Robert Henke (DE, live a/v)

Robert Henke is one of the most important figures in electronic music of the past two decades. As a half of the iconic Monolake duo, Henke is responsible for one of the first functional intertwining of dub and minimal techno.



15.9.2015 Official opening – Lunchmeat festival 2015

His influence on (not only) the club music, however, extends far beyond the boundaries of any genre. Together with Gerhard Behles (former second half of Monolake) is Henke the founder of the Ableton company, famous for its Ableton Live music production and performance software - the way their invention influenced the contemporary world of electronic music is beyond measure.

Henke’s latest project Lumière II, which will be presented at the Lunchmeat festival opening in the exclusive location, is also reaching epic proportions. A unique audio-visual composition put together by four lasers is projected onto unusually vertically oriented semi-transparent screen with a 9x8 meters size. Robert Henke himself describes his latest project as follows:

„Powerful lasers draw rapid successions of morphing shapes and connected points in space, precisely synched with carefully crafted sonic events to create a situation of total audiovisual synesthesia. Perfect geometric figures are contrasted with floating organic structures, the archaic sign language of an alien culture communicating via traces of light. Massive and overwhelming at times, fragile and delicate at others.“

Robert Henke´s performance will be a part of the Lunchmeat festival 2015 Official opening on September 15th 2015
