Calling all budding bellringers
The Grainger Museum is hosting a collaborative exhibition and performance project highlighting key innovations and experimentation in tuned percussion, focussing on Melbourne. The exhibition brings together a range of percussion instruments that have been created, composed for, and played by radical musicians who have sought to change the way we hear and play music.

Spanning the ground-breaking works of Percy Grainger, through to the contemporary work of the Federation Handbells, How it Plays also features two octaves of Federation Handbells in an interactive composition hub, where visitors can improvise their own music, or be inspired by pre-existing scores.
