Beautifully slow drifting compositions for clarinet, ARP 2600, piano and prepared piano from the duo of Anthony Burr and Anthony Pateras, drawing on Cage and Feldman in these expansive and tranquil works that create beautiful and quietly exotic sound environments.
Burr, Anthony / Anthony Pateras
The Long Exhale
Released in: Australia
"Seven meditations for clarinets, pianos and electronics. The Long Exhale catalogues psychoacoustic experiments and Feldman-influenced acoustic excursions undertaken between 2014 and 2015 by Australian composer/performers Anthony Burr and Anthony Pateras."-Immediata
"Pateras in duet with Anthony Burr, who plays clarinets and ARP 2600. Five pieces were recorded at the university of California and two in Berlin. The booklet here focuses on the career of Burr and I learned some interesting stuff, such as that he worked with Lamonte Young and Alvin Lucier (and further research learned we share our birthday), and all along I was playing this music, which is the total opposite to North By North. Here we have seven pieces of very calm and introspective playing, and everything seems to be in a very minimal mood. Sparse notes on the piano are mixed with similar sparseness on the clarinets, and the arp provides a drone here and there. When Pateras prepares his piano he makes it sound exactly like John Cage intended it to be: like a percussion instrument, and that adds another, again sparse, sound to the music. All of these pieces are of similar austere nature; so perhaps one could think that there is some need for some sudden lively action, which (spoiler alert) doesn't happen. There is a beautiful slow flow in this music, which leads to some very Zen-like activity of doing nothing at all."-Fran de Waard, Vital Weekly
