Robert Henke is well known for his atmospheric techno project Monolake. He is a musician, professor of the Berlin University of the Arts and one of Ableton Live creators who helped to develop this revolutionary tool for electronic music live performances. Robert’s roots are in Berlin techno-underground of 1990s, but he’s always in the vanguard of contemporary media-art. In the recent years he’s developing his 3D laser show Lumiere.
Tarik Barri is an architect, psychologist and audio-designer by education, who creates complex 3D graphics using his own software tools Versum. Tarik has worked with Atoms For Peace , Flying Lotus, Nicolas Jaar, and is collaborating with Robert Henke for several years already, creating experimental audio-video shows and multimedia installations.
At their Mental Force performance Robert and Tarik will perform an impressive show – futuristic techno interspersed by broken rhythms and realtime visuals will add up to an audio-visual synesthesy. Robert will play his new Monolake album material that will be released in 2016.
