The Woodstock Story
Wind chimes are traditionally made of wood or metal, but they can also be made of other materials and in shapes other than tubes or rods: for example stones, horseshoes, mechanics' tools, PVC pipe, glass, seashells and old silverware to name but a few.
Every material makes a different sound, but the sounds made by such random bits and pieces are not tunable to specific notes and range from pleasant tinkling to dull thuds.
In 1979 Garry Kvistad created the Chimes of Olympus, tuned to an ancient Greek pentatonic scale. Its pure tone and musical heritage soon stood it apart from other chimes. It was and still is, a magnificent wind powered musical instrument, setting new standards for tonal and build quality.
Utilising custom computer aided tuning techniques along with the ancient "just intonation" system, Woodstock chimes take musical scales from a myriad of different cultures and periods in history to create true "Instruments of Nature".
