Poetry Gabriola presents “Sound and Ideas” with Salomé Voegelin, and “Gabriola Soundscapes” by Andreas Kahre.

Swiss/UK scholar, Salomé Voegelin, introduces her ideas on sound and ‘possible world theory’. Starting from her recent book Sonic Possible Worlds (2014) and its suggestion of invisible sonic slices that show the actual world in its possibilities, she will engage in the political dimension and opportunities of such possible worlds, encouraging a political practice of the audible and of what we cannot yet hear.

The evening begins with Gabriola Soundscapes, a 4 channel sound installation based on Gabriola field recordings by Andreas Kahre.
