Curriculum Vitae

Salomé Voegelin (*1972) is an artist, writer and researcher engaged in listening as a socio-political practice of sound. Her work and writing deal with sound, the world sound makes: the aesthetic, social and political realities that are hidden by the persuasiveness of a visual point of view. She writes essays, books and text-scores for performance and publication. Her latest book »The Political Possibility of Sound« (2018) articulates a politics that includes creativity and invention and imagines transformation and collaboration as the basis of our living together. She is a founding member of CRiSAP, the centre for Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice, and is the PI of the UK research council funded project »Listening across Disciplines II«
