Odekrom stems out of curious chat and a fascination to work with another. Calleja and Clare Ghigo (mezzo soprano) started this chat informally in the early months of 2019, when Clare approached Joseph with an interesting proposal to start a collaboration towards the anniversary of the Theresienstadt Ghetto. In return Joseph suggested to Clare to start exploring each other's vocabulary by making a work for a project initiated by Lateral Lab called Ways of Thinking for the Tokyo Olympiad 2020. During this initial phase they developed an audio visual approach to their collaborations. Their first two collaborative pieces have attracted support from Lateral Lab, Creative Scotland, British Council, and Arts Council Malta.

Where much of the art, music and entertainment worlds have combined and coalesced into a throbbing, teeming mass of pop culture, marketing, over-stimulation and over-consumption, de Cock is a breath of fresh air.
