CHIME, founded in Europe in 1990, is a worldwide platform for scholars and students of Chinese music. It started life as a Research Foundation, but has now become a meeting place. Many of us have studied ethnomusicology, sinology or anthropology.

CHIME is an abbreviation of ‘Chinese Music Europe’, since we started our organization in Europe. But we actually operate world-wide. The word ‘chime’ (qing in Chinese) refers to many things we like: bell ringing, clear and resonant sounds, clarity, harmony, a spirit of agreement.
