FELD, STEPHEN: The Time of Bells Vol 4
Fourth in this excellent series of bell soundcapes. Recordings from Sardinia (including some traditional song and many sheep), Venice (St Marco on a wet Sunday), Copenhagen (the carillon through rain and traffic), Lapland (all manner of bells from bellmaker Alvi Ruonala mixed with Arctic soundscapes) and Japan (temple bells). There is also a track for Oud and modified bell recordings, and the tolling of the Peace Bell in Hiroshima on the 60th anniversary of the American devastation of that city in 1945. With a silent crowd of 60,000, and a textile factory of busy cicadas.
