I had a chat with Robert Henke, dare I say it a true electronic music pioneer. Composer, artist, software developer and co-creator of Ableton Live. Founding member of Monolake, who were making techno music in Berlin back when I was most likely bopping to Kula Shaker in the indie disco, not that there’s anything wrong with that of course. But we spoke in person before lockdown, and listening back I feel an extra wistfulness in his wonderful descriptions of clubbing as a space to both lose and find yourself. Enjoy!
And also, from today, Lost and Sound goes weekly. In this strange, tough year the word lost has taken on a new unexpected meaning. But music gets me through and I honestly feel inspiration is flourishing more than ever, wether being forced to be creative about how we approach what we do or just hearing a piece of music in a new way. Sometimes talking about it is a pretty good antidote too. Let’s see how it goes. Lost and Sound, every Wednesday!
