north east scotland's festival of new music

To Rococo Rot

To Rococo Rot first performed together in 1995, in Berlin, when Robert Lippock invited then Kreidler member, Stefan Schneider to join him and his brother, Ronald, in sound tracking an exhibition of the latter's lithographs. Even now, thirteen years later, the members sometimes refer to the music they make together as 'a project', as if rooting it all down in something more permanent could affect their forward motion.

To Rococo Rot have in the past kept things interesting through collaborations with artists like D (Darryl Moore), I-Sound (a New York DJ), Alexander Balanescu, The Pastels and St. Etienne, and from the music each of them makes outside the group, in Tarwater, and in Mapstation and other solo projects and collaborations.

But their strength is really their own relationship, in the way that their unique group plays together; in its physicality and the intuitive ways the members adapt to each others playing.
