Based on Tolstoy’s 'War and Peace'

Apparat has confirmed a series of dates based on his 'Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)' project.

Real name Sascha Ring, Apparat has long admitted to influences far beyond the usual electronic music sphere. However new project 'Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)' may just be the furthest the producer has strayed from the climes of dance culture.

Inspired by a theatrical production, 'Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)' has its roots in Tolstoy's 'War And Peace'. Sebastian Hartmann’s theatre production of the Russian work seemed to capture Apparat's imagination, and asked Ring to contribute to this mammoth project, commissioned by the renowned German arts festival Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen.

Watch a video with Sascha Ring discussing the project below.

Intended to follow the progress of the play, the music prepared for 'Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)' was never intended to be released. However Apparat has decided to gather material from the project, with a full album set to be released through Mute on February 18th.

Set to play a number of live shows, Apparat will visit the UK for a one off date:
