Bath Festival and Bath Fringe present:
APPARAT, aka Sascha Ring, fuses tricky electronics with heartfelt and auspicious pop. LP5 is Apparat’s first release since 2013’s Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre) and follows two studio albums, II and III (Mute / Monkeytown) by Moderat, the trio he founded with Modeselektor’s Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary. This is a first taste of what to expect from the Berlin based artist. Joining the line-up on the night is Dataline. Also based in Berlin, Dataline’s music is all about capturing the moment of fluidity in electronic music performance. Make no mistake, this is not that standard hypnotic grooves for the body – it is the ego disintegrating beauty for the mind.Dataline is well-known for his demos with Elektron Music Machines along with many other brands of gear. Based in Berlin and working on the upcoming ‘Elektron Berlin Studio’ – his musical journey is all about messing around with electronic music machines to create immersive, trippy and emotional grooves. As his performances rely heavily on improvisational approaches, you can never expect the same track to be played twice. Using Elektron sequencers and a modular system for real time FX manipulations, it’s all about capturing the moment of fluidity in electronic music performance. Make no mistake, this is not that standard hypnotic grooves for the body – it is the ego disintegrating beauty for the mind.
