The EP originally released on raster-noton in 2001, it never been released on vinyl till now. and finally available again briefly on Japanese label flau’s raum series. 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.
