Robert Lippok is one of the most influential artists of the last 25 years on the Berlin scene. He is a founding member of the mythical To Rococo Rot, one of the most beloved projects by experimental music aficionados of all times that have successfully managed to break the boundaries between post-rock and electronic music.
This epic EP originally released on raster-noton in 2001, it never been released on vinyl till now. and finally available again briefly on Raum . New pressing now available on clear vinyl.

Open Close Open, the title of Robert Lippok's release, can obviously be seen in the context of daily maxims: instructions you can find on packagings, household appliances, stereo systems and other operating instructions. Neverthelesss, Open Close Open also stands in connection with making things like space and perception accessible to yourself - and therefore with the opening of a fictious memory. on this release, analogue field recordings, digital remains and cultural fragments are condensed into an accoustic space. the call of crows and door slamming noises meet looped sound pieces from a minidisc recorder and samples from a mahler symphony.
