call is a sound installation created as part of a residency at the Belgian Academy in Rome. Before going to Rome I joined an archaeologist friend in Egypt, part of this installation combined field recordings of calls to prayer from these two places. Broadcast in the marble stairwell, the swirling sound carried into the auditorium where a field recording of nuns' chants mixed with crows' cries contrasted with the academic rigor of the space.
