Ora 20 : Performing Silences : 26 March


Ora 20: Performing Silences
Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin
26 March 2015

As part of their ongoing collaboration, Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin were invited to perform Ora live within the context of the Science Museum Workshop Silence & Music, held in February at the Royal College of Music and organised by Tim Boon and Aleksander Kolkowski. They improvised sounds, texts, materials and voices that do not explain or interpret but practice rhythms, repetitions, coincidences and discordancies to produce aesthetic, poetic and political silences.
