In 2000 together with Vladimir Nelinov, Sergey Rodyukov and Vladimir Kudryavtsev he created musical band "Pan-Quartet", together they performed at the European festivals and created music for theatre. In 2003, by virtue of the efforts of its founder and of Olga Berger, the group developed into the SounDrama studio, which immediately became one of the most important theatre phenomenons in Moscow. Leaving Word for Sound and returning from Sound to Word, Pankov creates an absolutely new genre in Russia– SounDrama. The aesthetic principles of Pankov and his team were put into practice in their first play “The red Thread “, which was followed by “Doc.tor”, “Passage”, “Morphine” and the famous trilogy “Gogol. Evenings”, the newest version of which can be seen in Gogol Center.
