Moog Modular Interview - who is this early adopter ?

Post by dante »

Restoring cassette tapes from the 80's, I stumbled across a 20 minute interview but with no intro - so I have no idea who either the interviewer or interviewees are. I suspect the latter is a member of a band that used a Moog Modular in the early 70's, as he keeps referring to '..they had one before we did..' eg Mick Jagger, Tangerine Dream etc.

https://soundcloud.com/hitfoundry/inter ... 2017-96khz this is a 2 minute extract.

I would really like to know who the interviewee is if anyone can recognise him or otherwise work it out.

Hmm... Could it be Klaus Schulze? From the extract, at least it sounds like the interviewee had about the same exaggerated use of the phrase "you know", a similar dialect, he was briefly a member of Tangerine dream and bought a moog modular from Florian Fricke (Tangerine dream had their own modular earlier).

Just a hunch i had.

Here's another interview for comparison https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Agc2gcHQQ0M
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Bob Moog, in his exceptionally understated manner, once said that he was merely an engineer, a toolmaker whose work only gained significance in the hands of musicians. In this gracious self-assessment he acknowledged the debt that he owed to musicians, and unintentionally, the risk of doing so in the first place. For musicians can be a famously unpredictable bunch.

Not so much debt as collaboration I think. Switched on Bach was a 3 way collaboration in that sense - Bach, Carlos and Moog.
