MUTEKLIVE139 - Monolake
Friday March 25, 2016 - Espace Reunion
Mastered by Pheek
WHO: Multidisciplinary artist and engineer Robert Henke, co-inventor of Ableton Live
STYLE: Artistic minimalist dub techno, rhythmically inventive sound design, quantum techno
MORE: Also performing his evolving laser composition Lumière III at this year’s festival Composing through technology, Robert Henke exposes the soul hiding in the machine, revealing himself as something of an heir to the tradition of German utopian futurism. At times atmospheric and cinematic, at others maniacal yet meticulously constructed – or affective and corporeal in its effects – this is quantum science as music.
A wizard of sonic physics, a masterful creator of enveloping sound environments and a consummate performer who delights in the immediacy of audience, MUTEK is pleased to present Monolake as a representative of Berlin's indisputable position as the soul centre of electronic music's past, present and future.
