Magical Mystery Chime - Calypso Island

Must be heard! Special acoustic effect makes "Yellow Bird" take flight!

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" note that comes 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 - all the notes of the chimes are matched with its "octave double".

Never before used in windchimes, this special tuning creates a heightening of the harmonics, creating a song that must be heard to be believed.

Our Calypso Island Chime is tuned to the last notes of Yellow Bird which is based on a 19thc. Haitian folk song. Harry Belafonte helped introduce this classic Calypso tune to America and was instrumental in making it popular through hit recordings by The Mills Brothers, Arthur Lyman and Lawrence Welk
