|"Zone Tripper" by Friction|
Mr. Izumi Suzuki, one of our advisory board members, discussed on riff at École Normale Supérieure, where Sartre and Derrida had studied. Mr. Suzuki has been thinking about riff for a while and his had written sleeve notes of Friction's "Zone Tripper" based on his thoughts. This time his thoughts expanded: He tried to establish aethtics / systematics of riff, in applying the concept "ritournelle = refrain" by French philosophers Deleuze & Guattari to rock music. Then, for a very nice looking French philosopher Elie During who responded him in playing with "Electric Guitar Phase" by Steve Reich, Mr. Suzuki was going to play "Zone Tripper" in his PC in front of him, but he decided not to. Chicken. But he made a pitch for "ULYSSES" instead!
