The first solo piano album by Anthony Pateras in 10 years, marking the mid-point of the Immediata series.
Blood Stretched Out explores sound phenomena, generating swirling overtones through polymorphic repetitions, gradually spanning the entire range of the keyboard. The piece was commissioned by Lampo, premiering in Chicago and since performed all over Europe and Australia, including an infamous concert opening for Faith No More at Zitadelle Spandau! After numerous attempts to capture the phenomenological aspects of the piece to disc, this version was recorded live at Géraldine Schenkel's Piano Cataclysme in Geneva in 2016.
Chronochromatics is an extended study of parallel theme and variations. Ideas are exploded and explored, constantly shifting, melding and reconfiguring into continually perplexing forms which are at once circular and linear. Recorded live at The Loft in Cologne for Hayden Chisholm's Plush Music Festival in 2013.
