Originally released in 1976, Moondawn is an early highlight of Schulzes voluminous discography, regarded by many as among his best work. Released one year before his breakthrough album, Mirage, this album marked the first usage of the Moog synthesizer in a way that would establish Schulze firmly in his career as a solo keyboardist.
Klaus Schulze first attracted attention as a member of the German progressive rock band, Tangerine Dream. Following the release of their debut LP, Electronic Meditation, he departed for a solo career. Klaus' recorded work typically features extended pieces sometimes filling an entire album built around computer-generated synthesizers and other specially programmed electronic effects. Klaus Schulze remains a cult figure in the United States, where the bulk of his prolific output has until now been available only through the import bins. He is widely considered an avant-garde mainstay as well as a founding father of both the new-age space music and electronica genres.
