Russian-born electro-acoustic composer Ivan Pavlov relocated to Sweden before his releases through German experimental electronic/computer music label Rastermusic began to appear in the late 1990s. Beginning with Enter_Tinnitus -- Raster's first release in its Static series, packaged in distinctive static-free bags-Pavlov's fusion of sine wave patterns and delicate digital treatments are some of the most evocative in minimalist experimental post-techno. His second Raster release appear on the label's sub-imprint, Noton; his "Into Memories of S-Tone, for Gavin Bryars" was the fourth release in Noton's acclaimed pre-millennial series, 20" to 2000. Pavlov's work has also been featured in numerous galleries and site-specific performances, most notably in collaboration with a print of da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Pavlov assigned samples and notes to the painting's RGB color values to produce music based directly on the painting's visual properties.
