robert lippok-redsuperstructure cd (raster-noton)

Price: $16.99


Simple sonic events are unfolding themselves, evoking the sound of a Carl Orff children's ensemble. Pleasant and strange noises join a bass foundation that recreates the ground-shaking subsonic waves of mid-'90s drum n' bass. It's like a drum major meets a Tibetan monk. They try to do a dervish thing together, elegant and funky, which forcibly drags the slowest souls out of their torpor and forces them to run and jump. Loops radiate, something is bouncing, the universe steps out of an anti-academic cloud, into your mind and the unexplored regions of our sensibility. All is good in the noosphere with Redsuperstructure. Robert Lippok's new record is based on the spectacular set he performed at Raster-Noton Electric Campfire at Villa Massimo in September of 2010. After this event, the label encouraged him (as they do every year) to re-record the material for their catalog. The events and structures of Lippok's vaudeville follow scripts which Lippok notated himself with watercolor and pencil. Other tracks were even visualized as clay sculptures. His sensitive sound syntheses are complemented by only a few samples and field recordings. On the last track, "Daylightastronomy," the accompanying harp is played by Italian harpist and composer Beatrice Martini.
