Our new door chime arrived about an hour ago. I couldn't wait to get it up and listen to its beauty! Now, we need to invite people over so we can use it!

You must be of a certain age to get the reference to the 1967 musical Hair, but people—and fish—of all ages can appreciate a pleasant door chime.
Here's what Martin H. writes from Grand Rapids:
We love our ElectraChime. It's a nice resonant sound which we need because our house is a large two story Mid Century Modern.
Rachel Delphia, a Curator at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art was combing through the notes and drawings of one of the 20th Century's preeminent industrial designers in preparation for an exhibit. Serendipitously, Rachel found this post at ElectraChime's companion site, the Doorbell Museum.
The astute Curator instantly recognized the "Skyline" Door Chime as the work of Peter Muller-Munk. “The touchstone for him as a designer is the idea of bringing ‘beauty, reason and order’ to the rituals of everyday life,” Ms. Delphia told the New York Times.
In November of 2015, this never-used Skyline will take it's place among Munk's other icons of design including the Normandie Pitcher. ElectraChime is honored to lend a hand toward furthering appreciation of Muller-Munk's work.
