A 5-disc overview of exploratory works written between 2005 and 2018, including long-form ensemble pieces, idiosyncratic trio combinations and a collection of 10 solos investigating various potential interactions between instrument and tape.
Anthony Pateras is an Australian composer, pianist and electronic musician whose current work focuses on electro-acoustic orchestration, temporal hallucination and sound phenomena.
Pateras has created over 75 works, receiving performances from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Australian Chamber Orchestra and BBC Symphony, commissions from INA-GRM, Slagwerk Den Haag and Südwestrundfunk Baden-Baden, residencies from ZKM, Akademie Schloss Solitude and La Becque, and fellowships from Creative Victoria, and the Ian Potter and Sydney Myer Foundations.
He has released over 40 albums including collaborations with Mike Patton, Chris Abrahams and Valerio Tricoli, guested on records by Oren Ambarchi, Sunn O))) and Fennesz, as well as working in film with director Pia Borg, producer François Tetaz and literary critic Sylvère Lotringer. Aside from solo concerts, Pateras currently performs with eRikm, Jérôme Noetinger and North of North.
Operating independently, he initiated the Immediata series in 2012 as a music and text project to create a dialogue around contemporary music making in the early 21st century.
This is the 15th and last release in the Immediata series, containing close to five and a half hours of music, beautifully presented in a silver box with black hotstamping, 24 page booklet and a ribbon.

This 2xLP tells the story of the formation of a universe behind the eyes; the genesis of the cosmos, a rock begins to orbit a star, life erupts from beneath the ice, the birth of a green new planet. Contemplative stuff... serious thinkers only. Mike DeRoitr
