By 1969 at the latest, Dieter Moebius was synonymous with the avant-garde electronic music scene in Germany. He and Hans-Joachim Roedelius formed Cluster, a seminal electronic/ambient duo, whilst Moebius was also a member of the so-called Krautrock supergroup Harmonia (with Michael Rother and Roedelius), as well as collaborating on various other projects with the likes of Brian Eno and Mani Neumeier from Guru Guru.
This was the last solo album that Moebius delivered to Sky Records. “Blue Moon” was released at a time when electronically created pop music was no longer perceived as exotic. It was new music, free of the ballast of the 1970s, minimalist and uncluttered. Moebius, a constant “simplifier” in the Cluster/Harmonia family, made a particular virtue of this simplicity on “Blue Moon”, resulting in eleven wonderfully measured miniatures, rhythmic, harmonic textures of exceptional aural transparency.
