CTM brings its Closing Concert to the Haus der Kulturen der Welt to celebrate its anniversary together with longtime partner transmediale, with whom CTM has worked to present one of the world’s largest annual platforms for reflection on the cultural significance of new technologies and digital culture.
The evening features frequent CTM collaborator Robert Henke, known for his peerless Monolake productions, with the German premiere of his stunning new sound and laser show, "Lumière". An exploration of the synchronicity and divergence of light and darkness, slow movements and sudden bursts of motion and noise, Lumière elevates Henke’s expertise as he commands three powerful lasers to draw repeating shapes, ephemeral objects, and ultra short pulses of light in an improvised dialogue where shapes create sonic events and vice versa.
Presented in collaboration wtih transmediale. Supported by Ableton.
Alongside the peerless, timeless Monolake releases on Chain Reaction, Robert Henke is well-known for the music he has been creating under his own name since the early 90s: ambient, experimental soundscapes featuring material developed from or intended for an installation or performance in a particular space.
