In the early 1970s, the journalist and composer Walter Bachauer played with experimental
fusion group Between, and after founding the Meta Music Festival, began working for RIAS
Berlin. 1981’s Luna Africana was the first electronic album he issued as Clara Mondshine;
produced by early Tangerine Dreamer, Klaus Schulze, it’s delightfully lo-fi analogue with a
very Berlin feel, the ‘motorik’ style most evident on tracks like ‘Landung Bei Vollmond
(Landing On The Moon),’ while ‘Raga Des Aufgehenden Planeten (Raga Of The Rising
Planet)’ and ‘Amazonenharfe (Harp Of The Amazons)’ add world music elements to the
skeletal electronics. Fans of Kraftwerk, Cluster and the Eno/Harmonia collaborations need to
get stuck into this obscure gem, a killer piece of Krautrock’s emerging electronic puzzle.
