enters the game of creating a score, and although people like Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead do double time on film scores
, Sascha Ring a.k.a. Apparat has been selected by Sebastian Hartmann to do a score -- Hartmann is doing a theatre production of Tolstoy’s War and Peace as commissioned by the German arts festival Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen.
“This is anything but conventional theatre. It’s a free space, where a bunch of freaks can go wild. It starts with the lights and stops with the actual actors. At night, we worked on the music in the empty hall. It was kind of magical,” said Ring about the experience.
He collected a 30-piece ensemble in an old abandoned factory (where all of the best artistic collaborations happen, of course) in Germany and they created the music that goes with the theatre piece. The whole collection is called “Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)” and arrives via Mute Records on Feb 15/19.
The song “A Violent Sky” has a nice close to it, dropping slowly in volume while howling, echoey sounds take us out with a resurgent hi hat rhythm. It's almost like wolves in the deep background, extended over time.
