Traditional chimes are characterized by the use of all or nearly all the bells, to construct messages using rhythms.
The bell ringer uses a rhythmic pattern, which conveys the message, making changes "not to bore or be bored."
This is the most direct way to transmit and build community emotions.
One of the main features is its variation: almost every cathedral had built his own language that was interpreted by the belfries of towns and villages in its territory, each with its peculiarities.
This traditional language has virtually disappeared.
