About this Event

Dust performed by Robert Henke

Dust is a slow and intense exploration of complex textural sounds, shredded into microscopic particles, and pulsating interlocking loops, recomposed during a improvised performance.

The sources are leftovers of digital processes, material created with old analogue synthesisers, noises of all colours and flavours, field recordings; splashing waves from a shingle beach, captured on site in Australia, a massive storm, steam from my Italian coffee maker, crackles from the lead-out groove of a worn record, hum and electrical discharges from a large transformer, collected over several years, and refined and deconstructed in various ways.

During the concert, the sources are remixed, further modified and distributed in space, sometimes barely audible, sometimes very physical and intense, spanning the whole spectrum from the lowest possible rumble to ultrasound. Every performance is different and offers a intimate dialogue with the space and the audience.

Robert Henke is a composer, artist and software developer, born 1969 in Munich, Germany. He is mainly known for his contributions to contemporary electronic music, for his laser works, and as co-creator of the music software Ableton Live.

The backbone and heart of his creations are machines and algorithms, utilising mathematical rules, controlled random operations and complex feedback systems. Many of his installations change slowly over long periods of time, and are specifically conceived or adapted for unique locations. They often include elements of intentional uncertainty, resulting in not entirely predictable results, and endless variation. Most of them use laser technology combined with sound to create unique audiovisual experiences.
