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 December 1, from 1:30-3:00pm in Chinatown, Los Angeles, CA. The event included a live sewing sound performance by Frau Fiber, songs of revolution by Emily Lacy, and a sound poetry reading by Mathew Timmons. In the last part of the program Elana interviews Stacey Allan, Co-founder and Executive editor of East of Borneo, which can be found at Third Re-Re-Roar Launch Event at KCHUNG Radio 1630 AM (Part 2). This event was the third 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: elanamann.com
