2015 - ongoing
Since 2008 Salomé Voegelin and David Mollin have developed a collaborative practice with words and sounds. Their work has a conceptual basis, establishing through texts, voices, sounds and images, conversations and reconfigurations of relationships and realities. Their work involves writing, speaking and performing, and manifests itself as a dispositif: as an audio-visual presence, a device for material processes and interactions rather than as an installation. Other outcomes exist as essays and published texts as well as tweets and talks, all of which expand the initial concepts of relationships and realities into different contexts.
Their collaborative composition Barry Echo was produced for Magazine 4, Bregenz Kunstverein in Austria 2008, and is part of the ‘Playing with Words’ book and CD Compilation edited by Cathy Lane.
Their work Ed Ruscha was presented as part of Sound Reason Festival in Delhi, India 2013, and their multichannel work Drafts has been performed at Artisphere in Washington DC, US, in Summer 2014.
Voegelin and Mollin have worked on Dustcatcher, a 3 minute sound work as album track for The Ear is a Brain Compendium by Liquid Architecture, Melbourne Australia and a text sound piece for Writing Sound 2: Writing, Listening, Performing at Lydgalleriet in Bergen, Norway in November/December 2014.
They have produced two installative works and a performance for the Kunstraum Riehen, Basel, Switzerland on show during May and June 2015 as part of Nietzsche Cyclists and Mushroom.
Voegelin and Mollin presented a ventriloquised performance of LanguagesofExile via thickear at Foundation B.a.d, Rotterdam, Sat 31 Oct. 2015. Their own performance of the piece is hosted by Sounding Out!
