UNDER CONSTRUCTION / REVISION

Writing Sound is an ongoing project that reflects upon my current research focus, prompting questions on the relationship between forms of listening and writing by means of curated events, readings, workshops. It is an adaptable format which takes different shapes according to the contingent nature of each collaboration or commission.

Writing Sound is also a blog: http://enabime.wordpress.com
