The Carillon in Paradise
for Paradise Place, Birmingham (UK)
by Maya Verlaak

Birmingham does not have a carillon instrument in a church tower.
Starting from September 2015, the area around Paradise Place, so also the Birmingham Conservatoire, will be demolished within the next two years. The company that puts fences around the construction area to avoid passengers walking on the construction site is called “Carillion”.

Create a waterproof plaque stating the conventional Catholic Church bell ringing hours and attach it to the fence together with a thick rope that can be pulled, if one wants to hear the carillon.
