The Bells of Wolfhamcote Church
Click here to play a Sound Sculpture featuring the Wolfhampcote Bells
In this piece I have recorded the bells close up both with hard and soft mallets as well as from outside. From the close up sounds I removed the initial attack of the sounds leaving only the sustaining sound and harmonics. The sounds are layered to create a soft, evolving, drone like piece that fades into the real sounds of the bells recorded outside the church before returning to the soft mallet close ups.
