In March of 2013, students from St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN interviewed members of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet & Consociates about their involvement in the peace movement. This recording contains stories from a Sister speaking about her many years demonstrating against cluster bombs, warfare, and the School of the Americas. Also in the recording is a discussion of women’s ordination in the Catholic church. The Sister recounting her experiences was arrested multiple times and eventually jailed in 2001 for six months due to her persistent activism, but remains committed to her pursuit of peace.

Resonate-Reverberate-Roar (Re-Re-Roar) is a growing archive of original sounds that express an experimental, independent, and socially progressive spirit.  The sounds on Re-Re-Roar include field recordings, interviews, songs, speeches, experimental music, and more. Re-Re-Roar is a site for activ[ist] listening, with the purpose of distributing sounds of resistance to eager ears around the globe. Visitors are encouraged to add their own sounds of resistance to the archive through the website's submit function.

Re-Re-Roar originated from artist Elana Mann’s collection of sounds of resistance, which she began during the Iraq war in 2007 by recording commuters in Los Angeles and Iraq. The website was incubated during Mann's time as the 2013 Amy M. Sears artist-in-resident at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN, amongst a group of peace activists from the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet & Consociates. Re-Re-Roar was designed by Roman Jaster and Nicole Jaffe, with production assistance from Reilo Dahl. For more about Elana Mann visit: elanamann.com
