In 2012, Apparat (Sascha Ring) began a new scope of activity with the theatre. He composed the music for a production of Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’ by Sebastian Hartmann, one of the most influential theater directors in the German speaking area. After the performance at the renowned Ruhrfestspiele and the Leipzig Theater, the work received the distinction of being invited to the Berlin Theatertreffen, which is the German-language theater equivalent of an Oscar for the movies. Apparat’s music was released as an album on Mute.
The multi-talented Murthy’s abiding passion has seen him conceive his own celebrated brand of music – a variant of house, techno and bass with influences from his upbringing of hip hop, soul, funk, disco reggae and early 90s crossover electronica music. Yet that’s not even his superpower, which lies in his dedication to all variants of his craft and his work as an author, composer, sound designer and creator. Apart from perfecting crossover forms of electronic music as a DJ in clubs and festivals, he is also a cutting edge producer and radio host for Pioneer India’s monthly radio show where he plays a unique mix of IDM, dub, electronica and indie music.
