Bells of Distance:
500 years of Sigismund Bell at Wawel Cathedral, Poland

Bells of Distance, a Sound installation that use the sound of the bell as a percussion instrument and combine it with the contemporary soundscape of the Wawel Hill is a project by artists associated with the Acoustic Activities Laboratory at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. Microphones set up in various locations will collect the sounds that were heard in various places: multilingual voices, conversations, the ringing of cathedral bells, cars passing by and other traces of Wawel Hill’s everyday life. The resulting sound material was mixed and transformed by the artists, and the resulting pieces were made available to the public via the website https://500-sigismundus.com/en/the-project/
