About

ora

a monthly series of one-hour long debates and voyages into listening and writing
by Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin, with occasional guests

broadcast on Resonance104.4FM at 8pm GMT on the 4th Thursday of each month

Two writers and listeners meet on the grounds of their respective blogs.

Their words begin to shake those grounds. They glide along and sharpen the edges of individual listening, in a plurality of texts, voices and sounds.
Sometimes they might even remain silent, listening to other voices, or be stuck in mutual echoes and repetition.

ora: hour, pray, speak, now, aura; insight, disorder, conversation, enquiry, doubt.

Every episode will host a debate and enact a voyage with guests, words, and sounds, compositions, recordings, voices and silences, to encounter a number of issues in today’s discourse on listening.

  1. Came across this yesterday and thought you both may be interested in this too:

    Marking Language Listening Group 
    Wednesday 4 December 2013, 6:30pm
    An informal session in our new Outset Study providing an opportunity to discuss sonic themes in our current exhibition Marking Language.  The group will listen to sound works including tracks selected by Pavel Büchler and Karl Holmqvist and discuss texts by Cardew, Cixous, Cage and others to explore the relationship between the voice, language and writing.

  2. Hi there.

    I’ve enjoyed what I’ve heard so far – especially hearing women talk about sound, it’s refreshing – I do struggle to stream the audio though because of my internet connection. Is it possible to access your podcasts via Resonance?

    best wishes
    Rebecca
