“"To me it´s all about whether you feel music or not. With SUBPAC I literally feel that subsonic part of my music and can control and fine tune it better in the mix." ”
Robot Koch is an award winning artist/producer/composer from Berlin, living in Los Angeles. He has been steadily crafting a remarkably mature and original sound that expertly combines a deep and cinematic atmosphere, emotional reflection and forward thinking production.
Robot Koch has become well known for his cinematic compositions, which transcend music into real living experiences. His most recent album, Sphere, took the exploration of space to new grounds that reached far beyond sound. Conceived as the soundtrack to an immersive audiovisual live show, designed in collaboration with the artist Mickael Le Goff, the project was not only a musical exploration of space, but also an observable voyage through outer space made especially to be exhibited in planetariums and full-dome venues. Sphere sold out in venues from Berlin to San Francisco, Montreal to Moscow. The project has recently been shown at Sonar Barcelona and Mutek Montreal, and won “best immersive experience” at Macon Film Festival. Koch and Le Goff are pairing up again to work on the follow up, creating another mesmerizing and immersive feast for the eyes and ears composed specifically for a 3D sound environment.
Koch`s visual music lends itself to picture and has been used on numerous TV Shows, Movie Trailers, Feature Films and Ad campaigns over the last few years. Apart from pursuing his artist career, Koch can be found working as a producer and composer for both indie and major artists worldwide, gaining gold and platinum records for his productions. He is also invited as a speaker at tech and music conferences
Koch, who won the German Music Composers Award 2014 in the category „best composer electronic music“ also runs his own label, Trees and Cyborgs, which he founded in 2016. Robot Koch´s music is an intriguing dialogue between technology and nature that seems particularly relevant to the times we live in. There is also a feeling of departure, of leaving familiar grounds to something that lies beyond,
“Maybe it sounds like traveling through space, with all the beautiful and scary moments such a journey involves,” says Koch. It is this confluence of beauty and fear that likewise grant his music a quasi-religious or shamanic motif, as the BBC’s Bobby Friction noted on Koch’s music; “it sounds like artificial intelligence discovering religion.”
