Today's MPFree is a track from the new album by Apparat.

It's not your average album either. It's title is 'Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)', and it's an album of music based on Sebastian Hartmann's theatre production of Tolstoy's War and Peace.

Sebastian Hartmann asked Apparat (real name Sascha Ring) to contribute to this project, and after he'd spent some time with Tolstoy's original text Ring returned to Germany and spent four weeks in an old abandoned factory building and rehearsed with the whole 30-piece ensemble.

Anyway, the long and short of it is he's releasing it as an album, and here's a taster which is brilliant:
