Delia Casadei is interested in the ways in which non-semantic aspects of the voice—yelps, gibberish, hiccups, raspberries, and, most of all, laughter—are handled, represented, and preserved through music, writing, and sound recording. She is working on a monograph entitled "Risible Creature: Sound Reproduction at the Limit of Language."
