Robert Henke - CBM 8032 AV

Old technology, new sounds: Berlin grandmaster of electronics presents breathtaking light and sound play with vintage computers from 1980.

Composer and software maker Robert Henke returns to the technology of his youth with the audiovisual concert CBM 8032 AV. Armed with five massive 1980 Commodore computers de Berlin grandmaster explores the beauty of simple computer graphics and lo-fi sounds. And yet the work is more than a nostalgic return to 40 years ago. “Everything could have been done already in 1980”, Henke says about the project, “but it needed the cultural backdrop of today to come up with the artistic ideas driving it.” But more than a concept, CBM 8032 AV is a breathtaking sensorial rollercoaster in monochrome green and Kraftwerk-style blips and beeps. Back to the future!
