Zeus B. Held / TWI 1166 
descriptive image text here

Logic of Coincidence is a brand new studio album by Zeus B. Held, the pioneering German electronic music writer/producer who first made his name as one half of Gina X Performance, followed by collaborations with artists such as John Foxx, Fashion, Nina Hagen and Birth Control.

Recorded chiefly in Japan and Germany, Logic of Coincidence is an experimental yet highly melodic album. Luke Rhinehart provides the spoken narrative on two tracks, The Glass Bead Dice Man and Surrender Your Soul. The 66 minute album closes with a pulsing bonus remix of Kant Can Dance by Dream Control, the duo formed by Zeus with former Tangerine Dream member Steve Schroyder.

Of TWI 1166 Zeus explains: “I have always been fascinated by the mathematical and philosophical aspects of coincidence. For me, The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart is an all-time favourite book. It tells the story of a psychiatrist who begins making life decisions based on the casting of dice, and I was lucky enough to find a recording of Rhinehart himself reading from it. These are soundtracks for imaginary, usually abstract scenes – film, theatre or performance – all of which involve philosophers, thinkers and writers who dealt with issues of chance and coincidence.”

“An artier Giorgio Moroder,” wrote Uncut magazine in 2005. “The noirish synth-wave textures of enigmatic producer Zeus B. Held provide an icily futuristic backdrop for Gina’s haughty Eurodisco cabaret.”

Available on CD and download in June 2015.
