Nachtschichten’ is a publication resulting from and evaluating a project into long durations on the radio, funded by the practice-based arm of the Fonds Nationale Suisse, DORE (DO REsearch), together with University of the Arts, Zürich.
Voegelin’s chapter evaluates five works produced as part of the project, by reflecting on her own listening through the night. It brings a phenomenological perspective to radiophonic discourse, working from a ‘close-listening’ over long durations, to an interrogation of time experience in night-time radio. It articulates the intersubjectivity and nonchronology of radiophonic time, as it plays out away from the day time schedule.
The chapter forms part of Voegelin’s sustained research into radiophonic practices: ‘ora: voyages into listening and writing’, broadcast monthly on Resonance104.4fm and co-hosted with Daniela Cascella, since 2013; Audio Art on the Radio symposium, (co-organiser/chair), Zürich, 2009; ‘A short history of radio listening’; and a chapter in ‘On Listening’, 2013.
