Ora 12 … Poetics

In the 12th episode of Ora, Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin are joined by Kristen Kreider, author of Poetics and Place: The Architecture of Sign, Subjects and Site (I.B. Tauris, 2013), to discuss poetics in relation to writing and listening. The three animate a dense discussion, scrutinising notions of voicing and silent reading, sound and sense, repetition and noise, towards an appreciation of material poetics in relation to sound—a discussion dense, as ever, with a diversity of samples and examples ranging from Anton Bruhin to Denise Riley, from Roman Jakobson to Lisa Robertson, from Kurt Schwitters to Richard Kongrosian.

Ora 10 … Acousmatic

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.

For Ora 9 Salomé Voegelin and Daniela Cascella discuss archiving sound with Cheryl Tipp, Curator of Natural Sounds at the British Library in London. Their conversation engages in questions of authority and authenticity – what is included and what is kept out – explores silences and gaps – that which is uncollected and thus remains inaudible – and considers archival fictions that question and redraw the boundaries between the document and artistic imagination; public and private; fact and sentiment.
Who is archived and who is the archivist? What is archived, the bird or its sound?

Why quietude? What characterises quietude as different from silence? In the 8th, and so far noisiest, episode of Ora, Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin produce a quiet space for reflection: reading poems and listening to steps and voices, looking at erased pages and considering urban spaces, from names to translations, from echo chambers to sirens.
