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. Although the latter are rare on the UC Berkeley campus, Sather Tower is located close to the Hayward Fault Line, where a major earthquake is considered likely in the next 30 years.
This installation and performance includes a unique composition of bells (both recorded and live) and lighting modulated in real time by data from the UC Berkeley seismometer adjacent to the Hayward Fault. The title refers to the response of structures and systems to external forces.

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 🙂
