  • Gilles Deleuze

    GILLES DELEUZE wrote about music only in passing, yet he counted as friends and influences some of Europe’s leading composers. So it was not altogether surprising when, a few months after the French philosopher’s suicide in November 1995, Pierre Boulez held a series of concerts in his honor at the Cite de la musique in Paris. More remarkable and intriguing, though, was the appearance last spring of Deleuze tributes by two record labels on the fringe of European club culture, Sub Rosa and Mille Plateaux (the latter named after what many consider Deleuze’s magnum opus, cowritten with Felix Guattari).
