Apparat im Kaufleuten

30. August 2011

His apparat is one with flexible functions, and its sound is as eclectic as its musical horizon is broad. Its emotional chip features an option on happiness and its sound waves are able to tear your heart apart. While sensitively orchestrating his chamber musical qualities on his records or in his studio, his live performances are known for kicking some ass! He can also proudly refer to a john-peel-session and is sporadically working with gianna nannini on a rock opera.

Sascha Ring, aka Apparat, regards his moving out of the thuringian provincial backwater to Berlin in 1997 as one of his best decisions ever made. Since 1999 he runs, together with T.Raumschmiere, the Berlin based record label “Shitkatapult” – a venturous music catapult that dashes a wild mixture of intentional great music onto the turntables of the world.

Apparat is the bridge over the german gap of melancholic glitch between manchester and laptop-usa. His smart wiring of emotions produces a virtual musical reality, which is based upon different genres, depending on the surrounding of the “apparat”. In his studio, dense, dark and majestic clouds of elegiac pop and heavy electronica built up to a coherent and emotionally charged atmosphere. Live, on the other hand, the dance floor seems to be repelled to rave from the bermuda triangle with its axes Techno, IDM and Elektro. Those styles cannot necessarily be distinguished and heard on every of his releases, but since he started out with a much harder pace of electronic music in the early nineties, his influences are definitely techno and elektro as well. The intensity in apparat’s tracks seems to grow with his own pleasure in experimenting. The charming breaking-up of the mechanical walkover of his elektronica compositions first being subtle clicks and accidental “Sound Mistakes”, this is now being done by veritable musicians and singers, by classical instruments like violin and cello, saxophone and clarinet, which are then masterly orchestrated by apparat as the maestro of his computer.

Sascha Ring is also still working on recordings and live performances with his Berlin buddies Modeselektor as Moderat and just recently started his own band. Daniel Durst (voice, guitar), Simon Berz (drums) and himself (bass, sounds and production) are still looking for a name for this newborn baby!!!
