Robert Henke (Monolake) at OSC09

Yesterday, Robert Henke from Monolake performed his Layering Buddha concert. In a gallery called Färgfabriken in Stockholm, Sweden, one of the most indulging musical experiences took place as Robert started to showcase droning and ambient material in a way that was truly unique.

In a large space, the largest gallery space in the entire building, everybody was either lying or sitting on the floor with Robert in the middle. All lights where out, and only Robert’s computer screen and emergency exit signs lit up the room.

As the sound progressed through various scapes and loops, he created an atmosphere that was mesmerising and very pure – a high quality 6 point speaker system pushed the concert further into a state of hypnosis. I was really calm and lied down on the floor, just focusing on the sounds. A moment of a true genius showcasing what he does best – sound.

    Perfect concept for presenting ambient music. I wish I was there.
