Song of a Bird: The Choir


October 2017,

Notte Bianca Festival, Malta



(ongoing  10-minute audio installation)



“From spending his early years with the birds, the trapper learns to call – constantly improving, learning with time. As you age, you figure out how to hone your whistle, ending up almost speaking the birds’ language. You don’t know what they’re saying, but you’re calling with them”


- Michael Grima (60), Malta 2017


The choir is composed of men who like my father studied their parts for twenty-thirty years. This is my attempt to collect, preserve and make accessible the community of those who know how to whistle like singing birds - the Maltese bird trappers, now on the other side of European law.
