Robot Koch Uses HEDD to Zoom Into the Essence Wherever He Is

Acclaimed composer and producer Robert "Robot" Koch has long been a fan of HEDD audio and today the TYPE 07 monitors and the HEDDphone® are essential to his minimal yet sophisticated setup in his new home studio located in the hills of Los Angeles.

When Robert moved from Berlin to LA in 2014, he had already left a distinct mark in, and well beyond, Germany’s electronic scene from instrumental hip-hop to dance music, ambient to intricate live experiences. Because much of his musical output resonates so strongly with the visual and cinematographic arts, Los Angeles seemed like the perfect city for a fresh start. Subsequently, his works have been used on a whole variety of TV shows, movie trailers, Films and adverts, enabling him to deepen his relationship with specifically immersive audio technologies.

A major offspring of this new focus in his art is his full dome live show "Sphere", which won several awards and sold out in planetariums and festivals worldwide. It also won the German Music Composers Award in the category "Best Electronic Music“. Robert has also remixed Max Richter, Rammstein, and Christian Löffler, worked with Grammy-nominated Conductor Kristjan Järvi and the Nordic Pulse Orchestra, and keeps performing live on such prestigious stages such as Coachella, Sonar, and Mutek.

Instead of working out of different studios within LA, Robert decided to turn one room in his charming old house into a creative space. His sunny and calm home studio looks directly into the nature, with a setup centered around simple outboard solutions, instruments, tape players, and Ableton which helps him stay efficient and focused, even when working under deadline.
