You hear them every day. They’re a signal that you might choose to ignore, except when you’re running late. Church bells amplify across nearly town in The Netherlands but have you ever considered their sonic potential? Join us for a workshop on November 30th as part of RE:VIVE and Rewire Resonance program, to get hands on with different bells from across The Netherlands, learn how to digitally manipulate them and integrate them into your own compositions.
Resonance is a day of concerts, workshops, and discourse exploring new contexts in contemporary church music at Stevenskerk in Nijmegen. With this workshop you’ll gain access to archival recordings dating back to the 1950s of bells from church all around The Netherlands, receive a crash course in sound design from SAE music production instructor Giacomo Piscitelli aka Torgue and have your creative process pushed as you work within new limitations and structures.
