Adelbert Von Deyen

Real Name:
Adelbert von Deyen
Adelbert Von Deyen was an electronic music composer and artist based in Berlin. He began working on his music in sessions with longtime friend Dieter Schütz in the 1970s. He was signed to Sky Records which released his first album "Sternzeit" (German for Stardate) in 1978. Sky Records released a total of nine Von Deyen albums between 1978 and 1987, eight solo albums and one collaboration with Schütz, "Inventions" (1983).

In 1991 Von Deyen, Schütz, and Ulla Witt formed the group Deja Vue, recording the album "Nightflight". Schütz's sudden death in September of that year caused the project to be shelved and Von Deyen put his music career on hold, concentrating on landscape painting instead.

In 1992 Von Deyen digitally remastered some of his works for Sky Records. The remastered version of "Atmosphere" (originally releasd as an LP in 1980) was released on CD that year as was a compilation album, "Sunset - The Best of Adelbert Von Deyen".

In 2003 Von Deyen launched his own record label and finally released the long-shelved "Nightflight" album. After receiving a synthesizer as a gift he resumed his own solo career, releasing "Painted Black" (2006) and "Roseg@rden" (2007).

Adelbert von Deyen passed away 13 February 2018.

Adelberg von Deyen is deceptively simple, but achieves on tracks like Moonrise a shimmering serene beauty with uncluttered analog sounds. of course some of it sounds dated but its part of the attraction.

Though "Atmosphere" has a great cover art and some really impressive moments, along with the pink-floydian "Eclipse" LP!

The most un-innovative and untalented person in the history of electronic progressive music. Unbeliveably narrow-minded, childishly kitschy, bloody amatheur. Very unrecommended to waste your time with any of his releases! You better discover the great personalities of the genre!
