Reality Hacking No. 197, Mountain Prayer, Willisau, Switzerland, 10 – 15 September 2002

4 stadium speakers facing the four directions were installed on the church tower in Willisau. At sunset, the recording of a traditional mountain prayer that is still practiced in some remote regions of the Central Swiss Alps could be heard in and around town. Due to numerous angry complaints from confused citizens, some even mistaking the prayer for an Islamic muezzin, the council of the Catholic Church pulled the plug on RH No. 197 on the fourth day (planned duration was 7 days).
