University Road, BT7 1NN Belfast
Sonorities Festival Belfast presents 'Book of Bells', an immersive sound installation by John Kefala Kerr, in the amazing setting of The Graduate School at Queen's University Belfast.

The work comprises digitally manipulated brass, voice and bell recordings that provide an acoustical context within which visitors are invited to read extracts from books and ring small bells. In blurring distinctions between actual and virtual sounds, the installation challenges the segmented nature of knowledge.

Book of Bells was originally commissioned by Durham Cathedral and Durham International Festival to mark the 2013 exhibition of the Lindisfarne Gospels

Once every 2 years, artists from more than 40 countries across the world gather in Belfast for a week of musical adventure. For over 30 years Sonorities Festival Belfast has lead the way for musicians, composers, sound artists to make and present work for curious listeners.

From 18-22 April, locations across Belfast including the most advanced music venue Ireland – The Sonic Lab – play host to all things weird and wonderful. There’ll be concerts, club nights, installations, visuals, workshops and more. Come along and experience the experimental world of Sonorities. Most events are absolutely FREE.
