In 1979, Garry Kvistad, founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes, had a dream of bringing music to people’s ears in a non-traditional form. Like many just starting out, the Northern Illinois University professor found he lacked the financial resources to pursue his hobby. So, with a strong will and an impeccable ear for music, he went tromping through a landfill in search of “treasures” to create his masterpiece. “At the time, scouring landfills for usable materials was not an uncommon practice,” says Garry. “I was looking for any type of metal with a quality sound to it. I spotted a pile of discarded lawn chairs. Instead of trash, I saw a free source of materials for my new hobby.” Using the tubes from the lawn chairs, Garry crafted a metallophone inspired by the scale of Olympos, a 7th century B.C. Greek pentatonic scale that Garry found fascinating. “You can’t play the scale’s ancient notes on a modern piano, but I really wanted to hear the scale of Olympos,” he says. “I came up with the idea of cutting and tuning the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the scale and then had the brainstorm of creating a windchime from the tubes. It was the perfect instrument that the wind could play randomly. Plus, you don’t need formal musical training to appreciate the beautiful sound.” From there, Woodstock Chimes took form as Garry’s musically tuned windchimes flourished in popularity, never once slowing down for nearly forty years. And yes, we still offer the Chimes of Olympos®—it’s one of our most popular windchimes!
