Anthony Pateras is a composer and performer from Melbourne, Australia. Primarily an idiosyncratic pianist, he also performs on modular synthesizer.
His musical activity runs the gamut from the large-scale hyper-ambitious ensemble writing to extended prepared piano pieces and immersive noise. His longest running projects are the event-heavy, analog/digital synth duo with DSP/lazer whiz Robin Fox (Editions Mego) and the acclaimed free music trio Pateras/Baxter/Brown.
His collaborators reflect his diversity, having worked with Han Bennink, Brett Dean, Valerio Tricoli, Oren Ambarchi, MC Vulk Makedonski, Jim Denley, Paul Lovens, Christian Fennesz, Richard Tognetti, Lucas Abela, Slave Pianos, Thomas Lehn and The Necks. In 2011 he will be starting new collaborations with DJ erikM and guitarist Stephen O'Malley.
Anthony performs regularly throughout the world, and his music is released through the labels Tzadik (NYC), Editions Mego (Vienna) and Lexicon Devil (Melbourne).
