Sun - Featuring Peter Zinovieff of EMS

Published on Jul 19, 2017 NUSTEM

This performance was during the Rainwire [Processed] installation at University of Hull by Noyzelab.

"Poet Katrina Porteous and composer Peter Zinovieff collaborated to produce a planetarium experience of live poetry, wrap-around visuals, and surround-sound music. The piece is an artistic response to the work of Northumbria University's Solar Physics Research Group.

Sun premiered at Newcastle's Life Science Centre planetarium on November 18th 2016.

This version was produced for follow-on performances, and for YouTube. For more background about the piece, and the wider context of the Imagining the Sun project of which this was part, see:"

"Imagining the Sun is a collaboration of a poet, a sound artist and a visual artist with Northumbria University’s solar physics research group, supported by the outreach specialists at NUSTEM. The project challenges public and schools audiences to explore how approaches from art and science can complement and inform each other. Alongside the schools programme sit a series of public performances and exhibitions."


Peter Zinovieff, of course, was the founder of EMS.

"A scientist, composer, librettist and pioneer of electronic music, in the 1960s Peter was one of the first people in the world to use a computer to create music.

With David Cockerell and Tristram Cary he formed Electronic Music Studios, which created some of the earliest electronic instruments, including the seminal VCS3.

Peter’s instruments – and particularly the techniques he pioneered, like sampling – continue in widespread use."
