Robert Lippok’s sonic explorations and musical work channel and transform the rawness of his roots in the Industrial and Post-Punk scenes of East Germany and the newly unified Berlin, where he co-founded iconic bands Ornament, Verbrechen and To Rococo Rot. Converting all the baggage and energy into solo work resulted in broad body of work which draws that strength back to its most architectural and abstract forms. In Applied Autonomy (Raster Media, 2018), his first new release in seven year, Lippok takes a high modular technique toward a true “static frenzy”, a vanishing point at which the work acquires the energy which transforms works with all the new layers and tones, and which progresses works ultimately toward their true autonomy. Under this principle, Lippok added collaborations with Luca Gutierrez on the art and visual aspects, and with Klara Lewis on the track “Samtal”, a dual exploration of nearly fifteen minutes that extracts the sound of “applied autonomy” and juxtaposes the creative energies of both Lewis and Lippok.
