About Apparat

German musician Sascha Ring, better known as Apparat, produces ambitious, emotive electronic music in styles ranging from glitchy techno to exquisitely orchestrated experimental pop. Initially known for abrasive yet melodic IDM releases such as 2002's Tttrial and Eror, Ring began to incorporate vocals and non-electronic instruments into his work starting with 2003's Duplex. Following 2006's widely acclaimed Orchestra of Bubbles (with Ellen Allien), Ring began performing his increasingly vocal-heavy compositions with a band. He also began devoting more time to Moderat, his collaboration with German techno cutups Modeselektor. Following 2011's The Devil's Walk, the most song-oriented Apparat release to date, Moderat released their second and third albums, and continued touring across the world, becoming a fixture of music festivals. Meanwhile, Ring additionally composed music for theater and film. After Moderat went on an indefinite hiatus in 2017, Ring returned to his solo career with the typically sprawling LP5 in 2019.
