Wind Chimes

Wind chimes have been used by many cultures going back as far as 1100 BC. Believe it or not, they weren’t created to irritate cranky neighbors, but in fact were thought to ward off evil spirits. They’re considered a percussion instrument, and because their sound is created at random by the wind, their soothing, melodic sounds are classified as “chance music.”

The quality and tone of a wind chime is important because depending on the material, size and tuning of a wind chime, the sound it makes can range from soothing to annoying. A quality-crafted wind chime is important if you don’t want to drive yourself crazy from the sound.
