"Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977. The name ‘Die Form’ means ‘(the) form/shape’ in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym ‘deformed’ and on the French homonym ‘difforme’ (deformed). Die Form is the primary project of electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases in the late 1970s and formed the Bain Total label to release these early cassettes and various side projects including Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic.

In 1982 Die Form released their debut vinyl album, “Die Puppe” in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. These are the first esoteric electronic experiments, often improvised, from what would become the sound of the project. Underlying themes of eroticism, death and other ‘taboo’ subjects are apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which Philippe also produces. The album was recorded with entirely analog equipment (Roland MC4 Micro-Composer, TR-808 Rhythm Composer, ARP 2600, Kawai 60F, Revox B77). Songs range from hypnotic, minimalistic proto-IDM to pure, daring experimental sound manipulation. Unable to fit into any genre, “Die Puppe” is in a class of music all its own."

The vinyl version is available at Dark Entries Records store.

about

Die Form France

Since many years, DIE FORM are well renowned for creating a type of music and image in league with the art form of "multimedia intervention" (combining music, performance, photography and cinema/video).
Always motivated by their passions, Philippe Fichot and Eliane P. depict the ultimate beauty of love, at the boundary of the forbidden.

Track Name: INVALID
INVALID (GRADUAL COLLAPSE)

Needle in the night, relative death,
rejected in the dark, negative pulse,
implosion phase under silky diagram.

Slow move, mute alien,
captive and dirty, expiation time,
vocal chords, inmate of the void,
creeping pain,
invalid, invalid, invalid…

Central motive, of my self-destruction,
by mistake and despair.
Invalid, invalid, invalid…
Track Name: IN A TEA-ROOM
IN A TEA-ROOM

In a tea-room, I'm waiting for the moment, I'm waiting for a sign.
Classical music and classical figures and, I'm waiting…

I'm looking on the walls at a collection of graphic pictures.
I'm drinking in a white tea cup a bloody red posology.

Voices of the background are velvet voices.
Noises and plants are discreet.
My black bulldog is sleeping on the blue floor.

I'm not alone, I'm waiting for the moment, I'm waiting for a sign.
She is in my heart.
A red side and a blue side and,
fire and water.

I'm waiting in a tea-room,
I'm waiting in my heart.
