The German house and techno professor has announced a series of records that will culminate in a new LP.
Robert Henke has announced the imminent release of the first Monolake material since 2012’s stellar Ghosts album. Henke has unveiled his plans for Monolake Live 2015, a “deliberately non-visual performance” based on music composed in 2014 and 2015. The material will be released in a series of 12″s (as well as digitally) over the next year before being compiled into a CD album in 2016.
According to Henke’s website, “Monolake Live 2015 is the contemporary version of a quite traditional techno live set with a strong focus on percussive elements, embedded in atmospheric walls of sound and with a lot of room for improvisation with sounds and structure.”
The first 12″ in the series is titled X I E and is due to be released later this month, although no concrete date has been set. The 12″ will arrive via Henke’s own Imbalance Computer Music imprint.
