It's good to know that if I ever lose all my fingers in some hideous industrial accident, there's still an instrument I can play.

SuperChuck: I'd have to know what a carillonneur is first


The carillonneur or carillonist is the title of the musician who plays the carillon.

carillon (US:/ˈkærəlɒn/ or UK:/kəˈrɪljən/;[1] French:[kaʁijɔ]) 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. A traditional manual carillon is played by striking a keyboard - the stick-like keys of which are called batons - with the fists, and by pressing the keys of a pedal keyboard with the feet. The keys mechanically activate levers and wires that connect to metal clappers that strike the inside of the bells, allowing the performer on the bells, or carillonneur/carillonist, to vary the intensity of the note according to the force applied to the key.
