Daniela Cascella

Writer, author en abime, and F.M.R.L.

Daniela Cascella is a London-based Italian writer. Her work is focused on sound and literature across a range of publications and projects, driven by a longstanding interest in the relationship between listening, reading, writing, translating, recording and in the contingent conversations, questions, frictions, kinships that these fields generate, host or complicate.

As a writer who has chosen to write in a language that is not her mother tongue, she is interested in a form of writing-as-sounding that performs instabilities and oscillations.

She is the author of F.M.R.L. Footnotes, Mirages, Refrains and Leftovers of Writing Sound (Zer0 Books, 2015) and En Abîme: Listening, Reading, Writing. An Archival Fiction (Zer0 Books, 2012). Recent texts include Beginning to Write After Clarice, After Clarices (Echo and Dub Versions) in The Scofield and The Water Statues in minor literature[s].

Daniela is currently Guest Curator at Lydgalleriet Bergen, Norway, where she is developing the LYD Writing Research Residencies in collaboration with Dominique Hurth and Natasha Soobramanien. She is Contributing Editor at minor literature[s], where she initiated a new section called Untranslated, publishing reviews of books not translated in English.

She is Assistant Professor in Writing in the MA Fine Art, Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Bergen, Norway, and Associate Lecturer in the MA Sound Arts and in the MA Photography at LCC, University of the Arts London.
