Ora 16 : A Room of One’s Own



Ora 16: A Room of One’s Own

Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin

27 November 2014

This episode of Ora is the first in a new strand of Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin’s monthly series, where occasionally they will discuss a specific sound piece or text rather than a given theme. Virginia Woolf’s ‘A Room of One’s Own’ was the prompt for this new approach, leading Cascella and Voegelin to address notions of independence and the nature of spaces for listening, reading and writing; to draw parallels between female writers and composers, brought together through the idea of a ‘feminine’ practice; to talk about the implications of ‘being inside’ and ‘being outside’; to claim the importance of autonomy for listening and thinking, away from directing aims and purposes, but generating their own.
