I have just returned from a couple of weeks in Europe (Belgium, Holland and France). Whilst visiting the Flanders Museum in Ypres, Belgium I came across a guy playing the bells via a type of organ .. called a Carillon.
Extract from Flanders Museum Website: Playing the carillon, the heaviest of all instruments (some weigh in excess of 20 tonnes), requires great timing and skill. The carillonneur uses his fists and feet to produce a tune on the carillon ‘keyboard’—a series of levers and pedals physically connected to clappers inside the stationary bells. The player’s movements are only slightly more elaborate than those of a typical pianist, but the amplified results are nothing short of epic, producing vibrations that demand instant attention. If you are interested there is more information on their website https://www.visitflanders.com/en/stories/arts-and-heritage/for-whom-the-bell-tolls-carillon-culture-in-flanders.jsp
