An Online Guide to Arranging for Carillon (Barnes Grant Project)
Presenter: Rachel Perfecto
In this presentation, Rachel will discuss the results of her Barnes Grant project, the creation of an online guide to arranging for the carillon. For this project, she analyzed existing carillon arrangements at the Anton Brees Carillon Library at Bok Tower Gardens, experimented with various techniques in her own arrangements, and compared the sound of these arrangements as played on different carillons. In this presentation, she will discuss her analyses, share the tips and tricks that she learned, and explain how the resulting online guide to arranging could be of interest to you and/or your students.
