Anthony Pateras (b.1979) is a pianist and composer from Melbourne, living and working in Brussels. 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 collaborated with a stylistic cross-section of musical innovators such as Han Bennink, eRikm, Christian Fennesz, Paul Lovens, Stephen O’Malley, The Necks and Mike Patton.
Currently he is one half of the piano/drums duo PIVIXKI (with Max Kohane from Agents of Abhorrence), and the analogue electronics project POLETOPRA (with visual artist Marco Fusinato). His project THYMOLPHTHALEIN, formed on an invitation from the Sudwestrundfunk New Jazz Meeting in 2009, performed most recently at The Forum, opening for Faust’s first Australian appearance. 2012 has unveiled two new projects: KAYFABE with Natasha Anderson and ASTRAL COLONELS with Valerio Tricoli.
