'A MUSICAL EVOCATION OF GILLES DELEUZE' - This album (the tenth in Palo Alto's discography) was born from two ambitions: to pay tribute to Soft Machine's 'Third' on form (4 sides/4 titles) and to philosopher Gilles Deleuze ('Difference And Repetition' is the title of his thesis) on the contents. The 4 long pieces of this double concept album were developed over 2 years and each has a different style and climate. Bold and kaleidoscopic, 'Difference And Repetition' perfectly synthesizes the musical and literary obsessions of Palo Alto. Formed in Paris in 1989, Palo Alto released its first album (a cassette) on the Italian label Old Europa Cafe in 1990. The band is now composed of Jacques Barbéri (also a science fiction author), Laurent Pernice (ex-member of the French industrial band Nox) and Philippe Perreaudin (also coordinator of several compilations and reissues: Legendary Pink Dots, Un Département, Nino Ferrer Revisited, Ptôse, Hardy Fox). Literature, and particularly science fiction, is a leitmotiv in the band's work. Antoine Volodine, Thomas Pynchon, Philip K. Dick, Lewis Carroll or J.G. Ballard have been invoked many times. In recent years, Palo Alto has multiplied musical collaborations with, among others, The Residents, Ptôse, Klimperei and Tuxedomoon. From industrial music to inextricable electronic ramifications, by making a detour through improvisation, the musical universe of Palo Alto is multifaceted. This album is no exception to this rule.
TRACKS:
1. The Tears Of Nietzsche feat. Richard Pinhas
2. Rhizome feat. Thierry Zaboitzeff
3. Triptych feat. Alain Damasio
4. Différence Et Répétition feat. Rhys Chatham


Also available: DIFFERENCE AND REPETITION (2LP) (LP).
