Percussion Play Denmark have for the occasion of Carl Nielsen's 150th birthday, developed a special musical instrument where everyone regardless of musical ability can play one of Nielsen's most popular songs in Denmark "Jeg ved en lærkerede" ("I know a larks nest").
Bespoke Chimes – Outdoor Aluminium Chimes Panel
The song was originally written by Harald Alfred Bergstedt in 1921 however, in 1924 Carl Nilsen created new music for the lyrics and it became the popular song it is today, about the Danish lark which sings a very beautiful song in the summer time while it is flying high up in the sky and a child connecting with nature.
The Chimes have been installed for pedestrians to play when walking through William Werner Park. It consists of 26 aluminium chimes, which plays the melody when played from left-to-right.
The installation was paid for by the "From street to City" project.
