Window is a lovely arts blog — across “writers, academics, engineers — anyone with a good idea” — out of Aukland, New Zealand. They have a good overview of Monolake, aka Robert Henke, electronic composer and musician and co-founder of Ableton.

Monolake/Robert Henke 2008

And you know what that means. Time for some video action. The first is by Lars Nagler, from his track “Layering Buddha”, which is based on Buddha Machines (you know, instead of albums entirely featuring the Tenori-On or KAOSSilator). The second is Robert showing off his Monodeck, which while not entirely practical in some ways still makes me try to think of new ways of controlling Ableton Live sets. More on that topic soon.
