Klaus Schulze died on April 26th, 2022, at the age of 74 after a long illness, but nevertheless suddenly and unexpectedly. One of the most influential and important composers of electronic music leaves us - a man of conviction and exceptional artist. His always cheerful nature, his innovative spirit, and his impressive body of work remain indelibly rooted in our memories.

Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the remake of the classic film 'Dune', desert fever had broken out again in Klaus Schulze. "I needed more of that 'Spice,'" Schulze recounts. "From there I felt completely unleashed and just played and played… at the end of that second private ‘Dune‘ journey I realized: ‘Deus Arrakis‘ became another salute to Frank Herbert and to that great gift of life in general.“ Since his beginnings in bands like 'Tangerine Dream' and 'Ash Ra Tempel' or in his over 50 solo albums from 'Irrlicht' to Mirage', 'X' and 'Dune' to 'Farscape', 'Kontinuum', 'Silhouettes' and now 'Deus Arrakis', in his productions under the pseudonym 'Richard Wahnfried' or the numerous film scores and collaborations with artists like Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Rainer Bloss, Lisa Gerrard or most recently Hans Zimmer: Klaus Schulze has always remained true to his unmistakable way of creating music and yet always remained open to the new, the innovative, the experimental.
