The German electronic music pioneer Dieter Moebius, who was a founding member of the influential groups Cluster and Harmonia, has died at the age of 71. Aside from his work alongside alongside Conrad Schnitzler and Hans-Joachim Roedelius in Kluster (and then Cluster when Schnitzler left) and Michael Rother from Neu! in Harmonia, Moebius also collaborated with Brian Eno and Conny Plank and released several solo albums, such as last year’s “Nidemonex”.
