eRikm and Anthony Pateras are two of the most prolific figures in contemporary electroacoustic music. eRikm is considered among the most prominent experimentalists with turntables and CDJs, exploring different qualities of loops and hidden possibilities of both analog and digital devices, while Pateras is known for his revolutionary approach to piano playing and compositions which attempt to extract characteristics typical of electroacoustic music from regular instruments. In 2017, they embarked on a collaborative encounter in direct dialogue through their machines, and this coagulation created a free concrète music inscribed firmly in the present. The duo have performed all over Europe; this is their first tour of Australia and New Zealand.
eRikm (Marseille), active since 1992, references both the intimate and political, both popular and high culture, collaborates with artists such as Luc Ferrari, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, FM Einheit, Mathilde Monnier and Les Percussions des Strasbourg. Also highly active in the fields of visual and sound art.
Anthony Pateras (Chewton), active since 1999, composes for instrumental ensembles and electro-acoustic settings, plays piano and/or electronics. Has collaborated with artists such as Sunn O))), Mike Patton, Jérôme Noetinger, Erkki Veltheim, Maja Osojnik, and performed in bands Pateras/Baxter/Brown, PIVIXKI, Thymolphthalein and North of North.
