Premiere performance: 05/05/2018, 11h Finissage: 30/09/2018. The heart of Olaf Nicolai’s (1962, Halle/Saale, DE) project is a musical composition for cowbells that will be performed for the very first time in Museion – each cowbell is different and has its own unique sound. While this special concert is being played inside the museum, outside it the banks of the Talvera will play host to a small herd of cows.
Carillon was conceived for Museion in Bolzano on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the new museum building. This LP documents two compositions that are part of Olaf Nicolai’s work Carillon: Isabel Mundry’s Outside in, a piece for 15 cowbells, and Carillon, the field recording of a freeform composition created by 15 grazing cows. Carillon was conceived for Museion in Bolzano on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the new museum building. The first step was the production of 15 cowbells especially for this purpose. Each cowbell is different and has its own unique sound
