Magical Mystery Chimes - Space Odyssey
Must be heard! Special acoustic effect makes "2001" sound like a million!
Our Magical Mystery Chimes feature a musical phenomenon known as octave doubling. Here's how it works - you remember the Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do scale from The Sound of Music? The "Do" notes that come at the start and end of this scale are the same note, an octave apart. Notes separated by an octave are considered harmonically equivalent and "ring" together in a way that adds a pleasing sound to the music. Our Magical Mystery Chimes take this theory to the extreme - each note of the chime is matched with its "octave double." Never before used in windchimes, this special tuning heightens the harmonics, creating a song that must be heard to be believed.
Our Space Odyssey Chime is tuned to the intervals of the first notes of the famous symphonic poem, Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, more commonly known as the powerful musical opening to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film "2001: A Space Odyssey". The chime-within-a-chime design couples notes, in four octaves which exponentially increases the soundscape and quadruples the octave doubling effect!
At first I thot it was gonna be too loud to be right up on my frount porch, but it’s not! It’s heavey, so the wind doesn’t move it a lot. When it does , because of its weight, it’s just right. Wish I had better words to described it
Literally the coolest wind chime I've ever seen
My husband loved the sound of the space odyssey chimes he heard in a friend's yard. I bought him one for husband birthday that he has not received yet but know it will be well received.
Love this wind chime Music in the trees as I sit and read. It is large and needed extra room to hang but I look forward to a breeze to have music surround me
