Swiss-born electro-ambient music giant Dieter Moebius passed away on Monday at the age of 71. He was one of the pioneers of the 1960s German “Krautrock“ scene that incorporated synthesizers and other electronic instruments into rock music. Born in St. Gallen in 1944, Moebius studied classical music as a child. His mother was a classical pianist.

He left Switzerland to study art in Brussels and then relocated to Berlin.
