Federation Bells

Birrarrung Marr, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000

Bells were once a major form of public communication. They announced the passage of time, heralded celebrations and called the faithful to worship. Today the Federation Bells at Birrarung Marr are both an art installation and public musical instrument. The bells chime at regular intervals each day, and the Federation Bells interactive website allows members of the public to devise their own musical pieces. Submit your composition and it just might be incorporated into the next performance.
