Let's Call it Love

Let's Call it Love

Triggered by the NATO bombardment of Serbia & Montenegro, Let's Call it Love features a turntable playing a track by Chet Baker which is intercepted by documentary footage of American fighter jets.

Let's Call it Love is about seduction, longing and loneliness. It is also about an overall sense of helplessness within the context of contemporary world politics.

When Let's Call it Love is staged in a gallery, sound mix equipment is used to boost low frequencies and thus balance the levels between the love song and the sound of warplanes flying over head. In this way the sound of warplanes flying overhead becomes a physical experience for the viewer.
