Hendrik Weber, better known as Pantha du Prince, Panthel or Glühen 4, was born in 1975 in Bad Wildungen, often referred to as the region's “Siberia”.
Weber, already a successful composer, producer and concept artist, published his début album as Pantha du Prince entitled "nowhere", in 2002. A few years later his first Studio album "Diamond Daze" (2004) appeared, followed by a Remix-12" ("Butterfly Girl Versions", 2005), as well as new material ("Lichten/Walden", 2006).
As Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laboratory Weber was joined by the Norwegian composer Lars Petter Hagen, developing a modern musical piece in Oslo and Berlin in 2010. In "The Bell Laboratory" Weber and Hagen investigate bells and melodic percussion, both rhythmically and tonally, set in a percussion piece for a 64 bell carillon, accompanied by a six-person ensemble. The world première of this piece was celebrated enthusiastically in August 2011 at the Oya Festival in Oslo.
In May 2012 Weber presented his new project "Ursprung", created together with Stephan Abry (who played with the artist Kai Althoff in the Kraut-Elektronika-Group “Workshop”). A performance-group will be showing this live.
In addition Weber has composed remixes and arrangements for Depeche Mode, Animal Collective, Philipp Glass, Bloc Party,Hurts and Trentemöller. Weber's work has been shown at solo and group exhibitions in numerous institutions and galleries.
