Anthony Pateras
Lampo Performance Series
May 20, 2011 (8pm)

Please RSVP

For his first Chicago performance, Anthony Pateras will present a new 4-channel work made especially for the occasion – an homage to Henri Chopin, using revoxed voice, manipulated Doepfer synthesizer recordings and prepared piano polyrhythms, performed in the dark.

Anthony Pateras (b. 1979, Melbourne, Australia) is a composer and performer from Melbourne, Australia. He is an idiosyncratic pianist, works with the Doepfer A-100 synthesizer and writes works for ensembles, orchestras and soloists. Pateras explores diverse musical interests through his projects: high velocity piano/drums explorations, electro-acoustic improvising ensembles, extended prepared piano pieces and immersive noise. He has performed or recorded with Han Bennink, Valerio Tricoli, Oren Ambarchi, Jim Denley, Paul Lovens, Fennesz, Thomas Lehn and The Necks. Previous groups include a decade-long duo project with Robin Fox, and the acclaimed free music trio Pateras/Baxter/Brown. He plays regularly throughout the world, and his music is released through the labels Tzadik (New York), Editions Mego (Vienna) and Lexicon Devil (Melbourne). He holds a PhD from Monash University.

This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art and intermedia projects. For information and to add your name to the Lampo list, contact or visit
