Title: Church Bells in Tribute to the Death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Location: Queen’s University Belfast | Date: 09-09-2022 | Time: 11:47 am | Coordinates: 54.584143, -5.936088
On Friday, September 9, 2022, at 12:00 pm, various Church Bells across the UK sounded off in tribute to the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll, following her passing on September 8th, 2022.
The recording took place on the front lawn of the Lanyon Building, the main building of Queen’s University Belfast which also brought its main flag down to half-mast position. Sounds of daily life can be heard ranging from cyclists, pedestrians, motor and emergency vehicles, birds, pedestrian crossings, and other local sounds in the area.
The Church Bells were subtle and found gaps in the environmental soundscape to emerge and be heard. Each varied in duration, loudness, and placement in the listening experience. The bells mark a time of respect, change, and remembrance after a 70-year reign from the late Queen.
