Photo of Federation Bells, Melbourne in Australia

The Federation Bells were created for Australia's centenary celebrations in 2001, and feature 39 tuned bells that are sequenced to play music. The bells are in Birrarung Marr, a park in Melbourne, and you can wander among them as they play, which is a great surround sound experience. They don't play continuously all day: there are scheduled time slots, so do some research before visiting if you'd like to hear them. If you'd like to compose for them, the official Federation Bells website includes an online tool you can use for composing tunes, and invites you to submit your music for consideration.
