You can close your eyes, but not your ears. Your hearing is your original vigilance system: always active to protect you in case of possible danger. When we sleep in a new room, we hear many unique unfamiliar sounds. After a while you get used to them and store them in what we call 'the safe home sounds library'. Safe because the sounds no longer wake you up and you no longer experience them as threatening. The vigilant listening turns into pure registration. 

Draftsman Charlotte Peys & sound engineer Jacob Vanneste collected these (re)discovered sounds. During their residency they will work with collected sound fragments from people at home that were recorded during the lockdown period. From these, they create 'LITANIA OF THE HOME SOUND' in image and sound - a sound ritual against lesser times.
