Daniela Cascella "F.M.R.L. Footnotes, Mirages, Refrains and Leftovers of Writing Sound"
Daniela is an important part of the ICR team and we're delighted to offer her second book in English. Following on from her previous book, "En Abime" this is a further development of certain of the themes therein, but it is, perhaps, even more halucinatory and provoking. It will make you think about how you think, listen, read and remember. Highly recommended!

Ephemeral, F.M.R.L: A collection of fragments and essays recording accidents of hearing and detours of thought in response to the peripheral nature of listening and reading.
F.M.R.L. is a book constructed across sonic patterns, assonance, repetitions, comprising texts that intermittently drift from sense to sound and to nonsense and back.
‘Cascella is a great storyteller. Her process moves toward the abstract, theoretical or intangible from a close engagement with the sensual and with lived experience.’ (C.D. Rose, 3:AM Magazine)
‘Acknowledging our archives and inviting them to the forefront of our writing, even when those encounters are messy or confusing.’ (Kyle Steadman, Sounding Out!)
‘F.M.R.L. is a Passagen-Werk of the inner ear.’ (Craig Dworkin, author of No Medium)
