Neil Denny talks to musician and naturalist Bernie Krause in Little Atoms at 7pm. A former member of seminal folk band The Weavers, in which he replaced Pete Seeger as guitarist, Krause was also a pioneer of electronic music, studying at Mills College under Stockhausen and Oliveros. As part of the duo Beaver & Krause, he worked on the soundtracks of many films, including Apocalypse Now, Rosemary’s Baby and Performance. For more than forty years Krause has travelled the world recording and archiving the sounds of creatures and environments large and small. He has recorded more than fifteen thousand species and four thousand hours of soundscapes, over half of which no longer exist due to encroaching noise and human activity.
