Born in 1982 in Bremen, Julius studied composition and acoustic communication in Berlin. While studying, he worked as a sound engineer alongside Cory Arcangel, William Basinski, and Maryanne Amacher.
Julius's work explores cross-genre interfaces between acoustic and electronic music. He combines different musical styles (like free jazz and techno) with concepts in contemporary classical music, sound, and media arts.
He looks at different modes of auditive perception and related cognitive processes. Multisensory music, he investigates by introducing interaction the between audience, visuals, spatial sound environments, and musical form.
Julius often appears on stage as a performer of live electronics. He performs in many of his pieces and has interpreted the music of his fellow composers. In recent years this practice has led to collaborations with Ensemble Mosaik, Ensemble Tzarah, and the choreographer Adam Linder.
Julius has received funding and scholarships from the Senate of Berlin, Musikfonds, INM Berlin, and the Goethe-Institut.
He presents his work at prestigious festivals and institutions. These include Wet Sounds Festival in London, Festival of Future Nows in Berlin, Centro de Cultura Digital in Mexico City, Steirischer Herbst in Graz, Ultima Festival in Oslo, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and the Goethe-Institut in Hanoi.
