Robert Henke is a composer, installation artist and software developer, born 1969 in Munich, Germany. He is mainly known for his contributions to contemporary electronic music and for his laser works. Coming from a strong engineering background, Henke is fascinated by the beauty of technical objects. Developing his own instruments and algorithms is an integral part of his creative process. He utilises mathematical rules, controlled random operations and complex feedback loops to build the machines driving his art. Many of his installations change slowly and over long periods, and are specifically conceived or adapted for unique locations and their individual properties. Robert Henke's musical work has a particular focus on rhythm, timbre and color, and he is recognised as a pioneering explorer of surround sound and wave field synthesis. His long term musical project Monolake, founded in 1995, became one of the key icons of a new electronic club music culture emerging in Berlin after the fall of the Wall. Robert Henke is also one of the main creators of the music software Ableton Live, which since its invention in 1999 became the standard tool for electronic music production and completely redefined the performance practice of electronic music.
