SOLO WITH BAND
In Bells Lab e.a. the abbreviation e.a. stands for electro acoustic because the tour carillon sounds together with other electronic devices or backing tracks.
Jan Verheyen composed the music and also created the back tracks. It’s contemporary music inspired by the past that tries to build a bridge to the future.
TOWER AND TOUR CARILLON
The new electro acoustic music of Bells Lab was presented for the first time in 2020 during concerts on the tower carillons of Lommel, Venlo and Hahnenklee (Germany). The reactions were very positive and that’s why a lot of work is still being done to improve its quality.
The music is actually developed for the tour carillon. The première of Bells Lab e.a. on the tour carillon is scheduled at the car park of the cultural centre Casino in Houthalen-Helchteren on Sunday 14th March at 15.00.
More dates and more recordings will follow later…
