It was a long-distance duet — a violist on Faculty Glade and a carillonist (UC Berkeley Carillonist, Jeff Davis) in the towering Campanile. They couldn’t see or communicate with each other, but their Thursday noontime concert, part of a music department course called Music Now, was a successful exercise in performing across a large space.

Nils Bultmann, the violist, who also is a composer says the course is about “sound literacy and listening. We study the fundamental principles of how sound works and develop vocabulary and skills to listen to and discuss sound occurring both in the physical world and in music.”
