Video Interview with the Marsen Jules Trio
Shot on site during MUTEK 2010
March 01, 2011
An ambient producer who leans toward the emotive classical minimalism of Arvo Pärt and Harold Budd, Dortmund’s Marsen Jules (aka Martin Juhls) builds symphonies out of texture and repetition.
His career began in 2002 with a number of forking ambient aliases intended to explore different facets of the genre: Falter was intended to host dubbier soundscapes, while Krill.Minima grew out of his desire to develop the ambient possibilities of pop and exotica. But it has been as Marsen Jules, his outlet for classically minded ambient, that the Dortmund sound artist has had the greatest impact.
