The End of Listening (2011)

The End of Listening (ReAwakening of a City #5)

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

In this latest solo work, I have created an immersive sound installation for iPods at a&e gallery in Cheltenham Place, Brighton. 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). 

The audience are invited to step through a theatrical curtain into a listening salon, in which rows of chairs are set out for an imaginary concert featuring a mute performer (in the form of a dummy head on a plinth) and the remaining fragments of the score of Awakening of A City by futurist artist Luigi Russolo.

The work is reviewed on criticismism and a-n interface.

Preview: Friday 7th January 2011 @ 7 – 9 pm with an exclusive performance and artists’ talk by Joseph Young, aided and abetted by Peter Faulkner.
