Bells hanging from spirals between towering lumbers, sounding John Cage's "Litany of the Whale" in an echoing submarine wharf warehouse strewn with white feathers fallen from the Dutch bicycles that visitors and even the security guards use to ride around the carillon installation, a UFO-like living pod, an opera-inspired boat sculpture, and a table on which visitors have left the mysterious detritus of their lives. Carillon art as it happens only in the Netherlands, this time sponsored by the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam in a special installation by Sarkis.

Hello, I was very interested in your paper on The Graphic Notation of Contemporary Organ Music I found on academia.edu. Would it be possible to read the essay in full? If there is a source on the internet you could guide me towards that'd be great. I am currently working as a researcher/arts education assistant for http://www.stjohnsorganproject.com/ and this essay would be very informative source for the project. With thanks, Harriet Cory-Wright (h.corywright@gmail.com).
