Bernie Krause “Moog Bench Test”

Bernie Krause “Moog Bench Test”


Bernie Krause shares memories of how Bob Moog did “bench tests” of his synthesizers.

Krause is an American bioacoustician. He coined the term, “biophony” (natural-sound soundscapes), to contrast with “anthrophony” (man-made soundscapes).

As a musician, he was a member of The Weavers and was one of the first players of the Moog Synthesizer in the 1960s. He formed Beaver & Krause with fellow synthesist Paul Beaver (who had played the instrument on a Monkees recording, “Star Collector”), to make electronic music featuring the Moog and other instruments.
