Pantha du Prince aka Hendrik Weber
The Latest Release: 429 Hz Formen von Stille
This album, Hendrik Weber’s most ambiguous work to date, was created with acoustic instruments that were played live. The results are light patterns of frequencies and specters. A flowing interplay of overtones and a sweeping undertone at a rate of 429 Hz. Paradoxical syntheses of fantasy and rationality provoke a persistent crackling between the music and ego. Pantha Du Prince had already been more deeply invested than others in the conviction that nature is a musician that can listen and take possession of itself, and now humans and nature share the roles of transmitter and recipient on the album of Hendrik Weber.

Hendrik Weber, better known as Pantha du Prince, Panthel and Glühen 4 is a German producer, composer and conceptual artist for Electro, Techno, House, Minimal and Noise affiliated with Hamburg’s Dial music label and British label Rough Trade, where he released his famous album “Black Noise”. In 2013 Pantha du Prince and The Bell Laboratory released their first collaborative album ‘Elements of Light’. The project is a symphony for electronics, percussion and bell carillon, a three-ton instrument comprising 50 bronze bells. After his band project “The Triad” (with the album under the same title) and a remix project about the German classic composer Johann Sebastian Bach he worked on his concept of “Conference of Trees”. On “Conference of Trees”, Weber presents a unique combination of electronic music and traditional instruments as he explores and interprets the communication of trees and, based on this exploration, creates a phenomenal sound concept. Some of the sound sources and instruments were crafted by himself. It’s a breakthrough recording of experimental music, visual poetry, club-culture and speculative science. The album was released on March 6th via Modern Recordings/ BMG. Additionally, Weber has composed remixes and arrangements for Depeche Mode, Animal Collective, Philipp Glass, Bloc Party, Hurts & Trentemöller.
