My hometown Middelburg is celebrating its 800-years birthday. Commissioned by Foundation Middelburg 800 I'm writing a composition for the carillon of the Abbey Tower of my city. The title of the piece is MBDCCC and obviously refers directly to festivities. The notes M (i), B, C and D will play an important role.
Every month the piece will grow a little longer, in the end, in December, it will have a lenght of 2 or 3 minutes
Every month city-carilloneur Janno den Engelsman will enter the new version in the mechanism of the carillon. The piece sounds each day at 9:45 am, 12:45 pm, 15:45pm, 18:45pm and 21:45pm.
The version for March is ready.
