«Un ch'tit air de carillon !»

Urban concert for carillon and church bells

The composer, musician, performer and musicologist Llorenç Barber is a tireless musical activist. A world expert in campanology, he has set cities ringing on all the continents.  For Campana, the Spanish composer is taking over all the church bells in the city centre and featuring, as soloist, the 80 bells of the Nord Pas-de-Calais mobile carillon, while singers with megaphones will join the bell-ringer musicians in the different church towers, singing out to the populace like new-age muezzins...
In this unique concert Llorenç Barber will restore a sense of togetherness to the city, with everyone, depending on their position and how much they move around, having a different experience of this atmospheric symphony ringing out from the 'urban canopy'.

Advice : to appreciate better the concert, you can go in the ascent of Chalemont (who leads to the Musée Dauphinois) or on the terraces of the Musée Dauphinois (opened to the public for this occasion).
