Jérôme Noetinger: electronics, revox b77. Anthony Pateras: composition, electronics. Synergy Percussion.
An hour-long percussion sextet featuring the instrumentation from Xenakis’ Pleïades. Commissioned for Synergy Percussion’s 40th birthday in 2014. Beauty is a four movement electro-acoustic work for percussion sextet and electronics combining written materials from Anthony Pateras, improvisations with the electroacoustic composer Jérôme Noetinger and a vast battery of over 100 orchestral percussion instruments, including Xenakis’ 17-pitch microtonal metallophones, the Sixxen.
Written over 2 years in Brussels and Berlin, the piece explores spatial polyrhythms, slowshifting textural densities, microtonal sieves and psychoacoustic meditations. Vitruosically executed by Sydney’s Synergy Percussion, the piece stands alone in scope and sound, drawing on Pateras’ unique body of work fororchestral percussion over the last decade. For the occasion of release, the composer interviewed both his collaborator Jérôme Noetinger and founding editor of Semiotext(e), Sylvère Lotringer, who provided the title of the piece. Both interviews topically traverse technology, DIY culture, ethics and the media. This is the 9th release in the Immediata series, beautifully presented in imperial blue recycled cardboard, silver hot stamped text on front, 24 page booklet and mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering.
Limited edition of 300 copies!
