THIS AIN’T MY FIRST RODEO is a project that explores the psycho-acoustic interactions between two synthesizers in quadraphonic settings. Ornamenting the synthesizer fabric are materials generated and mutated by 1/4 inch tape delay.

These elements fuse to heighten the production of sound phenomena and third-ear emissions. Pateras thus creates sound textures with infinite folds allowing an immersive listening, applying his knowledge in the field of electroacoustic and spectral music, his research on physical and acoustic phenomena and the exploration of sound and its mutation — XING

"THIS AIN"T MY FIRST RODEO was commissioned by the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund in partnership with the Australian Music Centre".
