 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 Sunday November 3, from 1:30-3:00pm in Chinatown, Los Angeles, CA. The event included a live poetry performance from Andrew Choate, a sound piece by Konrad Smolenski and Vincent Ramos called Nov 22 ’63, and a pre-recorded interview by Audrey Chan of her Grandmother and Father speaking about contemporary politics in the United States and the Communist Revolution in China. In last part of the program, which can be found at Second Re-Re-Roar Launch Event at KCHUNG Radio 1630 AM (Part 2) Elana interviews John Tain, a radio enthusiast and art historian. This event was the second 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:
