Abstract Bell-ringing is a fundamental part of ecclesiastical rites. The aim of this interdisciplinary project involving the long night of churches and the Akademie Graz is to provide a visualization of peal, especially for hearing impaired persons. In a first step, an analysis tool is created. Therefore spectral and temporal features are analyzed including fundamental frequency, harmonic structure, rhythmical motives and dynamic progression. In a next step, a real-time visualization based upon the found parameters is created. A realization of this project is planned for the next long night of churches in Graz.
