PHOTOGRAMMES, recorded between December 1987 and December 1988 has been released in 1989 on NORMAL Records in limited vinyl and compact disc editions.
It presents the two DIE FORM's facets united again : experimental tracks with electronic rhythms and melodic pieces with peculiar textures composed around the voice of Katia with more perfected texts.
Unique collaboration born of an unforeseen meeting with this young female singer : fragile and sad beauty beyond poetry and perversity.
For the reissue, in addition to the entirely recomposed artwork from the original elements and the remasterized tracks, appear a new piece and photographs extracted from super-8 films.
PHOTOGRAMMES, enregistrÃ© entre dÃ©cembre 1987 et dÃ©cembre 1988 est sorti en 1989 sur NORMAL Records en versions vinyle limitÃ© et compact disc.
Il prÃ©sente les deux facettes de DIE FORM Ã nouveau rÃ©unies : morceaux expÃ©rimentaux aux rythmes Ã©lectroniques et piÃ¨ces mÃ©lodiques aux textures particuliÃ¨res composÃ©es autour de la voix de Katia avec des textes plus travaillÃ©s.
Unique collaboration nÃ©e dâ€™une rencontre imprÃ©vue avec cette jeune chanteuse : fragile et triste beautÃ© au-delÃ de la poÃ©sie et de la perversitÃ©.
Pour la rÃ©Ã©dition, outre la pochette entiÃ¨rement recomposÃ©e dâ€™aprÃ¨s les Ã©lÃ©ments originaux et les morceaux remasterisÃ©s, figurent un morceau inÃ©dit et des photogrammes extraits de films super-8.
