Anthony Pateras/Erkki Veltheim “Duos for Other Instruments” CD



There are moments in the films of Werner Herzog where a conversation stops and the camera lingers on the interlocutors, a little too long for comfort. Something may be revealed about the characters in those awkward passages…Does looking long enough, hard enough, at something make it art on its own terms?

A sense of communication beyond the frame can be felt in the collaborations between Anthony Pateras and Erkki Veltheim. Their practice as a duo concentrates their shared interest in experiencing the materiality of music; of the way sounds become music and how that music can come to feel to be a tangible force. With liner notes by Laura Tunbridge.
