Anthony Pateras, Chris ABRAHAMS

Music In Eight Octaves

Label: Immediata

Format: CD

Out of stock

A multi-octave delirium at the summit of sonic density. Recorded in 2005 in Melbourne, Chris Abrahams and Anthony Pateras multi-tracked 4 takes in each octave of the piano, superimposing them over each other to create a kaleidoscopic maelstrom pianistic energy in its purest form. Best known as the pianist from The Necks, this is a distinctly different outing for Abrahams, exploring a more maximalist energy and aesthetic than usual. As with all Immediata releases, Anthony Pateras interviews his collaborators on the current state of creative music in the early 21st century. In this instance, Chris Abrahams provides a fascinating oral history of creative music in 1980s Sydney, covering topics such as his early influences, the formation of the Keys Music Association, inner city rock bands, working with Jamie Fielding and an extended discussion of his practice regime and approach to the keyboard.
