Rolf Julius - Lullaby for the Fishes LP
Rolf Julius was the archetypal sound artist. He painted with sound, he colored with pitch, and his work demands the attention and open-mindedness of those who embrace modern art. He collected found sounds, and mixed them with prerecorded single tone notes which were then, electronically modified and filtered through tiny loudspeakers, transformed into music. Depending on the surface texture where the loudspeaker has been placed - wall, floor or outdoors - these objects resonate and breathe sound. His music is a mixture of all these sounds; a carefully calculated and conceived creation. He sculpted sound to define space, creating a musical environment where subtle changes occur.
Reissue of Rolf Julius’ first and only LP from 1985. Edition of 500 copies. All compositions with the exception of 'Lied für den Morgen' are excerpts from continuously playing pieces. For example in 'Altes Klavierkonzert' I used six car speakers placing them parallel to the river: the music flowed and developed like the current in the stream.
