|march 2012 release ; ... really quite lovely score to eron sheehan’s “psychological thriller about one man’s quest for redemption from his own disturbing past, set within the mysterious world of genetic engineering” composed by anthony pateras ...|
knowing anthony largely as an improvising pianist / synthesist & composer of percussion works up until this point, it’s quite astonishing to hear him in full bloom here ; he speaks the language of contemporary film-sound with aplomb, channeling eliot goldenthal & cliff martinez’ recent, largely electronic work through a series of short queues clearly intended for various functional roles throughout the film (there’s the “bugs on my skin” one, “sudden realization”, “significant development” ... even a straight up “club scene”) ... all rendered using a palette of tuned percussion, piano, analogue synth, and a smaller chamber group ...

errors of the human body is a feature film shot at the max planck institute in dresden, germany. written and directed by eron sheean, it stars michael eklund, karoline herfurth, tómas lemarquis and rik mayall, with music by editions mego stalwart anthony pateras.
in the early 2000's sheean met pateras in melbourne, and they have worked together ever since, pateras scoring 3 of sheean's short films which have all been screened a numerous festivals worldwide. errors of the human body ost is the musical results of their first feature-length collaboration.
instrumentation includes strings, winds, brass and a broad arsenal of percussion performed by melbourne's magnificent speak percussion. pateras' distinct keyboards and electronics permeate throughout, evoking the film's key themes of isolation, scientific intrigue, ambiguous ethics and hallucinatory metamorphosis.
this album covers a lot of ground, incorporating elements of alien synthesis, lush textures, odd, layered rhythms and wild production. there is even a club track with tape-delayed string orchestra, contrabassoon and cowbell. no one can decide whether they like it.
quite possibly being the only record this year incorporating arp2600 and thumb piano, it features pateras' electronic language with contemporary experiments with orchestration, glued together with a determination to test the edges of the film music medium.
vinyl edition contains liner notes by anthony pateras.
