According to Russian resources the ANS is considered the first electronic synthesizer in the world, technically following the 'Varifon' built by Sholpo back in the early 30's (which was an earlier attempt at conversion of optical information into sound). The various sound pieces in the Coil - ANS boxset are the work of Jhonn Balance solo, Jhonn Balance and Ossian Brown, Peter Christopherson solo, Thighpaulsandra solo, Ivan Pavlov solo and Jhonn Balance and Ivan Pavlov together. This release contains a bonus DVD with animations made by Peter Cristopherson.
