The Monolake member talks through his work method live from the Hacklab at CTM Festival.
On a recent snowy evening in Berlin, Henke made an appearance at the MusicMakers Hacklab, a weeklong workshop at CTM 2014 that’s co-hosted by Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music. In this live interview, Henke shares his wisdom with Will Lynch and the dozens of young producers gathered before him.

The Monolake member talks through his fascinating career thus far
Robert Henke aka Monolake will feature “Dust” at a special concert called Feed . To give you an idea of what to expect Henke explained his piece as follows, “The piece I am going to perform is a version of ‘Dust’, which is based on a process called granular synthesis that allows me to take my source material – an ever growing collection of sounds I found interesting – and fragment them into millions of little pieces that I can re-arrange during the concert into highly complex and slowly evolving textures.”
The concert is taking place at Kunstwerke, Auguststraße 69, 10117 Berlin on 31.10.13. He will share the stage with other artists Lesley Flanigan and Tristian Perich. For more information go to the official event site here or over on Facebook.
Robert Henke has created a new live showed called Lumière that will be premiered this fall at the Unsound Festival in Krakow. About the performance Henke writes, “This is probably my most ambitious work so far: The creation of a complete new audiovisual performance, which includes programming, recording of sounds, composing music, figuring out what I can do – and what I want to do – with the lasers, how I want to control all this in realtime during the performance, and so on. The more I work on this project, the more I realize one thing: It is a lot of work and a huge challenge.”
Henke will continue to perform the live set through the fall at various other locations. To read full details of the performance please visit Henke’s website here.
Note to promotors: Monolake is not currently available for any bookings. New bookings will be taken on after the next album is completed. We will make an announcement when this occurs!
