Bio: Playful, meditative, painless. The stacks of entwining loops that comprise Henry Plotnick’s music are so colourful and vibrant that they become visual - you picture them as perfect circles of dots, dashes and hues rotating, multiplying, blinking in and out.

“Henry Plotnick is 10 years old. Wait, sorry, he’s 12. By the time I’m done typing this paragraph, he’ll probably be at least 13. No matter; he was 10 years old when he performed this video entitled “Improvisation Part 1.” I stumbled upon Henry at KZSU FM’s Day Of Noise festival, 24 hours’ worth of live performances from their Stanford studio, when Negativwobblyland was on the bill. Henry evidently got clued into Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, et al, when he was about nine years old, and immediately set about composing and performing. His debut record came out at age 11. I presume he’ll be headlining Davies Symphony Hall by this time next year and being commissioned by European car companies to write “edgy jingles.””
