Dr. Elen Flügge is a writer, researcher and sound artist, focusing on personal and urban sound space, site specific works, and listening perspectives. After studying philosophy at Bard College, NY, she obtained a Sound Studies masters at the UdK (University of Arts) in Berlin, focusing on auditory culture and experimental sound installation.

She recently completed her PhD, “Listening Practices for Urban Sound Space in Belfast” at SARC (Sonic Arts Research Centre) at Queen’s University Belfast, UK, in cooperation with Recomposing the City research group. Her project used methods drawn from sonic arts and ethnography, such as conversational soundwalks, to explore inhabitants’ auditory experience in public spaces and consider potentials of city sound planning. Flügge has been active in numerous musical projects and ensembles, with violin as well as voice, such as HIVE experimental choir in Belfast. Her publications on sonic arts and listening include a chapter for the Bloomsbury Handbook of Sound Art (2020).

She is currently developing a soundwalk for the upcoming Klangstaetten / Stadtklaenge festival in Braunschweig 2023.
