Bell balls : (yet to be assigned)

by Nicholas Hender (2001)

Works to be held in the collection of the Australian Music Centre


This item is not commercially available from the Australian Music Centre. We regret that we cannot offer it for sale.

Work Overview

Bell Balls was created using the sound of two Chinese meditation balls. A recording of each ball was looped, and then layered at different pitches. The pitch, and as a consequence the "jingling" rate, of each layer is dynamically controlled throughout the piece. This produces an assortment of varied rhythmic and harmonic textures, interspersed by gradual transition sections.
