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.

Via! Usciamo, pioche non potremmo a lungo frenare in noi
il desiderio di creare finalmente una nuova realta musicale. (Away! Let us break out since we cannot much longer restrain
our desire to create finally a new musical reality).
How surprising and fine to hear again from you!
With acute ardour and accelerating heartbeats I took notice of
your recent efforts to impregnate ‘our world’ with joy and inspiration.
Never must we slacken, the global hunger for absurdity is almost unappeasable!
With respect and love,
your true and most humble servant,

Here's a few photos and (below) the film of the performance; expertly shot by Mark Birbeck and edited by my son Louie Young. Several months late - no excuses for that... but hopefully providing a flavour of the climax to an incredibly creative and challenging project. Our thanks go out to the community of Upnor(s), Fuse Medway Festival and Medway Council for their unflagging support, and to all the artists and students who took part, led workshops, performed, put themselves out on a limb for the sake of Art.
ART WILL NOT SAVE THE WORLD
