Apparat – Krieg und Frieden
Berlin based electronic producer Apparat just released his latest album ‘Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)’. The record is based on Leo Tolstoy’s classic war novel ‘War and Peace’ – more in particular, the music is written for Sebastian Hartmann’s contemporary theater production of this work. Just as the book, Apparat’s interpretation is epic and non-conformist.
Sascha Ring (Apparat) combined his digital sound engineering with a 30-piece ensemble, making this album a cross-over between the old and the new – just as Hartmann did with the theater production. This combination is not new for Apparat: his live shows are complemented by a cellist and a violin player.
The play ‘Krieg und Frieden’ is only to be seen in theaters in Germany, but you can replay the French invasion in Russia in your imagination – I’m sure Apparat approves. The opening and ending track of Apparat’s new album can be found below.
