Dieter Moebius (16 January 1944 – 20 July 2015) was a German/Swiss experimental/krautrock/ambient/electronic musician.

Moebius studied art in Brussels and Berlin and it was there that he met Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream). They founded Kluster in 1969. After the departure of Schnitzler, they changed their name to Cluster. Later Moebius and Roedelius founded the band Harmonia with Michael Rother (Neu!), a fellow Brian Eno collaborator.

Dieter Moebius was involved in numerous projects with such musicians as Conny Plank and Mandani Neumeier (Guru Guru).
