From Music Radar:

Klaus Schulze, German electronic music pioneer, has died aged 74
German electronic music pioneer Klaus Schulze has died at the age of 74. Briefly a member of Tangerine Dream and Krautrock outfits Ash Ra Tempel and The Cosmic Jokers, he also operated under the alias Richard Wahnfried.

Schulze’s solo career saw him release more than 50 albums across five decades, as he explored ambient and techno and soundtracked a number of films. His 1979 record, Dune, saw him take inspiration from Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel of the same name, and he went on to collaborate with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack for the 2021 film adaptation.

A new album, Deus Arrakis, was in the works, and was said to be a continuation of his recent work with Zimmer.

Despite being tagged as an electronic artist, Schulze was known for using both synth and acoustic sounds in his compositions. He also experimented with sampling for a time.

One of the greats.  74 is a bit early to go.  Here is 10 minutes from a live concert:

And here is a whole show (1:46:00) with him and Lisa Gerard
