On Election Day 2012 (11/6/2013), Prof. Padu Paga led a people’s mic’ed version of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, as instructed by Mikal Czech’s score, (17) People’s Mic (John Coltrane). It was performed with the help of audience members who were attending an Election Day Eternal Talk-a-thon, hosted by the Eternal Telethon within a free speech auditorium facilitated by the Bureau of Experimental Speech and Holy Theses (BESHT) at the Pomona College Museum of Art. Czech’s score, which was published in the People’s Microphony Songbook, can also be found online at UploadDownloadPerform.net.

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
