PAN offer up a wildly ambitious LP which pairs two formidable talents in the area of electro-acoustic composition. Peter Zinovieff — here appearing in his debut release — and returning champ Lucy Railton go for the deeply meditative on RFG Inventions for Cello and Computer, showcasing a virtuosic approach to string instrumentation as well as a masterful understanding of process-based drones. Consider this a promise fulfilled on the part of 1960s synthesised music.

‘RFG Inventions for Cello and Computer’ is a steeply adventurous, highly structured and rewarding electro- acoustic collaboration between pioneering British/Russian inventor and engineer Peter Zinovieff and preeminent cellist Lucy Railton. The collaboration is notably issued as Peter Zinovieff’s first album and also becomes the follow-up to Lucy Railton’s acclaimed solo debut ‘Paradise 94’ for Modern Love.It finds Zinovieff, co-founder of London’s influential EMS Synthesizer company and owner of the world’s first home computer, using custom computer software to create and orchestrate a “soft” version of Railton’s vast instrumental vocabulary, modelled from a large series of cello improvisations inspired by objects such as an Egyptian figure, pots, and old computer boards, as well as tales of pre-revolution Russia from his grandfather. Railton added solo cello to the manipulated results, before these quasi-improvisations were recombined into the work’s filigree matrix during final co-production with members of ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany
