Woodstock Chimes WWOS Windsinger Chimes of Orpheus, Silver
Thick-walled tubes are dramatic to look at and offer resonance that lasts. Our Windsinger Chimes series combines computer-age technology with the very finest artistry and craftsmanship, allowing you to experience a whole new dimension of beautiful sound. Made from super-think-walled aluminum tubes which are specially-suspended, these wind chimes resonate much longer than other windchimes, bathing you in waves of enduring harmony every time the wind blows. The Chimes of Orpheus pay tribute to the son of the muse Calliope. In Greek mythology, Orpheus was known as a gifted poet and singer who had the ability to charm all living creatures with his song. Woodstock Windsinger Chimes are musically-tuned using an ancient system known as "just intonation." This means the frequencies at which the different tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole-number ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the purest, most beautiful musical intervals. This chime is tuned to an ancient Chinese pentatonic scale. Hang the Chimes of Orpheus in your garden and let it charm all who visit your home. In 1979, Grammy Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane still develop the chimes today as part of their family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Woodstock Chimes - The World's Favorite Windchime.
