Peter Zinovieff

Trained as a mathematician and atomic physicist, Peter Zinovieff was turned on to electronic music in the 1960s by a pre-Radiophonic Workshop Daphne Oram, who showed him how to compose by splicing tape together. Frustrated by the difficulties of working with long reels of tape, Zinovieff decided to build his own electrically controlled studio in his garden shed in Putney, the first computer housed on a private estate
