RMC CPH Online Lecture | Salomé Voegelin on Listening as Strategy for Research for and from the Arts, 2nd February 2021
This was a public talk held online for the First and Second-year Master students and Third-year Bachelor students at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory (RMC) in Copenhagen.
‘Our guest is Professor Salomé Voegelin. An artist, researcher and writer engaged in listening as a political practice. Salomé presents ways that artistic and particularly sonic practices can further conventional/taxonomical knowledge processes, softening disciplinary boundaries and advocating more hybrid collaborations that challenge epistemological givens and expand what we can know.
Her work emphasises the role art plays in asking relevant and necessary questions on today’s global challenges: COVID, Climate Change, social integration, political migration, populism, etc.
On her own words: “I think the future will bring more complex responsibilities for artists and musicians, but therefore also new opportunities to bring their particular sensibilities and competencies into play, inside and outside the actual making of music and art.“
