Peter Zinovieff Day

A day celebrating the pioneering work of Dr Peter Zinovieff, co-founder of EMS London and creator of innovative electronic music from the 1960s to the present. Peter Zinovieff will be joined by special guests, who with him will contribute talks and performances encompassing Zinovieff's computer music, past, present and future. A focus of the day is also Zinovieff's current and historical musical collaborations, and the legacy of EMS' most ambitious electronic musical instrument, the Synthi 100.

The afternoon concert will feature the premiere of a newly commissioned composition for violin and computer by Peter Zinovieff and include rare musical restorations from the Zinovieff's early collaborations with Harrison Birtwistle that have not been heard in decades.

from £2.00 to £10.00
