The Woodstock Chimes® Space Odyssey Magical Mystery Wind Chime features a musical phenomenon known as Octave Doubling. The Do's at the beginning and end of "Do-Re-Mi" are the same, an octave apart. Notes separated by an octave are harmonically equivalent and ring together in a way that sounds pleasing. The Magical Mystery Wind Chime takes this theory to the extreme; every note is matched with its octave double. This Space Odyssey Chime is tuned to the intervals of the first notes of the famous symphonic poem, Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, commonly known as the opening to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The chime-within-a-chime design couples notes in 4 octaves which greatly enhances the soundscape and quadruples the octave doubling effect. The Woodstock Chimes Magical Mystery Wind Chime measures 55" long overall.
