WHAT DO CHIMES SOUND LIKE???
The celesta is a struck idiophone operated by a keyboard patented in 1886 by Auguste Mustel of Paris. A celesta looks somewhat like an upright piano or a large wooden music box. A celesta consists of a set of steel bars fastened over wood resonators and struck by hammers operated from the keyboard. The compass is four octaves upward from middle C. Its tone is delicate and ethereal.
SEE IF YOU CAN RECKONISE THIS TUNE BEING PLAYED ON THE CELESTA
A percussion instrument is a musical instrument that is sounded by being struck or scraped by a beater. The percussion family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments.
Percussion instruments are most commonly divided into two classes: pitched percussion instruments, which produce notes with an identifiable pitch, and un pitched percussion instruments, which produce notes without an identifiable pitch.
• The timpani is a Percussion Instrument
• A person who plays the timpani is called a timpanist
• The timpani was first used in Eastern military music
• It was brought to England in the 15th Century
• It became and instrument in the orchestra in the 17th Century
• Unlike most other percussion instruments they produce a pitch when they are struck
• Most Timpani’s now can be tuned by a foot pedal
• They are also known as the kettledrums or temple drums
• The timpani is played with a soft or hard mallet
• The timpani sound is made when you strike the head making the drum vibrate
• The tension of the head is what determines the exact pitch
• A looser tension creates a lower pitch and a tighter tension creates a higher pitch
• A timpani is made out of copper and calf skin or plastic
DEFINITION OF CHIMES
Chimes, also called orchestral bells or tubular bells, made up of a series of tuned tubes of different lengths, hit with a wooden hammer to make a
sound. Large chimes were first used in church bell towers as a substitute for bells. Later smaller
chimes were built to be in the orchestra, to be played by a percussionist
A celesta produces bell-like sounds and it sounds a lot like a glockenspiel but it sounds more delicate than a glockenspiel. Its very small and has no pedals. Tchaikovsky first encountered the celesta in 1891 when stopping in Paris on his way to a tour through the US. Within the Nutcracker, the celesta is used not only for solo play in Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy, but also in areas where the libretto was marked for "fountain-like" sound. This unique instrument gets its name for its celestial, tinkling sound.
