Konterkonzept EP by Julius Lagerfeld
“Steter Tropfen” (constant dripping) is the name of a track on the first Julius Lagerferld EP for Interdisco. And indeed, his music is wearing away the stone by a constant dripping forward, making you fidget. Says Julius Lagerfeld about his EP: “It’s a study in slowness. An attempt to create an inversely proportional correlation between speed and power. It was created by exclusively using hardware synthesizers to set a counterpoint to the prevailing approaches of laptop and software.”
Born with a lack of fashion sense, nearly transparent as a person, and perpetually about to disappear, a quote is the only connection between Julius Lagerfeld and Karl Otto the great: “I wish I was invisible.”
To make his oscillations, Julius Lagerfeld prefers machines with a tactile quality over laptops. In his studio he needs buttons, switches, potis, loose connections and analogue instability.
Living in Basel and Berlin, having moved 7 times in 5 years while struggling in bureaucratic warfare with the authorities on both the german and swiss frontiers, he finally found time to finish the Konterkonzept EP.
