The 39 upturned Federation Bells have been synonymous with Birrarung Marr's Middle Terrace since they were installed back in 2001, playing a variety of compositions across an evolving weekly program. Now, the public sound sculpture will get a different kind of workout for Melbourne Music Week, at the hands of electronic producer Elisabeth Dixon, on Friday, November 15.

Set to soundtrack a free openair dance party at Middle Terrace as part of this year's Night Noodle Markets, the brass bells will come alive with an original sound work commissioned exclusively for the festival. Expect a boundary-pushing set fusing industrial techno beats and hypnotic trance-style drones to mesmerising effect.

Dixon's work will be backed by a serve of bass-heavy melodic techno from DJ RMR, along with a helping of solo artist Nerve's signature drum and bass-tinged electro.
