    Dust is about the exploration of noisy, grainy textures and about very slow movements of seemingly static sonic material, shredded into myriads of microscopic particles. The sources are leftovers of digital processes, noises that become even noisier, or field recordings.  Stanford Dust is entirely based on recordings taken during a residency at The Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University in Spring 2013.

    Robert Henke
     was selcted as the Mohr Visiting Artist for 2013 by the Stanford Department of Music.  The Mohr Visiting Artist Program is supported by Nancy and Larry Mohr and administered by the Stanford Arts Institute.

    From the low-bit crunch of early arcade cabinets to the epic glories of orchestral game scores, music has played an incredibly important role supporting the action and storylines of video games. Music and Games is a multi-media concert featuring an eclectic collection of musical game systems, where action and interaction in game worlds creates musical sound, and where music and sound from games is reworked and repositioned to take center stage. Featuring new works by Kurt James Werner, Spencer Salazar, Mark Cerqueira, Chris Platz, and Rob Hamilton.
