Stellate Hexany Earth Chimes

I have some cool shows this fall that I am excited to share info about soon!

In the meantime, I just recently installed a set of microtonal chimes at Djerassi in Woodside, CA, USA. Stellate Hexany Earth Chimes are 14 microtonal steel chimes, tuned in a 1-3-5-7 Stellate Hexany. They are hung in a straight line for visitors to play with a stick.

The fundamental frequency is an upper 2/1 (octave) partial of the Schumann resonance 7.83 Hz. This Schumann resonance is basically the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field, and this resonant frequency is activated (or at least implied) when its upper partials are played on these chimes.
