P.A.L. (b. Christian Pallentin, 11 May 1966, from Anthill, Germany - aka P·A·L), began experimenting with music in 1986 & met Stefan Alt in 1993, at which time he contributed a song to a compilation (on Alt’s label, Ant-Zen). Since then, Pallentin has been releasing music under the name P·A·L.
The name comes from Pallentin's last name. He has, also, contributed a compilation track under the name Pro/Against Life, has done one remixe under the name S.A.L (Stefan Alt and P·A·L), and has contributed to the projects Andxesion, and Hybryds.
P·A·L is pronounced as a single word, not three separate letters. The word may also appear as P*A*L, or PAL, but rarely Pal. P·A·L is also known for his influence on bands such as Wumpscut, who made his own version of the P·A·L track “Concrete Rage”. Decoded Feedback, also, has used P·A·L samples on their album Shockwave.
P·A·L performed at the Wave-Gotik-Treffen festival in 1996 and 2001. P·A·L has also performed at the first Maschinenfest in 1999 and returned to the annual international industrial festival in 2001 and 2006. So far he had more than 70 concerts in Europe and the United States.
