First International Festival
for Electronic Music and


Currently one of the most respected electronic artists in Europe, APPARAT sculpts his eclectic soundscapes from his home base of Berlin, where he co-runs Shitkatapult records. From IDM and ambient to glitch, minimal techno, and electro house, he is a perpetual explorer of the possibilities of sound. With a John Peel session under his belt, and a rock opera even, his latest full-length release entitled "Moderat" is recorded in collaboration with Modeselektor. For his live show at Gelmannica, Apparat will be joined by Berlin-based visual artist TRANSFORMA, his long time collaborator. This will be the first APPARAT + TRANSFORMA live performance to take place in Japan.
