Magical Mystery Chime - Space Odyssey
Don’t miss this amazing chime with its unique musical tuning! Sit down, take it easy... the film is starting!
The Space Odyssey chime is tuned to the intervals of the first notes of the world-known symphony Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Richard Strauss. This is the piece that Stanley Kubrick chose in 1968 for the opening music of his masterpiece 2001: a Space Odyssey. The special design of this double chime allows to duplicate the notes in four octaves. The result is breathtaking, as was the film when it was released: the octave doubling effect appears to be quadrupled to give a powerful and unequalled resonance!
The Magical Mystery Chimes are based on a musical phenomenon called octave doubling. How does it work? You probably know the Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do scale. The “Do” notes at the beginning and end of the scale are the same note, an octave apart. The notes that are separated by an octave are considered to be harmonically equivalent; when they sound together, the music we obtain is really delightful. The Magical Mystery Chimes take this concept to the extreme as each note combines with its double octave. It’s the first time that this type of tuning is used to create wind chimes, in order to enhance harmonics and to get an amazing sound. You don’t believe it? Listen now to this chime and feel the difference!
This wind chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee.
