all those electronic sound effects you hear on Hawkwind lps (or that track on "Dark Side of the Moon", or "Alpha Centari" Tangerine Dream)) are Peter's '69 invention, the EMS VCS3 . (no keyboard but keyboard added later and known as the "SYNTHI" or "Putney". The EMS Synthi A = VCS3 in a briefcase)

Peter joined forces with BBC RadioPhonic Workshopists, Brian Hodgson and the legendary Delia Derbyshire to form Unit Delta Plus in the 60's

Used to be you could find a VIRTUAL VCS3 on the internet which you could play with, but seems to be gone now. Anyone???

First Malcolm Cecil not long ago, now Peter Zinovieff.

I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Not music-related, but a bloke I knew a bit, stupidly played against, and had a good few fun drinks with back in the day. RIP Andy "The Viking" Fordham; gentle giant and all-round lovely guy.
