Campanella - an interactive Composition


Campanella is the Italian word for little bell.  Other Composers have written pieces, exploring the nature of bells.  Some have explored aspects of resonance, others evoke celebration or peace.  My take on Campanella is a little of both.

A delay effect was added to Piano to create the resonant sound I needed.  As the notes are echoed, some are played with more force making them more prominent.  

The piece may be heard as a solo.  Another way of interacting is by opening multiple tabs.  The result, surrounding the listener in bell sounds.  It would be interesting to have a concert, where the audience interact with the piece by performing it on their phones.  Try this with a friend and tell me the results in the comments.
