Peter Zinovieff passed away on June 23, 2021, but he left quite a mark on avant-garde music. The British-born son of Russian aristocrats, he sold his wife’s tiara for his first computer, and from there, he would work with some of the greatest bands of the 20th century including Pink Floyd and David Bowie, Todd Rundgren and a host of Krautrock groups before going into composing for computer on his own.
This compilation of artists pay homage to the little-known but highly respected performer. All this came together, apparently, as an idea to give Peter a proper sendoff on Facebook. The social media giant is hideous for many reasons, but in this case, their existence served a good purpose.
