Dictionary Terms Explained
- Musical artist
Deuter is an internationally acclaimed musician and composer who’s recorded and released over 50 albums in his career so far. He specialises in creating New Age music, combining his love for acoustic and electronic instruments with the wonderful sounds of nature and ethnic influences.
Deuter was born in Germany and taught himself to play the guitar, flute and harmonica. Although he always loved music, it wasn’t until he was involved in a near fatal car crash in his early 20s that he finally decided his true vocation in life was to work as a musician. As a result, his first album, D, was released in 1971 and he’s gone on to produce a wide variety of much-loved albums.
Many of Deuter’s early recordings are meditative and contemplative and reflect elements of Deuter’s own spiritual search. He was one of the first musicians to successfully blend together Eastern and Western traditions and much of his music is inspiring, uplifting and full of spirit.
Since his first album in 1971, Deuter has continued to be passionately involved in creating and composing music, bringing out at least one album almost every year since, and his wonderful repertoire is enjoyed by people worldwide.

The nine pieces are all soft and gentle, with most of the melody being played by woodwind, with various other instruments in the background. Some items such as Morning Birds use real birdsong which weaves its way around the haunting melody.
The music is ideal for relaxation and for background use. Therapists and healers will also find it invaluable for relaxing their clients during treatment sessions.
