Friday 22 September, 6pm.


Sound allows us to acquire an ecosystemic and planetary sensibility, since, instead of focusing on static and inert things, it makes all of these relationships audible. It makes visible all which unites them, what they enunciate and what they affect. Sound expands our perception and reveals the interstices of things; it makes sensible a world of codependencies and interdependencies, of simultaneous coexistence between environments, bodies, energies, flows and agencies.


Salomé Voegelin is a writer, researcher and artist who is interested in the relational and liminal logic of sound. In particular, it focuses on understanding how both feminist and decolonial perspectives and post-anthropocentric demands can generate different and pluralistic possibilities of knowledge that respond to contemporary crises, whether it’s about climate or public health. His books include Uncurating Sound. Knowledge with Voice and Hands (2023), and Sonic Possible Worlds (2003).


David Vélez is a Colombian sound artist living in the United Kingdom who investigates diversity and empathy in listening. For this reason, he develops artistic strategies that incorporate bioacoustic and ethnographic methodologies. His work focuses on the recording of imperceptible sounds and the non-invasive stimulation of plants with musical synthesis.


Maud Seuntjens is an independent curator and writer based in Antwerp, Belgium, focused on interdisciplinary sound art exhibitions, music programs, long-term artistic processes, workshops and educational trajectories. She is currently part of the curatorial team of Sonic Acts, an international arts organization and biennial festival, a meeting of art, theory and technology motivated by changes in the ecological, political, digital and social landscape.
