Robot Koch has become well known for his cinematic compositions, which transcend music into real living experiences.
For his album Sphere he took the exploration of space to new grounds that reached far beyond sound. Conceived as the soundtrack to an audiovisual live show with surround sound and 360 visuals, the project was not only a musical exploration of space, but also an observable voyage through outer and inner space.
Made especially to be exhibited in planetariums and full-dome venues, Sphere sold out in venues from Berlin to San Francisco, Chicago to Moscow.
The project which he created in collaboration with visual artist Mickael Le Goff has recently been shown at Sonar Barcelona and Mutek Montreal, and won “best immersive experience” at Macon Film Festival as well as "Best Dome Visuals" at the DTLA Film Festival. Koch and Le Goff continue to work on new immersive experiences, installations and films.
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. His 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.
Robot Koch has been presenting his music live over the last decade, attracting a growing audience worldwide and appearing on the lineups of major festivals like Coachella, Sonar, Mutek and played Boiler Room several times.
Apart from pursuing his artist career, Robert Koch can be found working as a producer and writer for both indie and major artists worldwide, gaining gold and platinum records for his productions. For his album Sphere Koch expanded his musical horizon even more and created an immersive Full Dome Live Show with 3D surround sound and 360 visuals, which he developed in cooperation with visual artist Mickael Le Goff. Sphere sold out in Planetariums and Festivals worldwide, winning several awards for "Best Immersive Experience".
Robert Koch, who also won the German Music Composers Award 2014 in the category 'Best Composer Electronic Music' 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. It's a constantly evolving exploration of that what lies beyond. “It's 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 grants his music a shamanic motif, as the BBC’s Bobby Friction noted on Koch’s music; "It sounds like artificial intelligence discovering religion."
