Salomé Voegelin will consider listening and sounding in its diffuse and relational materialisation as a way to imagine the legitimacy of a knowledge that is not factual but felt.
Goldsmiths´ Sound Practice Research Unit is delighted to invite you to this Zoom talk entitled "Knowledge with Voice and Hands: tending to the invisible" with Salomé Voegelin.
"the small breath drawn before speaking, sounds the moulding of air for words.
Try to use this air, this exhalation and expiration, to sing and speak with a different voice,
and tend to this voice in listening with hands ready to continue its song."
This talk hopes to explore listening as a mode of tending to and a practice of being with through which we could think knowledge as a knowing-with that does not produce evidence, as objective fact and reference, but that performs the subjective truth of participation and the autobiographical body.
Salomé Voegelin will consider listening and sounding in its diffuse and relational materialisation as a way to imagine the legitimacy of a knowledge that is not factual but felt; that is a knowing of practice and of participation, on the body from the body, where theory and practice collapse into the contingency of doing through which we know in the plural, and inclusive of science’s exclusions – its noise, its non-objective, unintelligible and unrecognisable forms - and come to generate an understanding that is mobile and contingent; that involves the knower in their cultural milieu and practice, from how they do things rather than how things are done.
Salomé Voegelin is an artist and writer engaged in listening as a socio-political practice. She writes essays, books and text-scores for performance and publication. Recently her book Sonic Possible Worlds 2014/21 appeared in a revised second edition, extending the discussion on the sonic possibility of the world to rethink normative constructions and fabulate a different body from its sound. Voegelin’s practice engages in participatory, collective and communal approaches and uncurates curatorial conventions through performance.
Voegelin is a Professor of Sound at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, and currently represents the Professorship in Sound Studies at the University of Fine Arts Braunschweig. http://www.salomevoegelin.net @soundwords_sv
