ROBERT HENKE: MONOLAKE LIVE
“Sound as full-spectrum embrace… blending elements of techno, dubstep, and ambient.” –Pitchfork
In this special Monolake Live appearance, composer and sound shaper Robert Henke expands upon his legendary club-oriented shows to focus on the spaces between the rhythmic elements of his intensely percussive trademark sound. Subtle sonic details are brought to the forefront, and REDCAT’s immersive surround-sound technology allows Henke to highlight the spatialization of this live performance, and manipulate the timbre precisely and/or radically. Known as a co-creator of the Ableton Live software and a revolutionary figure in dance/trance sound manipulation, Henke has transcended his roots in academic and technological sound research, influencing contemporary club culture and creating a body of work that is both extremely sophisticated and wildly popular worldwide.
