Boomkat Product Review:
**Engrossing sound art installations** "Raining is the third instalment in the small music series and the first posthumous Rolf Julius release. The title piece "Raining" originally appeared as part of the 2007 installation "Drawing (Dot)". When played on room speakers the piece engulfs the listener in a dense world of rain, wind rattled trees, and soaked pastures full of life. However, when played int he context of the small flat speaker which Julius originally chose for the installation, the sounds become soft and cyclical patterns, similar to a lush landscape being viewed from a plane many miles above. The second piece, "Weitflächig", is an example of what Julius called "Musik für eine weite Ebene" (Music For A Wide Plain) - a method of "sketching" which allows small sounds to flourish into vast landscapes. "Music For A Glimpse Inward" originally appeared in a 2005 installation. With small speakers placed along the edge of very large empty room, the music played softly, heightening the listener's perception of space and stillness."
