Ora 10 … Acousmatic
Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin
24 April 2014

The tale of Pythagoras and his disciples, listening to his disembodied voice, is often referred to but never discussed. As an opening act in this new episode of Ora, Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin read about this initiation and come to terms with its more uneasy implications: who is allowed behind the veil? And who is allowed to listen? In discussing the acousmatic as an aesthetic and perceptual practice, issues of gender, inclusion and poetics arise.
