Monolake

Bio

Robert Henke, born in 1969 in Munich. I was always fascinated by technology, wanted to become an enigneer. Some day I discovered Oxygene by Jean Michel Jarre and I could not stop listen to it again and again. I did stupid jobs after school and finally had enough money to buy a Roland Juno-6. Now I was able to create strange electronic sound collages and I played in a bad gothic band.

I was always fascinated by technology, wanted to become an enigneer. Some day I discovered Oxygene by Jean Michel Jarre and I could not stop listen to it again and again. I did stupid jobs after school and finally had enough money to buy a Roland Juno-6. Now I was able to create strange electronic sound collages and I played in a bad gothic band.

In 1990 I moved to Berlin.City of techno and of the Elektronische Studio der Technischen Universitat.
Computer music during daytime. Dancing at night.

I started making electronic music with Gerhard Behles* and began to study sound engineering at the Hochschule fur Film und Fernsehen in Potsdam Babelsberg, where I made sound installations and film soundtracks.

One of my installations lead to my first CD Piercing Music. One of the tracks of Gerhard and me was released on Chain Reaction and we named the project

m o n o l a k e

Later I started the imbalance computer music label while Gerhard founded the software company Ableton to create music software and I joined the team.

Monolake became a Robert Henke solo project with occasional support by friends, like Torsten "T++" Profrock who added a new note to the sonic world of monolake on the album polygon_cities in 2004.

My music is about the exploration of sound, rhythm and structure, about the interaction between a sonic event and the space in which it happens. During the years monolake got more focused on music for the dancefloor while I release drones and soundscapes under my real name.
