Adelbert von Deyen is a relatively obscure electronic artist whose style is very similar to the famed Klaus Schulze, even down to the album covers (both artists use paintings by surrealist painter Urs Amann for the album covers). Rightfully so, he claims Schulze as his main influence. His career lasted from the 1978 to the early to 1987. His first album, Sternzeit, is perhaps his most famous Schulze-like release. On later albums, like Eclipse, there was a definite spacey, Pink Floyd feeling present throughout. On this album, he even decided to incorporate vocals. Today, von Deyen no longer records and instead has become a painter.
