Service Please!

Program Notes

Service, Please! is the sonic exploration of a service bell (found in the University of Oklahoma Fine Arts Library) and its’ various components that make such a simple, widely used sound throughout the world every day. This piece also acts as a narrative that raises the question we all ask as we’ve rung the bell impatiently once, twice, and even a third time: “What’s going on back there?”


Service, Please! was written using tools developed in the Advanced DSP course taught ath the University of Oklahoma. The service bell, still on the OU Fine Arts Library Counter, is a standard chromium-silver service bell.
