Artist in Residence
A pianist and composer from Melbourne, Australia his work is unified by the simultaneous investigation of the formalized, intuitive, electronic and acoustic. His works have been performed by the LA Philharmonic Association, Brett Dean, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Erkki Veltheim, Timothy Munro, Speak Percussion, Percussion Group The Hague, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble Phoenix Basel, Ensemble Integrales Hamburg, Australian Art Orchestra and Vanessa Tomlinson.
He has an uncommon practice in that outside of writing numerous works for the concert hall, he has worked with leading figures in rock, electronic and jazz genres such as Mike Patton, Stephen O’Malley, Christian Fennesz, Han Bennink, Paul Lovens, eRikm and The Necks.
The commission will be a 50 minute piece, energetic and rhythmically charged with full on electronics flying everywhere. A stochastic afro-beat whiplash of electro-acoustics. Pateras will be conducting from the piano centre stage facing the ensemble with drummers at opposing sides with the ensemble in a semi circle in between.The improvisational aspect will be based around Lutowslawski’s technique in which modules of material are used and overlaid, cued in and out of.
