Salomé Voegelin is an artist and writer who is concerned with the practice and philosophy of sound. Her work has been shown in the UK and Mainland Europe. Most recently her voice work 'Barry Echo' has been included in 'Playing with Words, the Spoken Word in Artistic Practice', Cathy Lane ed., UK, CRiSAP and RGAP, Cornerhouse Publication, 2008. In 2007 she was commissioned to produce a site-specific sound piece for RADAR in Loughborough, UK, and produced a collaborative sound work for the Bregenz Kunstverein, Magazin 4, Austria. She is the curator of Clickanywhere, an online sound exhibition featuring sound work that focuses on the voice.
Current research includes work towards the completion of a Jerwood/Aldeburgh Music commission to develop an opera. For the opera, entitled 'Star-Shaped Biscuit', David Toop has written the libretto, composed a digital soundpiece and directed improvisation workshops with five musicians and three singers.
David's book, 'Sinister Resonance: The Mediumship of the Listener', was published by Continuum Books. This further investigates aspects of sound and the uncanny, explored through the act of listening, sound and absence, and the representation of auditory phenomena in literature, myth and the visual arts.
He is also currently researching the history, theory and practice of musical improvisation, particularly the school of free improvisation that emerged in the mid-1960s. In March 2009, he curated an exhibition for CRISAP in the LCC Research Gallery, using personal archive materials and the CRISAP holdings of London Musicians Collective archives and will now take this research further with face-to-face interviews of leading improvisers, working towards the writing of a book on improvisation.
He is investigating further the relationships of sound, listening, space, memory and oral history. Outputs of this research in 2009 included 'Peep Show', a sound work inspired by Samuel Van Hoogstraten's 'A Peepshow with Views of the Interior of a Dutch House' (1655-60), exhibited in the National Gallery's ongoing audio guide exhibition 'Sounds of the Gallery' and 'The Body Event: David Toop from John Latham', a sound piece derived from conversations with John Latham, exhibited at Flat Time House, London.
David is also investigating the materiality of sound. In 2009 he began a collaboration with photographer and filmmaker Barry Lewis, through which flow phenomena in nature are studied using close-up high definition digital video and microaudial sound. He is continuing work with 'Unknown Devices: The Laptop Orchestra', the improvising ensemble largely comprised of LCC students and graduates.
