This is an electroacoustic piece featuring six of the eight bells of Turku Cathedral in Turku, Finland, plus a Haken Continuum synthesizer producing the remaining sounds. The bells were sampled and adjusted for better tuning by a maximum of half a semitone, except for some additional bell strikes that were transposed down by one full octave. The Continuum uses a custom-made sound that is not part of the built-in set. The piece itself was created as an intro for two Advent concerts, hence the dark winter theme in the video. Turku Cathedral is shown a few times.
