1966 | Berlin, Germany.> website
Avant-garde German visual artist and composer Robert Lippok has been an influential player in Berlin’s thriving experimental music scene from a very early age. In 1983, he co-founded dissident punk band Ornament und Verbrechen with his brother Ronald, inspired by industrial trailblazers Throbbing Gristle.
Known for his expansive imagination, inventive rhythmic reflexes, and layers of fuzzy tones, Lippok’s solo work econmpasses a wide range for formats and genres, from the funky, glitchy, twisted techno record Redsuperstructure for Raster-Noton (2011), to stage design for operas, gallery exhibitions, and important collaborations with Italian harpist Beatrice Martini, Canadian percussionist Debashis Sinha, and the Whitetree trio, which he formed together with his brother Ronald and Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi.
Lippok is also the co-founder of the Institut für Raumexperimente e.V. at the Berlin University of the Arts, which since 2005, has been supporting artistic research and education.
