Must be heard! Special acoustic effect makes Madame Butterfly soar!
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" notes that come 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 - each note of the chime is matched with its "octave double." Never before used in windchimes, this special tuning heightens the harmonics, creating a song that must be heard to be believed.
Our Butterfly's Farewell Chime mirrors the strikingly beautiful pentatonic melody at the climactic finale of Puccini's popular opera, Madame Butterfly. When all is lost, the leading soprano uses a full range of human emotion to express her intense passion to restore her honor as the music builds in this tragic love story.
Must be heard! This chime showcases a unique and beautiful sounding feature called "octave doubling." Each note appears again one octave higher than the main scale. This expands the range of the chime while adding harmonic content and beauty to the sound
This chime was designed with a removable windcatcher that can be taken to a trophy shop, printer or jeweler to be engraved or silk-screened. Download windcatcher removal instructions here or watch a video here.
