Visuals in electronic music sets may have become par for the course in recent years, but Berlin artist Robert Henke’s Lumière series takes this to a whole new level. Rather than simply creating a visual accompaniment to music, or a musical accompaniment to visuals, Lumière perfectly syncs glitching soundscapes with shimmering lasers to cast huge sculptures of light and sound, where music and visuals become inseparable from one another. We chat to Henke about creating work that places an equal emphasis on music and visuals, beautiful design, and preparing for the live performance of Lumière III.
