A New Year Song - Walking Chimes

I love to make things from discarded materials and bring them new life. These chimes were made from discarded metal tent poles. The supports are bamboo from the woods near my house. I cut the pipes to make a C pentatonic scale. The chimes are spaced so that when you walk you play a song. The gaps are the rests.  I used metal coat hangers to hang them.  They are tied in place with curling ribbon.  This is easy to remove so that I can change the song periodically.  Enjoy the song and the new year!
