IMM005 – ASTRAL COLONELS: GOOD TIMES IN THE END TIMES
Tuesday February 16th 2016, 1:54 pm
Filed under: News

TRACKLIST

I. (13:04)
II. (13:00)
III. (9:56)

PERSONNEL

Anthony Pateras: Doepfer A-100 / Harpsichord / Pipe Organ / Prepared Piano
Valerio Tricoli: Revox B77 / Voice

PRESS RELEASE

A billion perspectives on the same instrumental explosion. Approaching their electro-acoustic arsenal as a shimmering diamond refracting omni-directional compositional potential, Astral Colonels (Anthony Pateras & Valerio Tricoli) have worked over 7 years to transform pianos, organs, harpsichords, tape machines and synthesizers into an expansive sonic otherworld.

Known for his work as producer/singer of the cult Italian group 3/4hadbeeneliminated, as well as his collaborations with Thomas Ankersmit, Sicilian electro-acoustic composer Valerio Tricoli’s compositional alchemy is positioned somewhere between the masterworks of the GRM, the song-form complexity of Roy Harper and Brian Wilson, metaphysics, the radical signal paths proposed by the Sonic Arts Union, classic Russian literature and late 20th century psychedelics. Under the spiritual guidance of Fernando Oreste Nannetti, the Astral Colonels pay tribute to his detailed imagination and obsession, laughing in the face of hell to bring you good times in the end times.

This is the fifth release on the ongoing Immediata series, beautifully presented in bright orange thick recycled cardboard, silver hot stamped text on front, 20 page booklet featuring an extended interview with Valerio Tricoli, and mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering. Limited edition of 300 copies.

PERSONNEL

Robin Fox: Electronics
Erik Griswold: Prepared Piano
Anthony Pateras: Prepared Piano

PRESS RELEASE

Music for two prepared pianos and electronics without precedent. Employing stochastic improvisations, live analogue processing, feedback experiments, atmospheric tape composition, ultra-physical episodic structures, all developed laboratory style over a month and recorded at its peak performance, this is a rare gem of live electro-acoustic instrumental music that defies the typical expectations of the given resources.

Initiated and completed in 2001, the Extended Pianos project was set up in a rock rehearsal room with two white baby grand pianos, some rare Australian synthesizers and an early version of the application Audiomulch. Featuring the pianists Erik Griswold & Anthony Pateras, and the electronic musician Robin Fox, this album documents the compelling results of their daily labors, culminating in 5 sophisticated pieces released here for the first time, 15 years later.

This is the fourth release on the ongoing Immediata text & music series, beautifully presented in dark grey thick recycled cardboard, silver hot stamped text on front, 20 page booklet including interviews with Robin Fox and Erik Griswold, and mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering. Limited edition of 300 copies.

FEB 5th: PATERAS/ABRAHAMS OPENING IN CHRISTCHURCH

176-postcard

176 is a decade old collaborative piece with Chris Abrahams. We originally intended to release the piece on 5.1 DVD, but given the inbuilt redundancy of technological utopias, its been sitting around neglected in the archive, until the good people at The Auricle decided to exhibit it this month!

Stay tuned for our other piece, featuring all 8 octaves of the piano for 50 minutes played by both of us, out on Immediata later in the year….
