Format: Audio CD
Sascha Ring's 2011 album 'The Devil's Walk' was one of my very favorite
recordings of that year. It had mixed reviews in the listening world
however and it seems likely that his new project 'Krieg und Frieden',
a collection of pieces written for a theatre adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's
great novel 'War and Peace', will find both friends and detractors too.

Not having seen the production for which this music was made I can only
offer a view based on what I have heard in these ten new compositions.
It's atmospheric stuff. Enveloping and a tad claustrophobic at times
and at others emitting considerable emotional warmth, Mr Ring appears
to have delivered his brief with clarity and imagination. As he moves
further and further away from the dancefloor which was his original
natural habitat, the mission and responsibility to make us twitch and
grind recedes to allow a serious composer possessed of considerable craft
and imagination to emerge. Writing for film may be the next logical step.

The tempi in this collection are on the whole slow and the melodic material
ponderous as befits the gravitas of its literary progenitor. The deployment
of a small string ensemble adds depth and texture to the otherwise largely
electronically generated soundscapes and appear with especially striking
effect in the mournful but affecting introduction '44' (technically expanded
and augmented in the following piece '44 [Noise Version'); 'Austerlitz', a
portentously pulsing widescreen drama and perhaps most persuasively in the
simple but beautiful 'K&F Thema (Pizzicato)' with its plaintive cello lament.

Soundtracks succeed or fail by their ability to stand up for themselves when
heard apart from their accompanying imagery. 'Krieg und Frieden' is a winner.

Highly Recommended.

Honestly I am lost for words at the power of this album. Haunting, emotional, elegant and dark..... I have been a huge Moderat fan for a while and can't believe I have only just stumbled on the solo work of Apparat. I have bought all of his other albums instantly, but this was my last purchase which I am now listening to for the 3rd time on loop since buying it. It creeps into your soul, fills you with beauty and melancholy all at once. I am addicted ........ clearly a deeply personal journey through sound by an extraordinary artist, I cannot recommend it enough, I'm absolutely in love with it

I'll get to the point here - I like Mr. Ring's music a lot. Always have. I like his music even better to drive to. It can easily transport you somewhere else whilst the car deals with the mundane task of going from A to B. This album is quite simply evocatively brilliant - particularly the opening two tracks which are segued together as one [44 + 44 noise]. Sascha's vocals can sometimes be his weak point, but again, not here.

If you love orchestral electronic bliss, you'll love this.
