Apparat will be on tour as part of the on-going initiative, 'Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities'. It's the same initiative under which the Indo-German Urban Mela continues to travel across the country. Last year, the initiative witnessed German electronic trio Jahcoozi performing in India. On why they are bringing him, a representative of The Goethe-Institut said, "We are bringing Apparat to India to promote intercultural music exchange, as part of the initiative that celebrates 60 years of Indo-German diplomatic ties."
The tour will be in support of Apparat's latest LP 'The Devil's Walk'. All the venues, apart from Blue Frog, have free entry on a first-come-first-serve basis. He has performed live at clubs and festivals around the world.
Before the band was formed, Apparat was the solo act of Sascha Ring and had four critically acclaimed albums to his name. He has had a few notable collaborations as well.
Talking about his music, Ring said: "Broadly speaking, I like producing richly textured, emotional electronica and heavy sci-fi soul. I like to bring the kind of euphoric melancholy that impels you to punch the air with joy while tears stream down your cheeks. The only thing I can do with the records I make is to try to somehow move people, to make them feel something."
