Café Oto is delighted to present Lost Sounds in conjunction with Rie
Nakajima and Soundfjord. Lost Sounds is the first UK exhibition of
German artist Rolf Julius and Miki Yui, both of whom work in the fields
of fine art and music.
Lost Sounds is a collaborative experiment in sound performance and installation, exploring sounds, the environment, objects and one’s visual and acoustic perception.
Split between two locations, Yui and Julius will give a concert on the 11th February, a two-day installation from 12th to 13th February at Café Oto, and subsequently, an exhibition beginning 15th February at SoundFjord. The work will remain open to the public until 5th March. Come celebrate the beginning of Yui and Julius’ collaboration with an evening concert that will form the foundations for an installation that will reside within the different architectural spaces of Café Oto and
SoundFjord. Here, one is intimately invited to delve into their world of
sound: using objects and minimal audio equipment Yui and Julius will
transform the unnoticed and under appreciated within the surroundings
into an unforgettable and intense experience.
Utilising sounds collected during their performance as a point of departure, artefacts found within Café Oto’s four walls will be given unfamiliar lives.
During the hubbub of usual café life, furniture, cutlery, utilitarian
objects and other items still to be imagined will be reinvigorated to
those that care to listen. And listen you should, for this innovative
duo is renowned for its unorthodox work with sound and intense
The installation will further develop in a migration to SoundFjord, after the two-day settlement at the café, and following on from the concert.
Produced by Rie Nakajima in collaboration with Helen Frosi of SoundFjord
SoundFjord would like to offer their condolences to Rolf Julius’ family and friends after his recent passing.
