Julius was born in Germany in 1939 and studied fine art in Bremen. In the mid-1970s, he began using sound alongside his visual practice. Later he moved to Berlin and became an important figure in that citys budding sound art scene, participating in 1980s Für Augen Und Ohren, one of Europes first major sound art exhibitions. Over the course of a thirty-year career, Juliuss performances and low-volume sonic sculptures and installations developed an approach that became highly influential on a younger generation of sound artists.
