Lucreccia Quintanilla’s sound work Call combines various recordings of bird noises from segments in house music, dancehall, ocarinas, flutes in jazz and her own field recordings. She considers how flutes in the mesoamerica were often made and tuned to sound like birds and uses this sound collage to think through our position and responsibility to the land. Quintanilla refers to the act of careful listening and uses sound to question our relationship to place.
