3 stars Luna Africana is the first album of Clara Mondshine signed on Klaus Schulze's label "Innovative Communication" (Wahnfried, Software...). With conventional ingredients ever used by Schulze in his kosmsiche synthesised suites, Luna Mondshine draws an imaginative, picturesque spacious adventure through static drones, synth grooves and hypno repetitive abstract pulses. The album starts with textural dark buzzing drone waves. After an haunted-nocturnal introduction, the follow up fails to keep the attention of the listener. It delives floating synth frequences and perpetual drum machine effects. The ambience has a certain charm and can be compared with the synthesized cosmic symphonies of Berlin's electronic pionniers. However It admits more relationships with the lo-fi spacy atmospheric exercices we can hear on Georges Garside, Colin Potter's early tapes. Without surprises, Luna Africana stands as a pleasant musical experience, providing a few sonic magnetic moments. Next to Robert Schröder solo efforts, Clara Mondshine figures Among the best projects published on Innovatice Communication.
