ZINOVIEFF, PETER & LUCY RAILTON - RFG INVENTIONS FOR CELLO AND COMPUTER (LP)


"'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'. 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."
