To hear something where there is no sound, or to perceive wrong what is audible. Of this kind is the tinkling and humming of the ears (susurrus aurium), the hearing of unusual foreign sounds and voices. The most troublesome, and distressing of these evils is buzzing in the ears. By its violence and uninterrupted continuance, it may attain a degree which deprives the sufferer of all mental tranquillity, and brings him to desperation.

(Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland Enchiridion Medicum: Or Manual of the Practice of Medicine. The Result of Fifty Years' Experience, 1884)

Anthony Pateras is an Australian artist, who, influenced by his experience with freely improvised and electroacoustic music, will join forces together with a group of great musicians and improvisers to present a song causing sound hallucinations and using spatial sound projection. The ensemble formed to perform this new composition features Lucio Capece and Lizzy Welsh, as well as Mike Majkowski and Gerard Lebik, who have Polish ties and backgrounds. The project was developed in cooperation with the Sound Sanatorium within the Musica Sanae project.

The concert will be opened with a new composition for solo viola d’amore and six-channel electronics projection by Australian artist Natasha Anderson, who is an author of numerous sound installations, flute player, improviser, almost regular collaborator of Pateras and a distinctive voice of the new school of composition from the tiniest of the continents.

Natasha Anderson is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
