Editorial Reviews

Originally recorded for a Peel Session in the BBC in 2004, 'Silizium EP' is a full length release from Berlin based Appatat. Known as a fluctuating mood-maker by way of his computer companion, swinging the composer's stick with emotion and conducting pieces of lonely celancholic beauty with godly discretion. Includes remixes from Bus, Telefon Tel Aviv & Rechenzentrum. Strike. 2005.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
Although he released a very limited disc of techno in 1998, Apparat first truly landed in the year 2000 with his debut release Algorythm. Since that time, he has put out a couple more albums, a couple EPs, and loads of various tracks for compilations on different labels. The Silizium EP is his newest effort and by far his most composed and unique, as he teams up with a duo of string players (on violin and cello), singer Raz Ohara, and clarinet/sax player Hormel Eastwood. The result is something that sounds like the glitchy work of Apparat past, but also moves with a newfound human element that works well at times and is completely stunning at others.

The EP is actually a studio recreation of a May 2004 Peel Session that Apparat did, and the studio time obviously gave him a bit more room to expand and flesh tracks out. The glitchy "Introduction" opens the release in a way that is familiar as crisp programming slams with hard beats and filtered melodies try to escape. "Komponent" continues down the same path at first, with warm melodies and cracking beat programming, but is soon augmented with vocals by Ohara that work quite well. The track builds and progresses with strings and horns and is some of the best vocal-based electronic pop I've heard since DNTEL's excellent Life Is Full Of Possibilities.

It's not even the best track on the short release, though, as the title track of "Silizium" again brings the organic elements of horns and strings to the front of the excellent production for an instrumental track that breaths with life. "Not A Good Place" unfortunately gets a bit more by-the-numbers as dark guitars strum and the vocals by Ohara get a bit too overenthusiastic and threaten to overshadow the more delicate parts of the track.

This EP is very innovative glitch. It still retains an underlying background tone, similar to Oval, but much more energetic. The classical instruments and singing thrown in here and there add a nice feel. A great listen. Unique stuff, I recommend it to any lovers of this area of music (Oval, Autechre, etc.)

I love the way he mixes classical string instruments with electronic glitchy stuff. Beautiful.
