Various Artists: Folds and Rhizomes for Gilles Deleuze

Various - Folds And Rhizomes For Gilles Deleuze

Sub Rosa 1995.  SR99


The second of three tributes I have to the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze from the electronic music community (The first is here).  This one is slightly different as it was put together while he was alive as a present, but Deleuze committed suicide before the release.  The label, Sub Rosa feels a similar sense of affinity with Deleuze as Mille Plateaux, and the artists they present are similar: only Main and David Shea don’t appear on the Mille Plateaux tribute.

The title of the album refers to a philosophical concept Deleuze developed which fits well with the music presented.  It deals with the idea of culture being a complex web of inter-relationships rather than a hierarchical structure.  This makes it resilient because breaking or damaging parts of it has no impact because there are other connections linking the same places, but it also rejects the idea that you can trace culture back to a “root”.

Other than that, I can only repeat what I said last time – the music is from the intellectual end of 90s electronica, and is essential listening if you’re into that kind of thing.  All the tracks here are exclusives.

  1. Excited to hear this, but what kind of file is this? Couldn’t open it.

    1. Hi Peter,

      The file is rar, which you can unpack using winrar. When you’ve done that you’ll have a bunch of flac files which most decent music software will play, although perhaps not itunes. Flac is a lossless format, so if it doesn’t suit you, you can use a file converter to change it to whatever format you like. Hope it works for you.

  2. Rename the file to Delzf.rar AFTER you download and it will open then. Something is wrong with the file’s name that was uploaded.

  3. The file has “&” as part of its name. Is that causing a problem? If it is, I’ll rename it and re-upload.

  4. Now re-upped with a new filename. Hopefully that will solve these problems.

  5. Re-upped.
