Robin Plenio (he/him) is a composer, performance maker and media artist.
He studied musicology, cultural studies and applied aesthetics, staging of the arts and media as well as new compositional techniques at the University of Münster, Hildesheim and and the HfMT Hamburg with teachers like Matthias Rebstock or Alexander Schubert.
His performances and installations often utilise documentary and biographical approaches that are interwoven into the theatre machinery whilst having a strong focus on sound.
Robins post digital approach towards his artistic practice opens up a variety of artistic research fields like videogameart, artificial intelligence, sensor based performances and embodied electronic music that become part of his aesthetic repertoire. He treats compositional techniques not only as purely musical but as concepts that can be applied to video, light, movement or dramaturgy.
He understands artistic work as a collaborative and interdisciplinary process where he works in different constellations as a composer, performer, programmer, dramaturg, media artist, activist or video designer.
With collectives like boikott or muhr/plenio his work can be seen and heard at Ballhaus Ost Berlin, Internationales Sommerfestival Kampnagel, Botkyrka Konsthall, Lichthof Theater Hamburg, Sophiensaele Berlin or Schillertage Mannheim amongst others.
