Klaus Schulze (born August 4, 1947 in Berlin, Germany) is a German electronic art music composer and musician. He has alsoused the aliasRichard Wahnfried. He was briefly a member of the electronic band Tangerine Dream as well as cofounding AshRa Tempel before a pioneeringand prolific solo career of 40+ albums (totalling 110+ CDs) in 30+ years.

In 1969, Klaus Schulze was the drummer of one of the early incarnations of Tangerine Dream for their debut album ElectronicMeditation. In1970 he left this group to form Ash Ra Tempel with Manuel Göttsching. In 1971, he chose again to leave a newly-formed group after only onealbum, this time to mount a solo career.

In 1972, Schulze released his debut album Irrlicht with organ and a recording of an orchestra filtered almost beyondrecognition. Despite thelack of synthesizers, this proto-ambient work is regarded as a milestone in electronic music. The followup, Cyborg, was similar but added theEMS Synthi A synthesizer. Some highlights of his early career are Moondawn (1976),Mirage (1977) and Dune (1979). He often took aspects ofGerman culture and history as a starting point in his compositions,particularly on his album “X” (the title signifying it was his tenth album) in1978 which was subtitled ‘Six Musical Biographies,’including such notables as Ludwig II of Bavaria, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Wilhelm FriedemannBach. « hide
