Chime Swing

This is a large chime with a ring of aluminium tubes struck by a knocker activated not by the wind, but by a person on a central swing. Play a tune by swinging in different directions or close your eyes, twist yourself up, push back and then sway and twirl wildly to a random cacophony.

The motorized version turns the ring exactly, so that lazy, straight oscillations are accompanied by a melody in the same tempo.

       Curse you, Geocities, and whatever evil deed you have done to deserve blockage from my school network!   

       Has anyone been kind enough to mirror FarmerJohn's site?
