'called to response'

'called to response' is a call to listen, breathe and bodily awareness with a hauntological lens.

Accompanied on a journey by Ashanti Harris, starting indoor with enough room to lie or sit, the listener is invited to leave to place of there choosing. During the walk body awareness is called into attention, and later recorded into reflections.

Reflections are personal and ends with Harris saying the words “Listen feel the journey is yours”.
