Ora is 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.
This month: Ora 19 : Against Interpretation
In Against Interpretation Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin borrow the title from Susan Sontag’s groundbreaking 1964 essay to read, play and perform a number of texts and sounds in close sequence and then start a conversation. Mike Kelley with Sonic Youth’s Plato’s Cave, Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile performance and an excerpt from Coil’s The Angelic Conversation featuring one of Shakespeare’s Sonnets are juxtaposed with words by Georges Bataille and Clarice Lispector, not to interpret according to given rules or expectations, but to offer a plurality of openings and possibilities into listening to sound and writing after sound.
