 Chimes for Tyler

8 min. / documentary / 2014 / USA

“Chimes for Tyler” is a story about a boy with autism named Tyler Doi who loves wind chimes.

Tyler has been classified as an autistic savant, and as such, he has an exceptional skill in a very specific area. In Tyler’s case, he can distinguish the sounds of the entire inventory of Woodstock’s chimes. And he can do this all by sound alone, without having to see the chimes.
