tētēma is the collaboration between Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle) and the Melbourne based, electro-acoustic artist Anthony Pateras. They announced the release of their sophomore album. Necroscape is out on April 3rd via Ipecac Recordings. We already shared “Haunted on The Uptake” and “Wait Till Mornin’”; “Soliloquy” is a new excerpt.
“No other band would combine microtonal buchla with hyperactive drumming to serenade Paganini and Leonard Cohen passed out in a hot tub,” said Pateras of the song. “This track is like pressing fast forward on both a [Giacinto] Sclesi and Yasunao Tone CD on different systems pointed at each other, except it’s performed live. Quite possibly the only track in the world to refer to Deleuze as ‘chichi’.”
