The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Roberto Carlos Lange was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called "peñas" provided a foundation for Lange’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Over the last few years Lange has collaborated with David Ellis, Brian Alfred and Nene Humphrey on sound installation work. Recently he has created a series of solo sound installation pieces ranging from Music Box HVAC systems to Floating speakers that hover playing back original site specific compositions. Lange has also worked with Bear in Heaven and Julianna Barwick as well as famed music producer Guillermo Scott Herren to produce Prefuse 73 and Savath and Savalas as an active member and contributor.
