Natural Frequencies: A new media carillon performance in honor of the 100th anniversary of UC Berkeley's Sather Tower (the Campanile)

Performing Arts - Music | February 3 | 6:30-8 p.m. |  Campanile (Sather Tower)

 

3 ten-minute live performances: 6:30, 7, 7:30


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 directly above the Hayward fault line, where a major earthquake is considered likely in the next 30 years.

The installation and performance include a unique composition of bells (both recorded and live) and lighting modulated in real time by data from the UC Berkeley seismometer inside the Hayward Fault. The title refers to the way that structures respond to external forces.
