Rolf Julius (1939−2011): Musik – weiter entfernt II (2009÷10)
Sound : Andreas Pysiewicz und Volker Straebel
Introduction : Sabine Sanio
Music — weiter entfernt II (2009÷10)
The surface of a sound interests me. Is it round or angular, raw or smooth, etc.? I am interested in the distance of a sound. Does it sound different close than farther away. And I am interested in the interval, the space between the sounds. How far can this space be extended, I mean, is there silence or does silence need a sound before and after. I’m interested in time, in time revolving around an object and presence, so to speak. In the concert I want to show the core of this endlessness.
The instruments I use are simple and complex at the same time. Pre-composed pieces of music are played from several iPods and mixed live, where I try to understand the space and the situation of the audience. (Rolf Julius)
Musik — weiter entfernt II was created as a commissioned work by the Electronic Studio of the TU Berlin. The première took place in 2010 as part of Ultraschall. Festival für neue Musik at Radialsystem V Berlin as a live performance. We play the authorized tape version. Rolf Julius is the namesake of the Sound Studies student scholarship.
Rolf Julius (1939−2011), born in Wilhelmshaven, studied art in Bremen and Berlin, where he lived since his participation in the exhibition Für Augen und Ohren in 1980. His installations, concerts, videos, and visual works combine the acoustic and the visual in intermodal reception. Julius belongs to the founding generation of European sound art.
