Midi Street Instruments
The carillon is the instrument with the widest dynamic range of all mechanical instruments. Carillons originated in the 15th century in the low countries of Europe: Belgium, the Netherlands and Northern France and has remained largely unchanged since then. Now, 600 years later, a carillon has been modified so that it can be controlled via MIDI. This project started in the mind of Remco de Jong and with the help of Errol Vaes (curator TodaysArt Festival) it has now grown into a unique collaboration in which international contemporary composers of electronic and experimental music will explore the possibilities of this amazing instrument. The experiments with MIDI-street instruments also led to MIDI-controlled street organs. This project is so unique that several prominent artists, among which JJ Perrey, Otto von Schirach and Venetian Snares, were more than willing to compose music especially for the carillon and the street organs.
