Biography
Adrian von Ziegler is a Swiss composer of various styles and was born on the 25th December 1989.
After his first musical experience of being the drummer in a local Psychodelic 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 drummer he left and bought his first guitar.
Throughout the y
ears 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 early 2010 his level of recognition rised 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.
After releasing 5 albums only in 2010/2011 Adrian von Ziegler's ideas for future albums are far from gone but more alive than ever before. The exceptional team work together with Carina Grimm completes his music perfectly and reaches height after height with every new release.

  6. First of all, i would like to tell a little about myself, my name's Erica Nascimento, and me and my boyfriend, Caue Marcovich live in Brasil. He told me that he’ve send you a message, so i though i could give it a try...
    I love to draw, i used to post my drawings in dvA and one day, searching for some images i've found VikkiGothAngel’s dvA, i felt in love for that images, specially "Angel of Sorrow" and “Beyond Me”, i maybe could be wrong but i knew exactly what it means, those images became one of my favorites.
    A few months after that, my boyfriend send me a playlist on youtube called "Celtic Music", it was also perfect, the harmony between the images and the songs were perfect, and i couldn't stop listening to it. After a while, my boyfriend told me a little bit more about Adrian Von Ziegler, and also that a girl makes his images, looking the albuns i felt like i've already seem them . i thought: -ah! maybe she has dvA and i can subscribe ^^. And then, i frozen, she was the same girl that creates "Angel of Sorrow". I felt like someday i would like to met or know a little bit more about Carina, she became my inspiration and her feelings are exactlly the same that i have, that we have.
    Some days after, my boyfriend finally told me that those song inspired him to start being a real composer for games, that are our passion. i totally support him. i want to create the game art... for now we're amateurs, but somehow i have hope that we'll get there together.
    Yesterday was my birthday, I entered on youtube, and I saw Adrian Von Ziegler’s latest video. That was the best gift i getI got so glad that she appeared on your video and the connection between you two is something that gives me hope to make my art, that gives me hope to continue making the art that my heart feels . And I thank this to you guys to make me feel SO SPEACIAL , that was the greatest present I’ve won!!!

    I would like you guys to know how thankfull I’m about that
    Thanks for making me and my boyfriend’s hope,
    thanks for your attention
    From a big fan,
    Acire

  10. Adrian, this is the first time I am listening to celtic music and your compositions are great. I started liking celtic after listening to them. I wanted to know that since world music is one of your specializations, have you ever experimented with fusion music.I would have loved if you composed a fusion of celtic and any of the genres of Indian music.

  18. I was wondering if i could use some of your music for a VN (or Visual Novel)? It would be non profit and i would credit the music to the composer. Just a Thought though.

  23. It's a God's gift to us that He sent Adrian von Ziegler to us. Specifically speaking, pay attention to the song titled 'Spring Charm' - a celtic song. A brief pause (total silence) comes at 2:30 mins from the start of the song. What comes after 2:35mins is the ingredients for pure meditation. It has a divine touch. Just go for it
