Apparat，柏林人Sascha Ring的化身.继2003年的Duplex以及去年与同属柏林电子音乐体系的才女Ellen Allien联手制作的大受好评的Orchesta of Bubbles之后录制的最新个人录音室专辑.专辑以”墙”为标题并非划清界限的意思，而是聚合各种音乐元素，让它们在其中自由倘佯产生激情碰撞：弦乐与打击乐器、摇滚吉他与细锐的合成器、重复循环的敲击与强劲的鼓声在一起作一场天地大交欢。Apparat认为这张新专辑既不是概念性作品也不是精选集，而是对自己过去两年多来实践的总结，十三首曲子是在七十多件创作中精挑细选加以完善而成，因此专辑中包容了更多的不同风格。实际上，这堵"墙"是对流行电音的崭新诠释与定义，Apparat展示了作为独立电音领军人物天才的一面，层次鲜明的Glitch/IDM与Techno及迷幻的Ambient无不均折射出他对电音的高度驾驭。
Apparat is a German electronic musician (Sascha Ring) living in Berlin and one of the owners of Shitkatapult records. Starting out with dance floor-oriented techno, he later started to create ambient music and more recently became "more interested in designing sounds than beats". Recent music is closer to glitch or IDM, accompanied with classical string instruments and other sounds. The website apparat.net features a few Max/MSP patches, presumably used by him.
This record isn't really a focused and conceptual production," says Apparat. "It's more of a 'last-two-years of Apparat compilation.' That's why there's so much different stuff on it, a lot of different influences. What can I do - when I worked with Ellen we had a certain amount of time and a plan of what we wanted to do. When I made Walls I was just collecting some of the best ideas out of a folder with around 70 unfinished tracks, and finished them."
