Came across an old celesta that had seen too many miles on the wheels. We added some metal braces to keep the foot attached and did some touch up on the finish.
Marching machines are used to imitate the sound of people marching down a road. I've made some from hickory, cherry, and chains for different uses.
Glass Wind Chimes
Some rare pieces call for glass wind chimes. While outdoor wind chimes can be used, these were made to imitate the tinkling sound of glass in an easy to play arrangement.
These 4 podiums were commissioned for the new Utah Valley University Noorda Center for the Performing Arts. Each one was made to match the wood used in a particular music hall and were designed for easy transport and storage.
These chimes were made for a performance of Holst's "Planet Suite". The chimes are made of aluminum tubing with a plug inserted at the top for a striking face. The low C3 is 8 ft. long and the frame can be adjusted to fit other notes for pieces such as "Pictures at an Exhibition" or "Symphonie Fantastic".
