Abstract and Keywords

Salomé Voegelin contributes to current ideas on materiality, reality, objectivity, and subjectivity as they are articulated in recent texts on New Materialism. In particular she engages in the writings of Quentin Meillassoux and his fiction of an ancestral world, and expands on this with a focus on sound, since sound, she argues, supports the reimagination of material relations and processes. In order to qualify and substantiate her notion of sonic materialism, Voegelin presents listenings to works by Toshiya Tsunoda, Aura Satz, and Anna Raimondo, focusing “on the inexhaustible nature of sound that exists permanently in an expanded and formless now that I inhabit in a present that continues before and after me.”

Keywords: ancestrality, new materialism, nonanthropocentrism, sound art, speculative realism, listening sonic materialism, posthumanism, vibration
