Whether you love lounging around the front porch watching the world go by or prefer hanging out on your back porch taking in the summer or fall air, you can’t go wrong if you add some beautiful sounds to your life. And we’re not talking about your run of the mill chimes either. You can transform your outdoor abode into a Japanese Kabuki theater or the meditation wonders of the monks Gregorian tones.
If you enjoy the simple pleasure of escaping into the sanctuary of your mind there is nothing that compares to music to assist in putting you into the right space. Many people will use earphones and white noise to escape the noise of the world, but wouldn’t it be better if you could escape into your solitude by literally setting the tone of your escape?
You must admit that being able to put yourself into the mindset of an eight century medieval church is intriguing. I know you’re wonder how. Well it’s very simple really, you see chimes are like any other musical instrument. They have a harmonic resonance that can be tuned by their shape, size, and material that they are made up of. The good folks at Woodstock Wind Chimes decided to recreate some of the great sounds that they discovered and recorded as they traveled around the world.
Now that you’re thinking about all those wonderful earthly tones, let me introduce you to the “not so earthly” tones. You can take yourself to another world with a series of “out of this world” chimes. That’s right, there is even a series of “planetary” chimes. One of the features of chimes that are part of a series is that they are “tuned” to the same scales. This means that whether you own one or all of the series, they will always complement each other.
Wind chimes are a percussion instrument. A percussion instrument is defined as an instrument that makes sound when it is struck. So while the wind may be responsible for the random movement of the parts, the pipes being struck are what generate the tones.
Why do I mention this? Because that is the same type of instrument as Big Ben, the famous clock in England. That’s right you can even take yourself away with a “Baby Ben” Woodstock Percussion Wind Chime.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your favorite book, sipping drink, and head out to your favorite lounge chair. Climb in take a trip deep inside yourself.

I am a mountain
I am a tall tree
Oh, I am a swift wind
Sweepin’ the country
I am a river
Down in the valley
Oh, I am a vision
And I can see clearly
If anybody asks you who I am
Just stand up tall, look ’em in the face and say
I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that mountain peak up high
Hey, I made it
I’m the worlds greatest
And I’m that little bit of hope
When my back’s against the ropes
I can feel it mmm
I’m the world’s greatest
