Ora 22: F.M.R.L. / reFMRL 3
Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin, with the guest voices of Aya Kasai, Clodagh Simonds, Helena Hunter, Joanne Lee, Patrick Farmer.
8pm, Thursday 25 June
This episode of Ora is the 3rd in the reFMRL series, that challenges the conventional format of the book launch to work instead with the book as material presence, and to enhance the polyphonies that inhabit and form Daniela Cascella’s new book F.M.R.L. Footnotes, Refrains, Mirages and Leftovers of Writing Sound.
On this occasion, Salomé Voegelin has responded to F.M.R.L. through a series of questions and by selecting excerpts read in the studio by both herself and Cascella to prompt a conversation. Their voices are joined by those of guest readers, that punctuate the conversation throughout.
In order of appearance:
Clodagh Simonds is an Irish singer and composer. Her current critically acclaimed work with experimental ensemble Fovea Hex includes the NEITHER SPEAK NOR REMAIN SILENT trilogy (2006- 2009), and HERE IS WHERE WE USED TO SING (2011). http://www.janetrecords.com/
Patrick Farmer is the co-founder of the online curatorial platform, Compost and Height, and the co-editor of the new-music journal, Wolf Notes. His current work looks at the nature of the arbitrary; Farmer has begun writing compositions that primarily focus on the sound producing means rather than the sound itself, often utilising more and more fantastical methods to create sounds that are themselves, wonderfully ordinary. http://patrickfarmer.org
Aya Kasai is a researcher currently based in Oxford, UK. With a background in clinical and phenomenological psychology, her fascination lies in the mechanisms behind our appreciation of art, particularly in the use of language. She is a doctoral candidate in the School of Arts in the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University and is the founder and director of CARU, the Contemporary Arts ReSearch Unit. www.ca-ru.org
Joanne Lee is an artist, writer and publisher with a curiosity about everyday life and the ordinary places in which she lives and works. Much of her activity emerges through a serial publication, the Pam Flett Press, which explores the visual, verbal and temporal possibilities of the ‘essay’, and via the opportunities for production that arise in dialogue with creative and critical friends. www.joannelee.info
Helena Hunter is an artist based in London. Her work spans live performance and moving image. www.helenahunter.net
