The space of Writing Sound is the space of the distance between listening and writing, between being with sounds, when listening, and being distant from them, when writing. This workshop investigates the various degrees of distance from sounds, that can be enacted in writing as a response to listening. It looks at Writing Sound as an autonomous creative activity, constantly re-shaped by how we place ourselves and how we shape our memories – culturally and personally – in the absence of sounds and in the presence of every other today. Throughout the close reading of a series of texts, and a number of listening and writing exercises,
the participants will interrogate, probe and analyse Writing Sound as a critical and creative practice.
Daniela Cascella is a writer based in London and author of En Abîme: Listening, Reading, Writing (Verso Books, 2012).

Daniela as also worked extensively as a journalist and curator specialising in Sound Art, producing and curating projects for museums such as the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome and the British School at Rome.
