him to join Kluster, a band Schnitzler was forming with Hans Joachim Roedelius. The trio released their debut LP Klopfzeichen in 1970; in the wake of their third album, 1971's Eruption, Schnitzler exited to pursue a solo career, and Moebius and Roedelius continued on as a duo, modifying the name to Cluster. They later worked with Brian Eno on some of the seminal recordings of what became "ambient" music.
