In modern times, it has also been adopted as a secular discipline, as a way to improve physical and mental well-being. The Woodstock Meditation Chime is tuned to a scale characteristic of the musical style of southern India. Part of the Woodstock Soloist Series, this windchime's captivating tones are enhanced by a bonus CD of original music composed specifically to harmonize with this wind chime's "solo" performance. Together or separately they can each be used as an aid to meditation a sort of musical mantra to help relax the mind and focus one's thoughts. But they can also be enjoyed at anytime, simply for their beautiful sound. 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.
