As part of the official launch of the Resonate, Reverberate, Roar (Re-Re-Roar) website, Elana Mann held an event at KCHUNG radio 1630 am on October 6, from 1:30-3:00pm in Chinatown, Los Angeles, CA. During the event, Mann played sounds from the archive, including a string of mic-checks and recordings from the People’s Microphony Camerata. Mann also spoke with artist John Burtle about the website and KCHUNG’s system of archiving its radio broadcasts. Later in the broadcast Mann interviewed art historian Natilee Harren about her research of FLUXUS archives, which can be found at Re-Re-Roar launch event at KCHUNG radio 1630 am (part 2). This event was the first of three launch events for Re-Re-Roar in the fall of 2013.

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:
