ROBERT LIPPOK: (DE)
***CANADIAN DEBUT FOR ROBERT and One of only THREE North American Appearances!
Robert Lippok is a Berlin based musician and visual artist. In 1995, he
co-founded the group To Rococo Rot with his older brother Ronald and Stefan
Schneider. They have released six albums to date and Robert has four solo
releases. Warm tones and a 'soundtrack' like feel were always evident in the
TRR sound and Robert has kept this alive in his solo works as well. Robert's
sound is wonderful fusion of contemporary electronic pop and
micro-minimalism...that can easily suit a club or a gallery setting. This is
urban minimalist electronic pop. www.raster-noton.de/start.html
NAW (Neil Wiernik) began composing electronic music in 1988 with explorations
in audio art and experimental music. His progression into beat oriented sound
was a natural evolution and the results are outstanding.
"NAW is taking minimal music to deeper levels and bringing new complexities to
dub production values" - Ken Hollings WIRE (UK) July 2005
