Anthony Pateras

 
Anthony Pateras (born 1979) is an Australian-born composer, pianist and electro-acoustic musician active since the late 90s. His music explores electro-acoustic orchestration, auditory hallucination and polytemporality.
His work has been recognised through the 2020 Michael Kieran Harvey Scholarship, residencies at Akademie Schloss Solitude, La Becque and ZKM, fellowships from Creative Victoria, Ian Potter & Sydney Myer Foundations, and representing Australia twice at the UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers.
Pateras has been commissioned internationally by INA-GRM, Südwestrundfunk, ensemble]h[iatus, Eklekto, Kitchen Orchestra, the City of Modena, Musica Sanae Festival, Festival Archipel and Synergy Percussion. His pieces have been performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, BBC & Toronto Symphony Orchestras, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Golden Fur and ICE, among many others.
Anthony Patera also works with text and film, recently completing an adaptation of Jump Cuts by Sasha Soldatow & Christos Tsiolkas with James Rushford, music for The Man Who Disappeared by semiotext(e) founder Sylvère Lotringer, and Another Other, an audio-visual re-imagining of Ingmar Bergman's Persona with Natasha Anderson, Sabina Maselli and Erkki Veltheim for Chamber Made.
Pateras' longest running collaborations are with the composer/violinist Erkki Veltheim (in duo, in tētēma & in North of North with Scott Tinkler), and with the electronic musician Jérôme Noetinger, specialising in musique concrète environments using piano, electronics and tape machines.
He has also worked extensively with the programmer & mathematician Rohan Drape on multiple keyboard and ensemble works.
Pateras has also collaborated with Sunn O))), Anthony Burr, eRikm, Oren Ambarchi, Mike Patton or James Rushford on various recording projects, and notable bands include Thymolphthalein, PIVIXKI and Pateras/Baxter/Brown.
Anthony has published over 40 albums of his music on labels Tzadik, Editions Mego, Ipecac, All That Dust, Cave12 and Penultimate Press, and from 2012-2019 edited and produced the 15 volume Immediata text/music project.
From 2001-2008 he completed a Masters and PhD at Monash University which both focused on the intersection of composition, improvisation and electronic music, in relation to timbre and form.
