ABOUT THE ARTIST
Pantha du Prince (aka Hendrik Weber) is a German-born and Berlin-based techno composer, producer, and conceptual artist. Weber describes his sound as “sonic house” music: a blend of synths, field recordings, and glitchy percussion. His breakthrough 2010 album “Black Noise” was put out by the legendary London label Rough Trade Records, which is famous for signing artists such as The Smiths and Antony & The Johnsons. The album won him the critic’s prize at the distinguished German music awards “Echo” in Berlin in 2011, and is now considered a classic of it genre because of its innovative blend of digital and natural sounds. Weber’s conceptual work has been shown at solo and group exhibitions in numerous institutions and galleries, and he recently curated an exhibition at Galerie Vittorio Manalese in Berlin. He has composed remixes and arrangements for Depeche Mode, Animal Collective, Philipp Glass, Bloc Party, Hurts, and Trentemöller, among others.
