Chime, an interactive musical instrument, is designed to respond to touch and provide feedback through sound by its residual swinging motion. A simple push on one wooden lever sets into motion a series of sounds, explorations of connectivity and smiles which has been described by music lovers and enthusiasts as an appealing, multisensory combination of easily accessible visual, auditory, and tactile elements.
Chime is accessible and easy enough for people of any age, fitness level or musical ability to operate and enjoy because tuned chimes are activated by a simple push on the vertical levers relaying kinetic motion from the player to the opposing side.
Chime breathes life into underutilized public space and is an adaptable and excellent instrument for creating more engaged communities. It offers a magnetic, mesmerizing discovery process and provides a unique and engaging gathering space for neighbors and pedestrians to connect.
