Koshi - Ignis (Fire) - Wind chime
The Koshi chimes resonance tube is made from bamboo veneer as it is much stronger than the natural bamboo. Being made with thin layers of bamboo produces a very high acoustic quality. Also, a new tuning technique has been developed to give the sound even more depth and enrich the harmonics.
Eight notes (metal rods) are welded with silver to a base plate inside the resonance tube. Precisely tuned, the notes combine and create a dance of clear tones that is rich in overtones. The overtones of the shorter notes (rods) eventually dominate and become the fundamentals, thereby forming a circular tonal range.
