Monolake is an electronic music act based in Berlin. Originally consisting of members Gerhard Behles and Robert Henke, Monolake is now perpetuated by Henke while Behles focuses on running music software company Ableton, which they founded in 1999 together with Bernd Roggendorf.
With Festival Forte looming round the corner, we took the chance to catch up with Robert Henke to talk about his audiovisual laser performance Lumiere II and his involvement with the Portuguese festival.
In anticipation of Festival Forte, the organisers have released this video teaser of Robert Henke’s forthcoming open-air laser spectacle “Lumiere II”, which the German artist will perform within the bailey of the Montemor-o-Velho Castle in Portugal between 27th and 29th August.
So far, esteemed names such as Robert Henke (Monolake), Marcel Dettmann, Ellen Allien, Ben Klock, Planetary Assault Systems, Donato Dozzy, Function and Vatican Shadow have been confirmed as guests for Festival Forte.
