Description

It All Started With an Aluminum Lawn Chair…

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 their more popular 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.

Product description

Size:Medium

There’s something majestic about this authentic brass gong. Reminiscent of China’s Han Dynasty, it seems to summon courage and honor. The sweeping lines evoke the ancient art of calligraphy. Today, we’re familiar with the aesthetic gifts from the East, thanks to the ancient trading network known as the “Silk Road.” It served not only as a pathway for precious goods such as silk, jade and spices, but also for new ideas, technology, art and music. The lure of a long journey filled with romance and adventure remains. Handcrafted in the city of Wuhan, using centuries old traditional methods, Woodstock Gongs bring the ancient sounds of the Far East to your home.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill.
