Salomé Voegelin in conversation with Jennifer Walshe

Salomé Voegelin is an artist, writer and researcher 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 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. 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. “The most original compositional voice to emerge from Ireland in the past 20 years” (Irish Times) and “wild girl of Darmstadt” (Frankfurter Rundschau), composer and performer Jennifer Walshe was born in Dublin. Her music has been commissioned, broadcast and performed all over the world. She has been the recipient of fellowships and prizes from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York, the DAAD Berliner Künstlerprogramm, the Internationales Musikinstitut, Darmstadt and Akademie Schloss Solitude among others. Walshe has written a large number of operas and theatrical works, including XXX_LIVE_NUDE_GIRLS!!! an opera for Barbie dolls, and TIME TIME TIME, with the philosopher Timothy Morton. Her visual work has been exhibited in the Chelsea Art Museum, New York, Project Arts Centre, Dublin and the ICA, London. Walshe is currently Professor of Experimental Performance at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Stuttgart. At Rewire, Salomé Voegelin and Jennifer Walshe will share a conversation around written scores, the body and possible worlds.
