"Triforium" (1975) by Joseph L. Young

DESCRIPTION: 
This 60-foot by 20-foot, 60-ton, concrete poly-phonoptic kinetic tower sculpture with lighted Venetian glass prisms originally included a 79-note glass bell Finkelbeiner Carillon with two octaves of English bells and two octaves of Flemish bells. The Carrillon was disconnected in a 2006 restoration and replaced by a Compact Disc player that is programmed to provide a synchronized music and lighting program. An original reflecting pool has also been removed.
Carillon definition: A carillon (US /ˈkærəlɑːn/ or UK /kəˈrɪljən/;[1] French: [kaʁijɔ̃]) is a musical instrument that is typically housed in the bell tower (belfry) of a church or municipal building. The instrument consists of at least 23 cast bronze, cup-shaped bells, which are played serially to produce a melody, or sounded together to play a chord.   Source:  Wikipedia
