descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Throughout the last decade, the works of Anthony Pateras have been performed by some of the world's leading ensembles and performers. He has collaborated with a broad array of contemporary artists including Han Bennink, eRikm, Christian Fennesz, Paul Lovens, Stephen O'Malley, The Necks and Mike Patton. He is also one half of the mind-blowing piano/drums avant-grind outfit known as PIVIXKI, and is founder of the Electro-Acoustic-Free-Concréte quintet THYMOLPHTHALEIN.

This 5-disc set covers many aspects of his musical output. Disc 1 features chamber and orchestral pieces, containing a string quartet, small ensemble works and a mammoth electric violin concerto with spatilized orchestra and quadraphonic electronics. Disc 2 is a re-issue of his widely performed Chasms for prepared piano, accompanied by a brand new piece to smash any cute-sy post- Cageian grooves right back into the emotronica abyss. Disc 3 features menacing pipe organ textures recorded on the largest instrument in the southern hemisphere. Disc 4 features two extended solo piano works captured live in the opulence of Sydney's State Theatre, and Disc 5 features mind-bending works for solo and ensemble orchestral percussion.

As a self-contained box - handsomely packaged with foil text, satin ribbon and containing an informative, full-colour 16-page booklet with sketches and notes - this is an astonishing overview of one of Australia's most unique, uncompromising and exciting composers. Usually releasing material on flagship labels Tzadik and Editions Mego, this is the first release on the composer's own Immediata imprint."-Immediata
