Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. Jeremy is increasingly interested in the relationships between sound and text, which has led to the publication of an essay on the triggered soundscape, as well as an ongoing exploration of audio-literature through books and podcasts. He has worked to amplify the voices of many independent fiction writers through interdisciplinary collaboration and a focus on widening platforms for audience discovery of new literature. In 2012, he was awarded a project residency at Sound Fjord Gallery in London to create an extended work of sound poetry, a written source text and performed text manipulation.
Jeremy is a graduate of Goldsmiths College's MA in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship in London. His research identifies and maps the intangible value of access to physical space in an online commercial context, serving as a guidebook for digital start-ups and service-based organisations looking to cultivate a more engaged relationship with their consumers, clients and audiences. He has worked as a digital business strategist for Club Inégales, production coordinator for The Vision Festival/Arts For Art and a development and community engagement intern for Sound and Music. At the heart of his approach is the desire to connect people (practitioners, networks, audiences) and ideas (artforms, communications, theories) collaboratively, and experiment with the unique patterns and values that arise in between. He advises organisations on publishing projects, events, exhibitions and audience development and is currently developing an interactive online curriculum which navigates the contemporary state of the music industry for Soundfly.
In 2011, he co-founded Palaver Press, a craft sound & text publishing imprint and research unit with Catherine Métayer, and co-launched the 308at156 Project Artspace in the Flatiron District of New York City with Michael Yi. His main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. Jeremy released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand in 2015 on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain.
