Music from Scrap Material

We have some leftover 1" conduit from our laundry project (see post below), so we're going to put it to use.

Here's the first prototype.

You guessed it - wind chimes.  The pitch of this one is A4.  It's surprisingly easy to get a pleasant, sustained tone from a piece of scrap.  There will be some design modifications, but the plan is to create 2 complementary sets of these - one set with A C E G A E, and the other with F(5) C D F A.  So one set will sound an Am7 chord, and the other, an Fmaj6.  The combination will have quite a complex of possibilities, hopefully with a pleasing balance of consonance and dissonance.  Time will tell.
