“Natural Frequencies” at Berkeley’s Sather Tower #MusicMonday

Video from youtube user alex turney

From goldberg.berkeley.edu via NPR:

Bell towers have been used for centuries as a medium to effectively convey time, calls to prayer and community events, and warnings about invasions, fires, and floods.

  1. Wow, a bell tower is a fantastic thing, a unique art form. The piece is a chromatic wonder, and I have to applaud the performers and concept of this endeavor. Thanks, I enjoyed it in the least, and in the most I was inspired by it 🙂
