Chasms is the extraordinary debut solo prepared piano album from
Australian composer/pianist Anthony Pateras. Chasms takes things
further, re-configuring the instrument into a psychoacoustic
percussion orchestra, exploring extended timbral continuums through
complex rhythms and physically intense performance strategies.
Through purely acoustic means, the work attempts to enhance piano
performance via a compositional sympathy with algorhythmic computer
composition and studio technology.This is electro-psycho-acoustic
music created purely with prepared piano.
Anthony Pateras is a composer and performer. Live, he appears
regularly throughout Europe and Australasia on prepared piano in the
Pateras/Baxter/Brown trio, on voice & electronics with Robin Fox,
prepared piano solo or as a conductor of his own notated works.
Pateras has released and produced numerous albums, recording for
Tzadik (New York), Editions Mego (Vienna), Synaesthesia (Melbourne)
and Quecksilber (Berlin).

Alvin Curran once described the music of Steve Peters as "pure,
restrained, and rigorously beautiful." These three delicate pieces -
or rooms, as the title states - are the result of very personal
investigation regarding the interaction between physical spaces and
the experience of listening. The selected compositions aim to create
room(s) for the listener, intensifying quietly and subtly our awareness.
These pieces explore tactile interaction with the interior surfaces
and materials of architecture; approach breathing rhythms to acheve
miniature compositions that evoke the contemplative space of a
Japanese rock garden; or reveal the complex dance of overtones in the
air and ever-deepening pure waves from asingle bell strike.
Steve Peters makes music/sound for various contexts and occasions,
using recorded sounds of the world and found/natural objects, or
through exploration of acoustic phenomena, as well as normal
instruments and spoken text. In recent years his work has focused
primarily on site-specific sound environments that explore ideas
about place/presence and encourage subtle listening for extended

# The Beautiful Schizophonics
Cronica, 029, CD
Marcel Proust has been one of the main sources of inspiration. The
image of a sleepless solitary writer confined to a Parisian
soundproof room, has everything to do with the experience of a modern
laptop composer, alone in the dark of a room, in a sort of headphone
ecstasy with his acoustic fragments of reality. ("La letrice" is
Colleen reading Proust in Paris.)
