sound installation (2 min 40'/ 5 min 8'), Academia Belgica, Rome, june 2018

field recording of vespers, palm reading, children, storm, bells, muezzin

part 1: the sound leads the visitor to take the academy marble stairs. Hidden in a conic metal umbrella holder, texture and amplified, churchbells and muezzin overlap, seems to twirl nearby the stairwell picture involving wedding and ambassador.

part 2 : at the starwell the visitor is called by another loud sound coming from the first floor auditorium. This large room is nearly empty, 4 speakers in each corner transmit palm reading, vespers, seagull scream, child quest. Question of spirituality, travel and flesh interact with the wall tapestries and the silent grand piano.
