    Robot Koch on scoring imaginary movies, his forthcoming album and seeking inspiration in nature Dina Elsayed

 

German-born Robot Koch is dropping his new record “The Next Billion Years” on May 29. Ahead of the release, we spoke to the L.A.-based artist, producer and composer about why late French conservationist Jacques-Yves Cousteau inspired him to make the album.

Robot Koch, who spent several years living and working in Berlin before relocating to L.A., has a visual approach to his music. He says for him creating songs is “like scoring imaginary movies in my head,” and that being in nature is an important source of inspiration.
