The main man behind the highly influential German techno act Monolake, Robert Henke is one of electronic music's greatest innovators. Emerging from the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction label group in the mid-1990s, Monolake's minimal, dub-inspired techno helped provide the blueprint for the Berlin sound that remains dominant today. Henke co-founded the music software company Ableton with former bandmate Gerhard Behles in 1999 and is one of the primary developers of Ableton Live, the gold standard for electronic-music production and performance. As a professor of sound design and computer music performance at the Berlin University of the Arts, Henke bridges the gap between the disparate worlds of rave culture and academia.
