Die Form is a French industrial and electronic band formed in 1977. The name ‘Die Form’ means ‘(the) form’ in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym ‘deform’ and on the French homonym ‘difforme’ (without form). the project is known for its innovative music and darkly erotic imagery. Live performances have involved video and film projection, live voices over pre-recorded music, Philippe Fichot is also a photographer, and creates all the album art.

Asmus Tietchens is a German electronic musician who has pursued “absolute music” through an almost mathematical process of rigid formal exercises. With strong ties to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s early electronic work, Tietchens specializes in irregular patterns of sonic abstractions that are suspended in gray drones to create cold textural voids from external references. His music is often inspired and refers to the texts of the philosopher E.M Cioran. Excellent split album with an experimental electronic Die Form and a dark electronic AsmusTietchens. Animal Instinct is the soundtrack to the movie with the same title. Face To Face Vol 1 was released on vinyl by Odd Size in 1988.
