| Journey to the South Pacific island of Java with the deep, rich tones of one of Woodstocks larger-sized windchimes. Java is located on the border of the Indian and Pacific Oceans and between Asia and Australia, making it subject to the iuence of many cultures. Javanese gamelan music is a combination of Buddhist instruments, South Pacific island dance, Hindu music, and philosophy, with the later iuence of Moslem philosophy and music. Composer Claude Debussy said Javanese music [is] able to express every shade of meaning. You can bring all those rich musical traditions to your outdoor living spwith the Chimes of Java. Woodstock Chimes are the original, musically-tuned, high-quality windchimes known worldwide for their superior sound. When listening to a Woodstock Chime, you hear a fine musical instrument played by the wind, perfectly hand-tuned using the ancient system of just intonation based on natural harmonics. 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 most beautiful musical intervals. The sonic effect is exceptionally pure and soothing. More than 30 years ago, the first Woodstock Chime was created by founder and owner Garry Kvistad from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. As a professional musician and instrument designer, he was fascinated by the Scales of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that cant be played on a modern piano. Garry had the idea to cut and tune the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. 25" L x 8. 25" W x 50" H. |
