Seattle Phonographers Union: for Julius

Breaking away from their usual "politburo" performance set up, the Seattle Phonographers Union honors the recent passing of the German sound artist and composer of "small music" Rolf Julius (1939 - 2011) with a performative sound environment. While still using unprocessed field recordings as source material, group members will be spread (and in some cases moving) throughout the space, playing through small, localized sound systems to create a sonic environment made up of many smaller micro-climates, with the audience free to move through the space or sit if they wish.
