His most recent talks and performances were in Sonar+D and MUTEK (Argentina/Mexico), ZKM – Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe, NYU Berlin, exhibitions at The New Infinity | Berliner Festspiele | Immersion, XS Gallery (Poland), Aperto Raum and CTM / transmediale (Berlin, Germany).
Robert Lippok’s work in music and sound channels the rawness of his East German industrial and dissident punk and postpunk roots in both East and reunified Berlin (as cofounder of the bands Ornament und Verbrechen and To Rococo Rot).
Pouring that molten energy into his solo work, he has produced a body of music that engineers that force into an array of architectural forms. 2018’s critically acclaimed full-length “Applied Autonomy” (Raster Media) follows 2011’s “Redsuperstructure” (RasterNoton), and builds on collaborations with musician Klara Lewis (at a residency at EMS studio in Stockholm) and visual contributions by Lucas Gutierrez.
Lippok has also been relied upon as a spontaneous and inventive live music and audiovisual performer. That includes appearances at festivals like MUTEK, Unsound, L.E.V, GAMMA Festival St. Petersburg, at Berghain and Funkhaus Berlin, work with the 4DSOUND spatial audio system, collaborations with Doug Aitken at Serpentine Gallery London, choreographer Constanza Mac- ras at Akademie der Künste Berlin, German architect Arno Brandlhuber at NBK Berlin.
