Leader: Daniela Cascella
Cascella is a London-based Italian writer. Her research is focused on
sound and literature across a range of publications and projects, driven
by a longstanding interest in the relationship between listening,
reading, writing, translating, recording, and in the contingent
conversations, questions, frictions, kinships that these fields
generate, host or complicate.
She is the author of two books in English, F.M.R.L.
Footnotes, Mirages, Refrains and Leftovers of Writing Sound (Zer0 Books
2015) and En Abîme: Listening, Reading, Writing. An Archival Fiction
(Zero Books, 2012). Daniela initiated and curates the LYD Writing
Research Residencies at Lydgalleriet in Bergen, for which she has
invited visual artist Dominique Hurth and writer Natasha Soobramanien to
develop a series of projects in 2016/17. In December 2015 she curated,
with Rhea Dall and Martin Glaz Serup, WhereWereWe: on Intimacy, Writing,
Body, a five-day international festival of readings and performances,
for Project Art Writing Aarhus.
She is Assistant Professor in Writing in the MA Fine Art,
Bergen Academy of Art and Design, and Associate Lecturer in Sound Arts
