Dance Chimes consists of nine bronze tiles equipped with mechanical sound elements. The sound elements were engineered by the European company Richter Spielgerate GmbH. The Dance Chimes are tuned to a five-note scale, a form of scale used in folk melodies around the world. Dancing or walking on the tiles activates a hammer mechanism that creates the bell-like sounds.
