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.
