Apparat, aka Sascha Ring, announces the release of "Krieg & Frieden (music for theatre)", and album of music based on Sebastian Hartmann’s theatre production of Tolstoy’s War & Peace.

Sebastian Hartmann is considered one of the big innovators of contemporary German theatre, and asked Ring to contribute to this mammoth project, which was commissioned by the renowned German arts festival Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen.

Featuring artwork by Tilo Baumgärtel, whose work forms part of the theatre production, Krieg & Frieden was recorded with Philipp Timm (cello) and Christoph Hartmann (violin), who form part of Apparat’s live band.

For Apparat, aka Berlin-based Sascha Ring, experiments in sound are strongly linked to exploring emotions. Over the course of seven album releases he has developed a multifarious, emotional universe. From early works, such as "Multifunktionsebene" (2001) and "Duplex" (2003), which took the abstractness out of electronic music and introduced a new spectrum of feelings beyond electronics’ well-tested modes, through collaborations with Ellen Alien (Orchestra of Bubbles) and Modeselektor (as Moderat), Apparat is always in transition. In 2010 he founded the Apparat Band and opened himself to a new sonic cosmos that culminated into "The Devil’s Walk" (2010), his first release on Mute.

Apparat will be touring this very special theatrical production recording live in May. Details of the tour to follow.
