Aug. 23, 2003: At the 6th Berkeley Carillon Festival, the world premiere of “Alignments” helps launch an increasing number of new compositions that will debut at UC Berkeley for carillon and live, amplified instruments. Written by David Wessel, then-director of the campus’s Center for New Music and Audio Technologies, and performed with University Carillonist Jeff Davis, the piece features combined carillon and computer-generated sounds. Wessel died in 2014.
