Short Bio: 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. 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,his ambient soundscapes are both soothing and inspiring.
