50 church bells worldwide

In the Carillon project, CAGE100 sets its sights on a special instrument: church bells, also known as Carillon. The instruments are truly magnificent and monumental – the largest bell can weigh up to 18.5 tons. They will be played to celebrate John Cage on the occasion of his 100th birthday.

Carillons are usually found in the tops of towers, old town halls, and churches. Cage’s pieces were especially composed for these instruments and, since they are usually so prominently located, the music will ring all throughout the cities in which the pieces are played.
