WAY UP is a project that provides a platform for emerging talents, their sound and their music. In this particular video profile we introduce Rubin Henkel, a German/Canadian composer for film and media based in Berlin. Rubin was born and raised by a painter and a photographer in Cologne and because he grew up between canvases and paint, he came to understand his music as a way of painting as well, seeing tonality as colour and silence as the canvas.
Rubin‘s music usually starts with a concept and him sitting down at the piano often early in the morning. After exploring the characters, the setting or the history of the project he chooses the appropriate instrumentation.
In his debut album "Ruhe" he collected the first melodies he ever recorded with his mother's old compact camera, various iPods and sound recorders, reinterpreted those works in his Studio in Berlin and combined them to give an insight into his childhood.
