Peter Zinovieff: Synth Pioneer

Peter Zinovieff has been described as Britain’s Bob Moog. A renowned composer from the mid ‘60s to the present day, he was one of the founders of EMS who produced seminal synthesizers such as the VCS3 and the Synthi AKS, as used by Brian Eno, Pink Floyd and the Chemical Brothers.

We met him in his home studio to discuss half a century of technological innovation and musical development, from his first experimental studio, to his use of early computers, as well as his compositions and the latest music production software.
