Mauricio Reyes / Rolf Julius
The Lost Language of Trees – 2005

Digital Download

This extraordinary recording was created with my friend and colleague Rolf Julius. When Telekinett existed between 2002-2007 he submitted a few works for consideration.

Rolf Julius (1939-2011) was born in 1939 in northern Germany, where he received classical training in the fine arts. In the late 1970s, he gradually discovered certain contemporary composers (in particular La Monte Young, at festivals and on the radio)

In various experimental ways he explored the possibilities offered by sound broadcasting techniques, but even at this early stage (and this would be a constant factor in his approach) the works were developing with an ongoing concern for the relationship with the space of the world, and with nature. We created this sound montage which is based on my original composition “Speaking Trees” from 1999. This piece includes passages from “Raining” one of these best-known commercial works.
