Sonorities Festival Belfast presents 'Book of Bells', an immersive sound installation by John Kefala Kerr, in the amazing setting of The Graduate School at Queen's University Belfast.
The work comprises digitally manipulated brass, voice and bell recordings that provide an acoustical context within which visitors are invited to read extracts from books and ring small bells. In blurring distinctions between actual and virtual sounds, the installation challenges the segmented nature of knowledge.
Book of Bells was originally commissioned by Durham Cathedral and Durham International Festival to mark the 2013 exhibition of the Lindisfarne Gospels
