Concerto for Brutalist Buildings

Neo Futurist Collective were invited to contribute work for an ambitious site-specific performance at the former Commonwealth Institute building (now the new Design Centre) in Kensington High Street in July 2011. The result was a suite of works celebrating the history and architecture of this splendid modernist icon, Concerto for Brutalist Buildings. Fruit for the Apocalypse produced the work for World Listening Day 2011, after 2010’s first successful collaboration with us on East London Soundscapes; supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, as part of InTRANSIT festival.

The performers were Joseph Young, Peter Faulkner and Christine Lockhart (recorded).
