Rolf Julius; Lullaby for the fishesTochnit Aleph
TA 133 LP
Long Playing Record
Reissue of Rolf Julius's first and only LP, originally published by Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, in 1985. From Brooke Wentz's liner notes: "Rolf Julius (1939-2011) 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."
