Robert Lippok: Plugin City

Workshop for limited number of participants

6. till 8. August

 

The German architect Arno Brandlhuber (http://brandlhuber.com) invited Robert Lippok some years ago, to set a previously constructed house into music. The building should be presented on a Biennale for Architecture but not in the usual way with exposed models and drawings, but purely immaterial – and that meant in this case: just acoustically.
The basic structure of the building consists of twelve modules – free linkable with each other. Used materials are concrete, steel, anodized aluminum and phosphor particles staggered with synthetic.
Lippok and Brandlhuber decided to assign to the twelve modules twelve pieces of music in order to translate the materiality into various sound qualities.


The work on this project aroused Lippok’s interest in architecture and the ability to transform her into sound. A continuous source of inspiration for him is the work of the British Architecture collective Archigram (www.archigram.net). The group was founded in the sixties of the last century, their visionary designs of themselves „inflating“ or „migrating" cities were revolutionary and act still fresh and topical.The Archigram project „Plugin City“ consists of elements, which can be connected to an urban „mega-structure“. Important city functions are housed in moveable buildings and can be transported between the different city areas whereever needed. Everything can be freely combined and so adjusted to needs of constantly changing life conditions.


With reference to Archigram’s „Plugin City“ Robert Lippok would like to develop in his workshop a musical mega-structure. Individual short compositions, sounds and melody lines are connected to a structure that can becombined again and again. At the end of the workshop three or four of such structures can be combined to form a small CD edition.
