The story

Chinese door bells are used around the world. Tradition says it brings good energy, luck and Yang (from Yin Yang philosophy).
Normally they consist in a set ot small tubular bells, some symbols engraved in metal (also produces sound) and some king of movil wood spheres.
I sampled the largest bell at 3 different velocities and tuned them. I also sampled the metal parts. The swarm effet was created moving all the bells for several seconds.
I looped this swarm sound at two different velocities. The sound is similar to a vibraphone but the interaction between bells is very appealing.
