First 3000 copies with bonus live CD. "This third release from Club Off Chaos, the five year running project of Jaki Liebezeit, Boris Polonski and Dirk Herweg, focuses in on a new attempt of these three exceptional musicians to melt their musical experience into an unique new style. Once again, Club Off Chaos have let the computer be where it belongs -- in the office. The music on par et impar is living proof that electronic music can create catching enthusiasm with having to be calculated and programmed ahead of time. It might be that some people attempt to think of `par et imparĀ“ as 'old fashioned' due to the use of modified drums mixed with handmade sequencer lines. These are mixed amongst novel string instruments that herald an influence reminiscent of early Kraftwerk, Neu and of course, Can. It can be said however, that the music of par et impar plays with the humorous trends of drum 'n' bass and electronic listening with touches on 80's pop-set phrases and Indian meditation sounds. Club Off Chaos create a special approach that shows through with this historic three musicians: production without the influence of current trend and a complete lack of trusting machines. Arguably though, do we listen to anti-machinelle machine-music on par et impar? The music they produce is impossible to brand as superficial, par et impar unites transcendental play with tons of humor and strange sounds...possible this is the synapse/muscle-dance-music of the third millennium."
