Generalized electronic music usually have functionalism, minimalism and futuristic commonness, these characteristics and modern architectural design art complement each other. Was born in Geneva, Techno DJ/producer, is also the parametric design and architecture scholars of EPFL (polytechnic university) Switzerland, Hendrik van Boetzelaer or called Opuswerk, shows his the creation of extraordinary wisdom at the same time with electronic music and architectural design.

With support from Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council, Opuswerk takes Arkham Shanghai – Oil Shenzhen – Lantern Beijing China Tour on January 18, 19, 20, triggered by Konekt Asia.

Opuswerk’s reputation, once a well-kept secret behind the swiss mountains, is resonating beyond those peaks, from Berlin to Moscow or Paris. Either in the studio, solo or as HISS:1292 (his collaborative project with Parisian François X), or behind the decks, he’s known for his ability to craft those very special moments where life nally makes sense. His sound, striking and poised, could be the soundtrack to the world thought by futuristic architects like Superstudio, Yona Friedmann or Zaha Hadid.

His ways to transport crowds and himself far away from the decks and the club, and the consistent quality of his dj sets have not only allowed him to play around Europe as well as for world famous clubs and fes- tivals, from the legendary Tresor (Berlin) to Mosaique (St Petersburg), and from Club Transmediale to Electron, but also earned him a resi- dency for the Techno Legends nights at le Zoo.

His solo and collaborative productions, released on labels such as Krill Music or Dement3d (as HISS:1292), have earned a place into the nest djs bags, from Donato Dozzy to DVS1 or Peter van Hoesen to Antho- ny Parasole, Daniel Avery or Dr Rubinstein. Educated by dub and drum and bass, his approach to producing is heavely relies on hands-on techniques. His dedication and love for music and gear make it so that he spends most of his time in the studio, exploring new sounds and techniques while crafting beats on the y. 2017 looks bright for Opuswerk, with upcoming releases on high pro le labels, such as ARTS, Dement3d (solo and as HISS:1292) and Semantica.
