2.2 What Die Form say about themselves...

From the press booklet:

(This text can also be found on the Vicious Circles: The Best Of"
Among the French independent productions, years after years, DIE FORM has
been able to impose a music and an image the more complete in the practice
of "multi-media intervention" (records and cassettes, live actions,
photographs and films...)

 Besides about a hundred participations to international compilations,
since 1978 several records, compact discs and cassettes which are
conspicuous by the sound and visual quality, allow to catch a glimpse of
the peculiar universe of the group: techno-sex music, industrial electro-
dance or more experimental futurist constructions (based on rhythms, cuts,
sampling, treated voices and electronic sequencing).

 Perverse and subversive images, sado-masochist fascination of sexuality
and death...DIE FORM exhibits the esthetic outrage oscillating on the
boundary of interdicts.

2.3. What I know about Die Form...

Die Form is a French duo which consists of Philippe Fichot (age 37) -
responsible for composing, programming and artwork - and Eliane P. (age 32)
who does the vocals. Both are living together in a 45m^2 sized flat in a
small village in France since 12 years with their bulldog "Eros". [stupid
trivia, but, wow, sounds so romantic... ed.]

 The sound of Die Form could be categorised as a mixture of electro,
industrial and techno which is often dominated by pulsating hypnotic
machine-like beats and (since the last releases) by the classical
sacral-like vocals of Eliane P.

 But the music is just one component of the multi-media artwork of Die Form
which confronts us also with provocative and contradictory pictures and
live performances. These live performances probably added a lot to the
image of Die Form as an industrial act which is based in the S/M and fetish
scene. Nowadays those public appearances have become more tame - maybe one
reason for this is Philippe being fed up with the categorisation of Die
Form as "sex industrial".

 The name "Die Form" originates from a journal of the same name which was
issued in the 1920es in Germany and was strongly connected to the Bauhaus
arts and architecture movement.

 The name "Bain Total" first appeared on the album Bain Total Cleaning
Solution - Music for deaf & dumb persons" of 1977.

 The first single of Die Form Zoophilic Lolita/Tanz was released in 1977
and a larger audience was reached with the debut lp "Die Puppe" in 1982.

 Since their change to the German
[http://www.netville.de/hyperium/index.html] Hyperium label in 1992(?) they
are now one of the most prominent formations in European electronic
underground music.

 Over 75 percent of their albums are sold in Germany.

 At the moment of writing Die Form is busy with producing a video, new
pictures and thinking about a new album which will complete the "Trilogy of
passion" which was started by Suspiria de Profundisand continued by L;âme


 (Eliane P. & Philippe Fichot)

2.4. What others want to tell about die Form...

Ecki Stieg, presenter of German electronic music show "Grenzwellen" on FFN
radio, 21.04.96:

Sex, sado-masochism, the border zones of human sexuality and death are the
main topics of DIE FORM, the project of French Philippe Fichot.

 Even in 1992 the band caused a stir by their extremly permissive
performances, This lead to the fact that admittance to DIE FORM in Germany
concerts is only permitted to persons beyond 18 years. Musically DIE FORM
started as an atonal avantgardistic project in the tradition of Throbbing
Gristle or the early Cabaret Voltaire turning soon to more pop-like but
neither less seductive synthi-pop-sounds: The dark, menacing heaviness of
Fichot's compositions became more approachable by an electronic
instrumentation which is more up-to-date and danceable without losing any
intensity nor essence.

American magazine ND in 1985:

Ned writes:
[...] I came across an old, old issue of ND magazine, an experimental
audio/art magazine from Texas.  It's issue #4 from January 1985 and has an
article on Die Form!! [...] and there is a note that the English
translation may be a bit rough...[...]  All the spelling errors are present
in the original: I have corrected nothing.




Interactions between the individual and the environment.  Transcriptions of
emotions through sound and image.  From whence a certain difformity recoils
into the indefinite.


 Natural selection (afraid to be devoured) Incesant mutations, derived from
doing the same constant movement.

 The repetition or the insaturation of an involving system.  The loss of
intensity and then the final solutin and self-destruction.It is why all the
means of action are used, alternatively, or superimposed, hindering as well
a shifty system.

 Hybrid system, mobile, all the time out of step and impregnated selected
images/ selected in the time.  Elusive because it is unclassifiable. 
Beyond all control.  To give birth to the new multi-formed cells and
multifunctions, branching out into the infinitive.(Eva-Johanna
Reichstag/Krylon Hertz/Fine Automatic/Camera Obscura/Mental Code/Hurt)


Elaboration of a triangular system to the complimentary

 "Sex & Bestiality" is the concretation of a deciding action, planned for
the year 1.984 and dedicated to Genesis P-Orridge: gathered together arond
the theme of sex and bestiality, the creatures of the entire world, working
in all domains and by the aid of any means.Exit a deadened street.

 Catalyst/Present/Reomve yourself.


 "Some Experiences With Shock" constitutes the point of rupture permitted
to evolve beyond the limits fixed through the course of the year through
developing images.  Out of this same system comes Die Form: Bain Total.

 Abandon the opportunity due to machines or rhythmic automation, to utilize
all of the digital technology on a par with to give back these sounds.  Out
of the new album, all of the ambiguity and the duality of Die Form are
condensed.  The cuts of the side "Survival and Determination" recorded in
the studio, are the direct realization of previous works, while the side
"Lacerations and Immolation" has a new autonomous production, not
necessarily a recourse outside of the organization, is the concentration of
new orientations, sounds and visuals of Die Form.

 Scrupulous selection of the new collaboration and participations, avoiding
being parasitic.Scenic evolution of representations near certain images of
violence and sex:


 After the single "Heart Of The Monster" (with Front de l'Est) and the
album "Some Experiences With Shock" (concerning Terrace & Maky, a new
associations based in Paris), Die Form is preparing a 3rd album composed
without exterior interventions (diversification of approaches).

 As for Bain Total, if the necessary means are reunited, catalog 5
(Sept/Oct) will present new box cassettes (Etant Donnes/Legendary Pink
Dots/I.M.M./D.F.S.S./Kosa-Die Form/Sex And Bestiality vol 1 international
audio- graphic compilation), as well as new issue of "Graph" (4), composed
of written texts by Pierre Demossier, illustrated by photographs and a
cassette of Die Form.

 The music of Die Form may be the scum of all sorts of deviations, of which
the sexual deviations (medical or para medical, sadomasochism, urology,
scatology, zoophilie...) Two orientations are possible: the exhibition and
the suggestions.  The dosage must be operated with great care so as not to
fall into the excess of cliches and references, in proportion with our
rejections of all systems of reference.  After a phase of ehibition of much
searching, we orient ourselves at the time near a applainssement on the
level of visual representation.  The spectator must make an effort of
adaption and the transcription, rather than to be aggressive.  We are
reaching certain limits beyond, which the human body and the psychic is in
a manner irreversable.

 For functioning, the system of D.F. must be in constant
evolution/mutation.  We look for neither sedution or pushing, leaving the
spectator and the listener of liberty, of judgement, and the
interpretation.  Each act is the representation of overt heart of passion. 
We play near ambiguity and frustration for dedication to easy access.  All
is constructed near a conspiracy till the end of time, in a more or less
controllable manner.  Until a state outside of place and outside of time. 
Introversion.  Only the extreme relations, of which the usage of cries and
of shock, is able to disengage that state.  We refuse all systems of
references, because they are not unique.  They are not always the soul and
blood.  The bonds who we are and we wound (cords and chains) are that one
of sublime quotes and concentrated near a very short duration.  Die Form
disturbs by its lack of foresight and stability, but especially by its
immodest exhibition of pleasure and suffering.

 Obscure revelation of love.

 We succeded over the years to free ourselves from the influence and to
give an identity to our productions, to the quality of work of the
presentation.  It is not conceivable to leave a product unfinished or

 -At the level of support of production all means interest us.  The only
barrier being financial.  After the release of a single and an album, we
are going to dedicate ourselves to the production of films and videos.  We
are not waiting for the public, but rather we are going to wait for a
movement on their part towards us.  Convergence.

 We nevertheless hold to touch the exterior of the industrial music to
avoid saturation.-There is often a duality to Die Form, because it is the
reflection of the transcription of our passion.  We are able to choke
certain profits from others.  The selection can not operate never having.

 -We have the difficulty of distributing our own products, we lack the time
and the means.Moreover, we want to remain at the limit of obscurity and
light.  Each product, in order to conserve the identity, must guard a
confidential and limited diffusion.  We work with a minimium number of
distributors, in the end remaining autonomous.  We had too many unpleasant
levels of payment and usurpations.

 -For Etant Donnes the best way is to write or telephone.  Eric and Marc
Hurtado, 64 rue de Stalingrad, 31800 Greno Le. tel(76)464513.

 -When we present the images, we do not pose ourselves to the problem of
the listener understanding out music.  When an image is, shown, it is a
necessity to an immediate context.  The public is free to assist in any of
our representations, our advance or recession is up to them of that which
we submit.

 Ned writes:
The discog doesn't mention the second edition of Archives & Doküments, or
the second edition of Die Puppe, or the D.Sign single (I've heard rumours
that there are 2, "Burning Cells" and one other), or the book, or the
singles (however many of them there are), or the tapes (God knows how many
of *them* there are). Also, Museum Of Ecstasy was supposed to have already
been released, but I was informed that it was pushed back because Fichot
didn't get his artwork to [http://www.netville.de/hyperium/index.html]
Hyperium in time. So it's been pushed back about a month.

INSTRUMENTS, as well as training and per-
suasion) KATIA (SWEET VOCALS, during her
summer holidays) ELAINE (SPECIAL ASSIST-
@SONG: Remission
Another day is another life, another way
is another wound... Heavy blows will
break your bones, battle cry, battle cry,
and the flames will burn your sins, chil-
dish tears, childish tears. Remission, die!
die!... Another life is another scream,
another death is another cross.
@SONG: I Have Lost Your Eyes
You walk in the sham abyss, only way up to the
wheels, the skin broken by tears, you grovel,
blind and naked, searching for two twinkling
@SONG: Will You Live Again?
Time passed too quickly to see you again
when you were waiting between life and
death.  I didn't hear your screams, which
nevertheless tore the night, tore the night.
O, will you live, will you live again?  O,
will you live, will you live again?  In the
devestated space of my memories, your passage
is marked by a cross.  Maybe you cursed me,
maybe you smiled at me?... No tears, no tears,
here lies my childhood...
@SONG: Long-Term Survivor
Every day, o every day, every day dissolves
your pain. Every day, o every day, every day
dissolves your shade. And you learn to walk
again, and you learn to breathe again, learn
to shout again. Every day, o every day, every
day dispels your fear. Every day, o every day,
every day dispels your doubts. You're born from
your pain again and you rise from the ashes.
And your wounds are healing over, and the blood
runs in your veins...
@SONG: Sadia (CD)
Sadia, whip me up to blood,
Sadia, be severe with me!...
Metal flashback in your eyes,
metal flashback in your dreams.
@SONG: Experiment With Tears
Knives and toys, knives and tears
criminal in spite of yourself...
Misfortunes never come singly and
you had some little fads... You
always wanted them to be naked,
too lovely and too pure, you
couldn't resist ripping them up,
couldn't resist ripping them up.
But this little black-tongued girl
you followed to do your dirty work,
led you on tortuous lanes to the
depths of Hell... Knives and toys,
knives and tears criminal in spite
of yourself...
@SONG: Shadows Of Death
I'm so young, real non-sens close your
eyes, shadows, shadows. I'm a wounded
animal, close your eyes, shadows,
shadows. I'm so fragile in your hands,
close my eyes, shadows, shadows.
@SONG: Cathodic Funeral (CD)
Not being thirsty for their tears anymore,
steel runs down children's eyes, down chil-
dren's eyes. You just have to switch off,
switch off to live again, just have to turn
away your head to root out anguish, to hit
the screen with a stone, but where can you
find a stone? Neither staring at the images
of pain, nor at the blood spurted out of the
sharp wounds. Endless corridor towards the
bulb, where the punishments and tortures are
built up. You close the curtains, you switch
off the light; in your hand you hold a stone.
While execution wheel rotates in your mind,
I follow the edge of the knife. While the
systems rumble, the fiendish diaphragm closes
up on you : absolute clarity. You close the
curtains, you switch off the light, you turn
away your head, then you hold a stone... But
why do you hit your head, why do you hit
your head...?
@SONG: Praise Of Stake
Why do you cry, why do you scream?
Why do you die, why do you spill?
Why do you slur, why do you smir?
Why do you cry, why do you scream?
Incest crime, incest crime...
@SONG: Immaculee
Verzeihe meinen Augen, die sich schliessen,
Sternensplitter in meinem Herzen, unterwegs
habe ich die Erinnerung an deine Haende
verloren. Unaufhoerlich betrueben sich meine
Vorstellungen. Mir ist kalt bis zum Kern
der Nieren, als der Schleier sich ploetzlich
faerbt, gebe ich mich Deinen Seelenschmerzen
hin. die Unbefleckte.
[translation of Immaculee:
 Forgive my eyes which close,
 starsplinters in my hearts,
 on the way I lost the memory of your hands.  Continually
 my illusions are grieving. I am cold to my core, when the mist
 suddenly colourises, I abandon to your soul-pain.
 The undefiled.

  There was a limited run of the LP including a bonus 7" that contains the

Ned writes:
Obviously he's wrong about "Sadia" and "Cathodic Funeral", they appear on
the bonus 7".  All the lyrics/writings are also printed (they're long, I
can transcribe them if you want...) My copy has a price sticker on it, 70F.
 I think that's fairly cheap, for France, the equivalent of about US$14 or
22DM.  Standard new price.

"Les eils gris de cette petite fille jettent une ombre grise
sur sa joue. Elle a le sourire ironique et rusé de ceux qui en
savent long. Deux boucles défrisées encadrent son visage,
descendent jusqu'aux festons de la chemise relevée sous
le ausselles et qui dévoile un ventre du même blanc bleuté
qu'on voit à certaines procelaines de Chine. Le mont de
Vénus, trés plat, trés lisse, luit légèrement sous la lumière
de la lampe; on dirait qu'un film de sueur le recouvre.
J'ai écarté les cuisses pur contempler la vulve minee
comme une cicatriee, axu lèves transparentes dùn mauve
pále. Mais il me faudra attendre encore quelques heures
car, pour l'instant, tout le corps est encore un peur rigide,
un peu crispé, jusqu'à ce que la chaleur de la chambre
l'amollisse comme une cire. J'attendrai done. Cette petite
fille en vaut la peine. C'est vraiment une très belle morte.

You can't recognize on the record which name is the band/project name and
which name is the title. Since SA123 is also one of the track names, I

 * comment:
Following "Confessions" and "Tears of eros", Die Form renews their dark
link by creating yet another of theri unique visions with "Ad Infinitum",
but with a much wider range of emotions and athmospheres...

 Twisting projections out or religious imagery turn into the instrument of
fetishism and masochism, a song of praise for the shadows, a hymn on the
fascination of the heartbeating machine inside us, the game of attraction
and repulsion, impregnated with poetry and passion: the listener will
simply slip into the labyrinth...

 "We sink into the blise of darkness and will discobver in its very own
beauty". (Tanizaki Junichirô)

Die Operative Maschine
Die Form Side - Project 4
Music composed and performed by Phillipe Fichot / Die Form
Produced by Bain Total / Phillipe Fichot [p] 1993

 * comment:

 Elektrode is the new project of Philippe Fichot, mastermind behind Die
Form. This project shows his more experimental side, including mechanical
and mental landscapes.

 The drawings and paintings included in this booklet are from Eugen Plan,
an artist living in Vienna, and are a fascinating complement to the
music."Die Operative Maschine" takes a particular standpoint: treating
medical experiments as torture and being against segregation and exclusion.

 The tracks inflict pain and violence as well as express beauty and poetry
in the hope of reaction and to touch the audience to the depths of their
soul, beyond the appearances.

 * comment:

 "Rose au coeur violet" is a homage to Hans Bellmer - it is the sequel to
the anagram he wrote together with Nora Mitrani and Joe Bousquet...

 The work is a journey thorugh time and different style, taken formt he
upcoming album "Suspiria de Profundis" (Cantique, Automat 995) and
parallels the future side-project "The Visionary Garden" (Bite of Dog,
Eclipse) and three remixes (Silent Order, Slavesex, Savage Logic).

 The CD contains new photography and a geometric asthetic which is inspired
by the lines of the Bauhaus movement.

 With Suspiria de Profundis, Die Form emerge themselves deeper into the

fascination for this other so far-away world, explores new landscapes of

 Besides the vocals of Mutsumi Oku, a lot of sounds have been recorded
directly in Kyoto (in the gardens, the temples, the streets...) to create
either mediative and minimalist sequences. Personal transcription of
contrasts where are mixed violence and extreme beauty, where remain
ancestral traditions and where the time seems to speed up till naught.

 * comment:

 For students of the extreme this educational aid should not be missed.

 In this sixth side-project you will experience experimental chill oit
phases, as you learn the values of experimentation, and the importance of
relaxation, after the rigors of the previous lessons...

 Philippe Fichot, composer, performer, shows us once again how broad his
musical talents are, with this latest effort he branches off into new
areas, and shows a sensitivity for the athmospheric, which only proves him
truly the headmaster in his field.

 This audio collection is supplemented with a bookof photographic works

(the following text taken straight off the back of the disc, spelling

 all.  I did not make it up.)
'Among the French independent productions, years after years, DIE FORM has
 been able to impose a music and an image the more complete in the practice
 of "multi-media intervention" (records and cassettes, live actions,
 photographs and films...)
 Besides about a hundred participations to international compilations,
 since 1978 several records, compact discs and cassettes which are
 conspicuous by the sound and visual quality, allow to catch a glimpse of
 the peculiar universe of the group: techno-sex music, industrial electro-
 dance or more experimental futurist constructions (based on rhythms, cuts,
 sampling, treated voices and electronic sequencing).
 Perverse and subversive images, sado-masochist fascination of sexuality
 and death...DIE FORM exhibits the esthetic outrage oscillation on the
 boundary of interdicts.'

are filling up, with last red tears
which are clotting one by one on the sterile
ground ... from the crash of skulls, few
pale fragments carried by a wave, are rising;
earth is darkened by a mud on which the trees
will live again...
atrocity has its own ground: ultimate silt final feeding.
"L'homme n'est l'homme qu'à surface. Lève la peau,
dissèque: ici commencent les machines. Puis, tu te
perds dans une substance inexplicable, étrangère à
tout ce quie tu sais et qui es poutrant l'essentielle"
(Paul Valery / 1910)

Martyrium 2 (Memorial to Hiroshima)

Composed on the 50th anniversary of the Hiroshima massacre; it's dedicated
to the victims of all wars.
I started to compose the first part of Martyrium I and sampled sounds from
the audience to transform them into sounds.

Phenomena of Visitation

A few more weird stories of sin and virtue... good and bad... live and
death... shining eroticism.

Rosa Aeterna (for Robert Desnos)

Dedicated to writer Robert Desnos, who died in a concentration camp.
Hopefully it proves that petry and freedom will alway have a chance of

La Somnambule

The story of Somnambule; very suitable for another video and the live
performance of Pascale, our new dancer using Japanese Buto techniques.The
song describes live beyond sleep; very slow and melodic.

The Hate

About the dualism of love and hate.
So black are your eyes,
so dark is your spirit.
The pain of your soul, eternal lasting pleasure.

Le Reve 2

Between dream and extasy, far away from the world of rational
things...dissipated passion from a new side.

Martyrium 1 (The Lovers)

Describes the story of a romantic love: The heroine mourns for her dead
lover, his dissected skull on her knees. Something between Stendahl and
Nagisa Oshima... Stroboscopic theatre of love.

La Machine Moderne

Creeps into the moist convolutions of female extasy, body and soul -
causing a trembling feeling. The pleasure is electrifying (the joy is
discharge) and the "rape of the soul", which is similar to epilepsy (or
death), is closely connected to electricity.

La Reve 1

The instrumental landscape from a dream...

Luminary (L'áme électrique)

Describes the differences between appearance and existence of human
feelings, which has its origin in the electrifying power of human
desires.The idea of the "electric soul" dominated the scientific and
literary picture, especially until the end of the 19th century, electric
liquid, animal electricity, resurrection of dead by electrical machinery,
androids, somnambulists...


Is a kind of hallucinating trip into the depths of a mind, separated from
reality, under the influence of a complete dream, haunted by uncontrollable
images which take possession of it... close to madness.

Unreal Cinema 1

The last apocalyptic vision, composed of classical instruments and pure
sounds of machinery. Eliane opera voice forms a contrast to the terribly
hostile world and reveals real beauty at last reaching beyond reality; the
light must show through the shadow.

5.4. Concert reviews

Here's a review Ansgar wrote about the concert in Bochum/Germany, Zeche
Carl, on 08.09.94:
Sorry, at the moment this text is only available in German.
Anyone willing to translate it into English?
 Die Form (Zeche Carl, Essen - 8.9.1994)

 Angesichts der Tatsache, dass die Veröffentlichung des neuen Mini-Albums
"Cantique" [Gemeint ist wohl "Rose Au Coeur Violet"] der französischen
Lack-und-Leder-PropagistInnen Die Form für Mitte September angekündigt ist,
versprach das Konzert neues Material, so daß der Besuch der Performance in
der Essener Zeche Carl durchaus mit gehobenen Erwartungen verbunden war.
Der erste Eindruck, den das Publikums machte - bei Form-Auftritten ein
recht kritischer Faktor - war durchaus vielversprechend, so daß die
Wartezeit auf den um eine gute halbe Stunde verspäteten Beginn frohen Mutes
zugebracht wurde.

 Zunächst folgte die Ernüchterung, da das Konzert mit dem Opener "Ad
Infinitum" und dem bekannten Chrysanthemen-Video startete, also alles wie
gehabt, wobei auch noch die Konzertkarten mit dem Aufdruck "Ad Infinitum"
stigmatisiert waren. Dabei stellten sich neben der typischen Eliane-P.-
Frage (wie kriegt die Frau diese glatte Rasur hin, das habe ich in meinem
Gesicht noch nie geschafft!) mal wieder die Frage, ob es eigentlich für Sex
mit Pflanzen einen eigenen Fachterminus gibt. In der Performance waren
allerdings schon zu diesem Zeitpunkt Unterschiede festzustellen: statt im
Rollstuhl in Nonnentracht auf die Bühne geschoben zu werden, war Eliane
einfach irgendwann da (jaja, dieser Nebel!) und präsentierte sich in einem
langen schwarzen Ledermantel.

 Die Befürchtung, zum dritten mal der gleichen Show beizuwohnen, bestätigte
sich dann aber nicht, als Die Form bereits beim zweiten Stück zu
ungewohnten Klängen übergingen. Wenn das der neue Weg der Band ist, so kann
man ihn sicherlich als einigermaßen überraschend bezeichnen: die
Dancefloor- und Tekkno-Einflüsse der letzten CDs scheinen vergessen zu sein
und sind ruhigen Klängen mit fast mittelalterlich klingendem Gesang
gewichen - in dieser Form ein wenig an "In the Nursery" erinnernd. Die
Perfomance fand fast ohne Video-Unterstützung statt - lediglich ein
weiteres Video wurde vorgeführt, hinzu kamen noch Liveaufnahmen von Eliane
und dem Publikum der ersten Reihen.

 Leider mußte der positive Eindruck, den das Publikum gemacht hatte,
teilweise revidiert werden. Die Qualität der Zwischenrufe(!), die es da
gab, ließ Spekulationen aufkommen, ob vielleicht der RWE-Fanclub Essen-Nord
sein Kampftrinken in die Zeche Carl verlegt hatte (besoffen klang die
Stimme allerdings nicht) oder ob Freikarten im Kindergarten Altenessen
verteilt worden waren (wie Kinder hörten die sich aber auch nicht an).Von
daher bleibt eigentlich nur die Erklärung ueber, dass sich einige
Dumpfköpfe ins Konzert verirrt hatten, die mitbekommen haben müssen, daß
Die Form-Konzerte eine Show mit viel Sex und S/M bieten, aber davon
überrascht wurden, daß das in ein Gesamt-Konzept eingebunden ist, das
Spannern wohl eher auf die Drüsen schlägt. Glücklicherweise hatten die
Zwischenrufe, die sich zuletzt immer mehr auf das besonders einfallsreiche
"Aufhören" und "Poser"(!?) konzentrierten, irgendwann ein Ende. Gevatter
Voyeur hatte wohl die Androhung eines körperlichen Verweises in Form einer
Beule erhalten oder war endlich nach Hause gegangen.

 So konnte das Konzert seinen dreigeteilten Verlauf nehmen: zunächst gab es
vornehmlich mir unbekanntes - also vermutlich neues - Material zu hören,
nach einer kurzen Pause kamen Eliane und Philippe wieder, um ihre größten
Hits aufzuführen. Hier waren natürlich die Klassiker "Silent Order" und
"Bite of God" ebenso vertreten wie "Doctor X" von der Tears-of-Eros-CD, was
wohl den Höhepunkt des Konzertes darstellte. Die Performance beschränkte
sich auf das Form-Übliche: Eliane präsentierte ihren rasierten
Schambereich, es gab Fesselungs- und Flagellations-Andeutungen und Phillipe
spielte - wie immer ganz in Leder und mit Gasmaske auf dem Kopf, wurde er
eigentlich schonmal ohne gesehen? - mit Messern und Fäckelchen rum, wobei
die Musik größtenteils von der Konserve kam. Nur der Gesang war wie immer
teilweise live, wobei auch hier die Unterscheidung, was von der Konserve
kam und was nicht, schwer fällt - jedenfalls wichen Elianes
Lippenbewegungen teilweise schon auffällig von den hörbaren Texten ab.

 Nachdem die Form wieder die Bühne verlassen hatten und eine gute halbe
Stunde ins Land gezogen war, hatten sicherlich gute drei Viertel die Halle
verlassen und auch die anderen rechneten wohl kaum noch damit, dass Eliane
und Philippe nochmal fuer eine gute 3/4 Stunde zurückkommen sollten. In
diesem Teil gab es vor allem etwas schwereres, leicht industriallastiges
Material zu hören und der lokale Veranstalter, der sich nach Aussage von
Horst Sackreuter (Diva Performance) Penetrationen auf der Bühne verbeten
hatte, bekam auch noch eine kleine Überraschung geboten, als Philipe einen
durchaus stattlichen Dildo auspackte.

 Nach diesem Teil des Konzertes wurde durch Einschalten des Lichtes
unmißverständlich das Ende des Konzertes bekanntgegeben und der/die
geneigte FreundIn der Form hatte noch die Möglichkeit, am
Merchandising-Stand allerlei Form-Nippes und Musik zu erwerben. Der
Verfasser dieser Zeilen gab sich schließlich mit einem "Ad
Infinitum"-T-Shirt (jetzt silber auf schwarz) und einer signierten Single
(kultig, gebt's ruhig zu!) zufrieden.Das Konzertplakat, auch fuer schlappe
acht DM käuflich und signiert zu erwerben, amputierte er sich dann lieber
doch signatur- und kostenlos von einer Wand der Zeche Carl.

 Als Fazit bleibt wohl festzuhalten, dass die Diskussionen um das
Avantgarde-Duo sicherlich fortgesetzt werden werden und sich wohl nie
Einigkeit darueber herstellen lassen wird, ob die beiden jetzt
langweilig-eingefahrene ProvokateurInnen sind, eine geniale Performance
bieten oder doch etwa ein sexistisches Spektakel. Weiteres Fazit ist
allerdings mit Sicherheit, dass Die Form keine Show fuer SpannerInnen
bieten, zumindest nicht, wenn sie mit der Musik der Band nichts anfangen
koennen. Dazu trägt sicherlich besonders bei, dass es keinerlei Kontakt
zwischen Band und Publikum gibt.

 Aus diesem Grunde soll diese Mail auch in dem einen oder anderen Forum,
das sich mit Sex beschaeftigt, gepostet sein. Ein Form-Konzert ist ein
lohnendes Spektakel fuer Menschen, die Dark Electro mögen, und die nicht
meinen, dass Musik auf der Bühne handgemacht sein sollte. Solche Leute -
gegen den Sexismusvorwurf spricht übrigens der hohe Frauenanteil im
Publikum - werden an Show und Musik des Duos ihre Freude haben, während
die, die nur zum Gucken kommen wohl eher gefrustet den Heimweg antreten
müssen.Article by Ansgar Spiertz (UPH912@ZX2.HRZ.UNI-DORTMUND.DE), posted
