Robert Lippok: Robot
We've all felt like robots, working alienating jobs, engaging in scripted conversations with others, and even at home, with our repetitive daily rituals. Robert Lippok, successfully captures the experience of robotic life on his Robot EP. As the album begins we hear the distant sound of a robot at work, sounding both mechanical and lonely. This sets the tone for the rest of the portrait. With the fluttering ambient tones and gently repetitive bass patterns of "Unexpected Behavior No. 7" and the arpeggiating synthesizers of "Silent Movement," Lippok continues to develop the feelings of isolation and solace found in a predictable existence.
