★Tue 18-21 | Wed-Sun 14-19

Answer to the Call by Taloi Havini will be presented in its second utterance at der Tank curated by Chus Martínez. Answer to the Call, is a multiy-channel sound piece, which uses an ancient compositional technique that produces a dialogue between different ways of knowing through a method of a call and response. Through the inclusion of her own Hakö language and instruments that conjure her navigational ancestors, Havini moves beyond a sonic measuring of space and distance, asserting the presence of a much deeper, cyclical understanding of the ocean, space, and time. The track evolves to include archival sources, such as hydrophone recordings of sonar mapping taken on the R/V Falkor, ocean traveling chants, and an instrumental piece composed by renowned Bougainville musician Ben Hakalitz.
