Oral Site (http://www.oralsite.be) is a new open source software and platform initiated by Myriam Van Imschoot as part of her artistic work on orality, transmission and interview archives. It was developed in collaboration with Kristien Van den Brande and with a team of coders, writers and sound specialists of Sarma, Constant and Rits, who share an interest in oral and experimental publication formats. Tom Engels and Kristien Van den Brande co-edited with her the first Oral Site publication ‘What’s the Score?’ (2012), which contains alongside numerous scores a selection of research interviews that at the time they were conducted were not aiming to enter the public sphere. ‘What’s the Score?’ is the first in a series of publications on scores. Future series will focus on experimental documentation and sound–text-based artwork. In the following text, Engels proposed to Van Imschoot to entangle themselves and the reader in a dialogue without delineating explicitly the voices, discussing some of the protocols, processes and ideas running through the project.
