Description
Summary:The most important manifestation of conveying information in a community is speech. Before information was conveyed by articulated human voice, gestures had a communicative function on a par with utterances, and this is, for the most part, still true today. Every community devised an acoustic code system of sounds created by the contact of certain objects, such as the chime of bells. Bells are not merely the privilege of churches, chapels and cemeteries. Castles, for instance, may have bells to summon the laborers for lunch, or a smaller bell may hang above the gatesto signal the arrival of gueststo the residents. However, bells are most often used in religious practice. Bell chimes form a part of sacred time, at the same time circumscribing and regulating it; and bell chimes also follow human life from the cradle to the grave. Messages may also be conveyed by bells: warnings, summons and announcements. Folk observations that deduce pending negative phenomena or events from the quality and the acoustic properties of bell chimes are now considered a part of folklore. In such cases, the coordinates that carry message value are the most important (tone, volume, rhythm, etc.). Bell chimes signal a metacommunication process between people, because we must not forget that the bells are sounded by people, and it is ultimately the people who send messages by the bell.
