Ora at ESSA

ESSA – European Sound Studies Association Conference
University of Copenhagen, 27-29 June 2014

Ora will contribute to the 2nd annual ESSA Conference, ‘Sound Studies: Mapping the Field’, with a performative presentation entitled Listening and Writing: Sound Studies on the Radio.
Drawing from the ever-growing archive of Ora recordings, adding on new material on site, we will engage in a sustained presentation of words and sounds that will create a sound work in real time, an improvisation off the archive, a radiophonic essay.

Ora 12 … Poetics
Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin, with Kristen Kreider
26 June 2014
Resonance 104.4fm

In the 12th episode of Ora, Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin are joined by Kristen Kreider, author of Poetics and Place: The Architecture of Sign, Subjects and Site (I.B. Tauris, 2013), to discuss poetics in relation to writing and listening. The three animate a dense discussion, scrutinising notions of voicing and silent reading, sound and sense, repetition and noise, towards an appreciation of material poetics in relation to sound—a discussion dense, as ever, with a diversity of samples and examples ranging from Anton Bruhin to Denise Riley, from Roman Jakobson to Lisa Robertson, from Kurt Schwitters to Richard Kongrosian.
