Lucy Railton & Peter Zinovieff
RFG for cello and computer
– Part of the NODE17 Closing event
The collaborative project RFG by classical Cellist Lucy Railton and electronic music pioneer Peter Zienovieff was born out of a long collaboration involving electro-acoustic manipulation, improvisation – and as rumour has it, Rowntree’s Fruit Gums (RFG).
Its structure is neither derived from modern electronic music nor does it comply with the traditional sonata form: RFG has a unique structure combining a live instrumental part and an assemblage of pre-recorded, manipulated material forming an “orchestral” counterpart.
Designed for performance with 7 spatially configured loudspeakers, RFG articulates a bold and luminous meshing of voices, a visceral encounter between a venerated technological innovator and one of today’s leading instrumentalists.
The 40-minute piece is composed for cello and a computer, needless to say, as Zienovieff was certainly the first person to wheel one onto a concert stage to perform ‘live’.
