MOONLAKE is the thirty-fifth solo album by Klaus Schulze, originally released on 04 October 2005. The title is not related to former works MOONDAWN or Crystal Lake, but stems from the Swiss lake "Mondsee".
Recording Date: End of 2004 to early 2005, 05 November 2003 (live tracks)
Recording site(s): Hambühren, Poznan (Poland)
Producer(s): Klaus Schulze
Composer(s): Klaus Schulze
Musician(s): Klaus Schulze, Thomas Kagermann (violin, vocals)
The tracks are partly studio recordings, partly of live origin from a performance in Poznan (Poland) on 05 November 2003. Although the booklet states Same Thoughts Lion and Mephisto are the remastered live tracks, it is in fact Mephisto and the second half of Playmate in Paradise that are.
The concert in Poland was for the opening of the "Stary Browar", some kind of mall in Poznan. Schulze's music accompanied a huge light show by Gert Hof.
MOONLAKE is dedicated to Robert Moog, who died in 2005.
