Crépuscule presents 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 and Nina Hagen.

Of his ambitious new solo album Logic of Coincidence 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."

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 pulsing bonus remix Kant Can Dance by Dream Control, the duo formed by Zeus with former Tangerine Dream member Steve Schroyder.
