Three laser beams cut through the room and form geometrical shapes – floating, ephemeral, divided by frequencies. Robert Henke is at the computer behind that, controlling the interaction of shape, colour and music. He is working on Lumière, his new project, for which he is painstakingly teaching lasers to dance. For Henke, the visionary and mediator between engineering science and free-spirited art, it is not the first project of this kind: In the early nineties he co-founded Monolake with Gerhard Behles, exploring the varieties of electronic music. As the co-founder and developer of Ableton he revolutionised music production with the Live software. Since then, he’s also been working on the spectrum of audio-visual art under his own name.
6sept13 visited Robert Henke while he was developing Lumière. The result is a portrait between his past, present and future.
