The End of Listening

The End of Listening (ReAwakening of a City #5)
by Joseph Young of The Neo-Futurist Collective

a&e gallery, Cheltenham Place, BRIGHTON. Jan 7th - 23rd (weekends only)

20th April 1914: Immediately before the outbreak of the First World War, the premiere performance of a revolutionary noise symphony Awakening of a City by futurist artist Luigi Russolo.

Almost a century later, a group of artists, led by Brighton-based Sound Artist, Joseph Young, come together to respond to the surviving 7 bars of the printed score in a series of ReAwakenings.

In this latest solo work, The End of Listening (ReAwakening of a City #5), Joseph has created an immersive sound installation for iPods at a&e gallery in Cheltenham Place, Brighton.

The sound files will be available online at http://www.josephyoung.co.uk from January 7th. You are invited to download the work at home and then bring along your iPod/iPhone/mp3 player and listen to it in our “auditorium”; or alternatively, you can pick up a pre-loaded iPod at the door (limited numbers available).

Preview: Friday 7th January 2011 @ 7 - 9 pm with an exclusive performance and artists' talk by Joseph Young.
