The fairytale music box of San Rocco

Aug 24, 2020, 06:53 PM

The bells of Chiesa di San Rocco have a fairytale quality to them - the kind of pealing bells you'd expect to make an appearance in something by the Brothers Grimm, ringing out over the town that forms the backdrop to their latest fable. 

To reimagine the bells, we've converted the melody of their ringing into the sounds of various music boxes and glass instruments, blended in with a woozy, reverby version of the original buried underneath and plenty of smudging, blurring effects. This transforms the bells into a magical music box that might make an appearance in our fairytale from the Brothers Grimm, promising delights, or warning of horrors for whoever opens it.
