Apparat - 'Krieg Und Frieden'

Apparat's got a 30-piece orchestra and an avant-garde German theatre director along for the ride

Apparat - 'Krieg Und Frieden'

8 / 10 Collaboration suits Apparat. As splendid past hook-ups with Ellen Allien and Modeselektor attest, Sascha Ring’s muse is often at its most productive when it’s given a helping tickle by others. This time, he’s got a 30-piece orchestra and an avant-garde German theatre director along for the ride, and the results are quite stunning. This 10-track accompaniment to a performance of Tolstoy’s War And Peace (yes, really) is sparse on beats but heavy on reverb-soaked drama – not ‘dance’ music by any stretch of the imagination, but beautiful all the same. Now, how about some 135bpm MDMA-o’clock remixes?
