How to use this sample library The set of bells in Westerkerk (Westertoren) bell tower contains 50 individually tuned bells. The following are things to take note of when using them in your compositions: • There is no C#0 bell in the Westerkerk tower or C#0 bell sample since it was a very expensive bell to cast, and due to its infrequency of use at the time of it's installation, was not included in the bell tower. • If historic accuracy is not what you are after I would suggest loading the C0 twice and pitching the second sample to a C#0 to complete the chromatic scale. • The bells are sharp by about 30 cents so if you plan to use them in a sampler and want them to be in tune with A440 just adjust the tuning to -30 cents . ////////////////////////////////////////// 3. About the bell makers The brothers François and Pieter Hemony were the most important and famous casters of bells and producers of carillons in their time. They produced the first pure sounding set of bells and thus transformed the carillon it to a serious musical instrument. Between 1642-1679 they would produce 51 carillons. François was born around 1609 in Levécourt in Lorraine (France). His brother Pieter was born 10 years later. The Hemony family were clock casters who, during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), travelled through Europe to cast artillery and bells. Their father went to Germany, where François casted his first bells in 1636. In 1641 the brothers cast their first bells in the Netherlands, namely for the town of Goor. In 1642 they got the commission to cast a set of bells in Zutphen. It became a success and they made an additional 13 sets for Zutphen. In 1655 François Hemony was invited by the city of Amsterdam to settle there, under favorable terms, as a caster of artillery and bells and to cast the carillons of the Oude, Zuider- and Westerkerk. Thanks to their special methods of casting they were able to conceive very pure tones from the bells. Hemony only settled in 1657 with his family in a free standing house at the edge of the city, nowadays the Leidsegracht. The unmarried Pieter settled in the Belgium city of Gent. The casting company of Hemony was situated within the city borders, at the Molenpad (Mills path, between Prinsengracht and Leidsegracht) From here Hemony casted 20 sets of bells including several for foreign cities such as Antwerp, Gent, Mainz, Hamburg, Stockholm etc. Hemony also casted six statues for the new city hall at Dam square, that were designed by the sculptor Artus Quellinus (1609-1668). In 1664 Pieter joined his brother in Amsterdam. Together they executed several commissions. During the Second English Naval War (1665-1667), they casted mainly artillery. François Hemony was buried on May 24th 1667 and his brother became the guardian of his two children. Pieter remained unmarried. The Hemony’s were Catholics and remained so. Pieter would continue work until his death on February 17th 1680 and produced another 10 sets of bells thus making a total of 51 sets that the brothers Hemony produced. The importance of the Hemony brothers lies in the fact that they transformed the rather primitive bells that existed until their time into a mature musical instrument and their work can be admired in many European cities as well in many Dutch towns. They produced in Amsterdam carillons for the Zuiderkerk (1656; these were still cast in Zutphen since Hemony only settled in Amsterdam in 1657), Oude Kerk (1658) and Westerkerk (1658) but also for the Commerce tower (1653), which was moved to the Munt tower in 1668) and for the new city hall on Dam square (1664). But also in Haarlem, Groningen, Utrecht and Maastricht can we find bells from Hemony as well as in several other Dutch towns (Enkhuizen, Zaltbommel, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Delft, Kampen, Amersfoort etc.). The set of bells for the Westertoren became the biggest of Amsterdam with 50 bells. The heaviest weighed 2.000 kilos. ////////////////////////////////////////// 4.

Unreleased, unmixed and unmastered music found in the email vaults. I recently lost all my music catalog and it was detrimental. Came across these and it was that one piece of old material that I can travel through time with. Some of the only old unheard stuff I have. We decided to share it with everyone, even though it might not be our best work. It's a glimpse into a certain time period in our lives that we will forever cherish.
