Salomé Voegelin

Salomé Voegelin is a Swiss artist and writer engaged in listening as a socio-political practice of sound. Her work and writing deal with sound, the world sound makes: its aesthetic, social and political realities that are hidden by the persuasiveness of a visual point of view. She is the author of Listening to Noise and Silence: Towards a Philosophy of Sound Art (Continuum 2010) and Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound (Bloomsbury 2014). Her third book The Political Possibility of Sound, Fragments of Listening, will be published by Bloomsbury in 2018. As an artist, she works collaboratively with David Mollin (Mollin+Voegelin), in a practice that engages words, things and sound and focusses on invisible connections, transient behaviour and unseen rituals. She is a reader in Sound Arts at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
