Cory Arcangel—Hail Mary
︎

Hail Mary sketch (on hotel letterhead), 2022

Introduction



Hail Mary is a bot for the American microblogging and social networking service Twitter which generates a score — loosely based on the American football pass of the same name — everyday for carillon (and carillonneur) 🔔 . Hail Mary is by composer, and artist Cory Arcangel, and published by Arcangel Surfware.  

The scores are free 😘 to be played at will by any carillonneur globally (please ping us below, and we can make a note of it!).

Please see below for a schedule of upcoming IRL performances ;-)

As part of Hail Mary’s inclusion in Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows, the 2022 iteration of the FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, the piece will premiere July 14th, 2022 in Cleveland in collaboration with carillonneur George Leggiero (and be played every day til Oct 2nd).

As part of Hail Mary’s inclusion in The Machine is Us, The MUNCH Triennale, IRL performances will take place in Oslo, Norway in collaboration with carillonneur Laura Marie Rueslåtten.
