Adrian von Ziegler e ARTe Cluster:
Adrian ha collaborato con il suo brano “Martyrium” nel progetto ARTe Cluster per una esibizione in Inghilterra, in occasione del Meeting OUCH UK, in novembre 2012. L’artista si è confrontato per la prima volta con il tema “Cluster Headache – Cefalea a grappolo”, ha visto l’importanza del progetto ARTe Cluster e ha messo a disposizione la sua musica per il progetto ARTe Cluster. Siamo onorati di avere il supporto di un’artista così bravo, che con la sua magnifica musica accompagnerà Al.Ce. Cluster in questo e in altri futuri progetti.

Adrian von Ziegler is a Swiss composer of various styles, book author and philologist by passion (not by official degree) and was born on the 25th December 1989.

After his first musical experience of being the drummer in a local Rock Band at age 15/16 he started to develop the urge to compose his own music. Because that wasn't possible for him in the current band and in the position of a drummerhe left and bought his first guitar.

Throughout the years 2007-2009 he recorded countless demo songs under the artist name "Indigo" in which the guitar would get replaced more and more by the keyboard and orchestral arrangements. In 2008 his music got out into the world for the first time as he set up a Myspace account; the total clicks of his uploaded songs never passed 10'000 though and he got fed up with the account soon. In summer 2009 he came into contact with Magix Music Maker for the first time as he was asked by friends whether he could compose the music for their amateur movie. This eventually turned out to be a breaking point in his music career because the reason why his official YouTube channel got created on 1st August 2009 was only because he wanted to upload those movie scores in order to be able to show them to his friends. It also was the point where he buried his first and only pseudonym "Indigo" and decided to use his real name thenceforth.

Through his work with Magix the orchestral elements within his songs became more and more powerful which eventually would be an important aspect of how his own style of Neoclassical Gothic Music and the orchestral Celtic Music came to life in the year 2009. In early 2010 his level of recognition rose within a short time after the songs "A Celtic Tale" and "Your dying Heart" got uploaded and the idea of releasing an own album took form for the first time. The release of his debut album "Requiem" in June 2010 would become the start of an exceptional discography in which a new full-length album would be released in a period of each a few months.

Due to the fact that his self made album covers were looking rather unprofessional he decided to search for a visual artist to take the job instead. As it turned out he didn't even have to search because the very first artist that crossed his path was Carina Grimm in August 2010 who would also become his significant other. Carina Grimm since then creates all album artworks plus several other things for him like background pictures, posters, video artworks etc.

While he released 2 albums in 2010 (namely Requiem and Lifeclock) the next year he would release 3 (Across Acheron, Wanderer and Mirror of the Night). And in 2012 he released 4 full-length albums: Mortualia, Spellbound, Starchaser and Odyssey. His 10th album was released in May 2013 and according to him he "only just began".

Adrian von Ziegler is also an author: He mentioned that he had always been writing fantasy stories and even had the interest of a major German label for one of his writings back in 2007 when he was 17 years young. Since then he focused more on music as a form of creativity but "always knew that I will write a book someday". In 2011 the first idea took form of what would become a vast fictional, and completely self-created world. This development continued steadily and by 2012 he began his work on a fantasy epic planned out as a trilogy but "more likely to become a pentalogy". He is also writing his own soundtrack to the fictional story, much like the soundtrack of the Lord of the Rings and is inventing several own languages from scratch, being a hobby philologist and etymologist as stated.
