Today, many carillons have fallen into disrepair or are simply no longer played because of lack of funding or interest.
Those carillons that can still be heard are all funded by government agencies, institutions or through an endowment fund provided by a generous benefactor.
Cast in Bronze is the only musical act in history utilizing the carillon that sustains itself solely by live performances and recording sales. It receives no financial assistance from any other source.
The creator of Cast in Bronze hopes that his one man crusade will preserve an instrument and art form from extinction.
