Ora 2 … Listening
Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin
25 July 2013

The second episode of Ora 2 begins with a lullaby that later turns out to be a lament, and it ends with a march anticipated by the refrains of memory. Salomé Voegelin and Daniela Cascella converse and prompt each other to unravel and explore the dynamics of listening in relation to the past and the present.
