a violent sky

Today’s Indie: A Violet Sky / Apparat

Germany’s Apparat, aka Sacsha Ring, has released the first track off of his upcoming release, Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theater). He composed the album based on Sebastian Hartmann’s theater production of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, proving electronic artists everywhere can have brains beyond the beats. A Violent Sky is a beautiful, sprawling opus of fingers slipping across keys and slow moving, somber vocals, and it definitely has a cinematic pull to it to draw you in.

The  new record will be out next month on Mute, and Apparat had the following to say about it: “i made a record and i’m quite proud of it. It’s the first record ever that didn’t hurt at some point. It’s full of imperfection because it was made by humans… Krieg und Frieden is the theatre soundtrack i wrote last year. We went to the studio and made a bit of a weird record with not many beats and lots of drones. I hope you like it.”
