Anthony Pateras writes:

Although I've played piano since I was 5, writing music for the instrument itself has always been the biggest challenge for me. I use it as acompositional tool, a sample source, I prepare it, I improvise in numerous contexts with it, yet sitting down and writing a piece for it, despite numerous requests, leaves me blank. To circumvent this, I decided his year to develop and solidify my own personal lexicon of techniques into a formalised structure, or at least a set of parameters which were re-performable. This Perth performance is the first culmination of this approach…Throughout its composition I've tried to keep in mind the phrase "BLEED DON"T BLOCK" meaning, I'm trying to get away from my earlier starkly episodic structures, instead formalising something a bit more fluid, a bit more strange. Like my other extended work for myself, CHASMS (2007) for prepared piano, I guess this can only be performed by me. This is not any kind of statement - quite simply, I think I finally figured out that I can only write piano music for the way I play the piano.
