Pateras, Anthony / Erkki Veltheim: Entertainment = Control (Immediata)

Label: Immediata    
Released in: Australia    

"Long-range acoustic hallucinations for violin and piano. Exploring spectral techniques throughout extended temporal structures, Pateras and Veltheim physically generate unrelenting harmonic waves to create a singular psycho-harmonic texture, blurring perceptions between two otherwise distinct instruments to create something otherworldly and hypnotic."-Immediata
