Edition of 200 copies
Final Ballet, composed in 1996, is dance music for a non-existent ballet. At the time of its release by Raster-Noton
in 1998, several choreographers that Behrens had proposed the music to had rejected it angrily. The work was largely
misunderstood as another instance of the Clicks & Cuts or Glitch styles that R-N and Mille Plateaux had been associated
with at the time when, in fact, it was
a statement by an artist needing to come to terms with his own past entanglement with Techno. And regarding Techno,
the statement was final.
The original CD has long been out of print. For this edition the tracks have been remastered and the remaining four
Scenes which don't appear on the 12" are available to purchasers of the record as a complementary download.
